Oil & Gas Floating Covers

Evaporation Control Covers for Upstream Oil & Gas  (EL 6030 Evaporation Control Cover Project Profile)

Layfield’s engineered evaporation control covers are used to prevent evaporation of important surface water and fluids used in a variety of Oil & Gas containment applications.  

Oil and gas producers require large amounts of water for horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing of shale formations that release and produce trapped oil and gas. These large, open fresh water pits are highly susceptible to evaporation, especially in more arid climates like those found in West Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. Evaporation rates in West Texas can range from 50 to 70 inches in a year, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars over the lifetime of a pit. This evaporation can be reduced producing large cost saving benefits with the use of evaporation control covers.  

Key Features:

• Designed to prevent evaporation

• Resistant to chemicals, frac fluids, and brine

• Wide range of operating temperatures and pH levels

• Economical, durable and lightweight

• Prefabricated into large panels and ready for


• They can be used in both tanks and pits

• Available in black, white, and other colors

We will only work with reputable suppliers like Layfield as their Geogrids perform as per recognized specifications." Kenny, Engineering & Scientific Consultant,
