Water management continues to be the most costly aspect of operations in shale gas plays. Technology development is continuously emerging, and local conditions and requirements vary significantly. Solutions developed to address these local conditions and requirements often must be region-specific. As a result, the overall solution may require several separate steps for complete resolution (treatment, reuse, disposal, reporting, and a thorough knowledge of the various rights and regulations). One point remains true in all cases: The end result of proper produced water management in the oil and gas industry is savings, not cost.
Join us as we discuss the most pressing water management issues facing upstream oil and gas today. We will identify water management guidelines as put forth by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. We will discuss FracFocus procedures. We will address case studies of produced water management. Expert speakers will cover produced water reuse options, the advantages of produced water treatment, and produced water disposal techniques. Additionally, we will address emerging technology in the field of produced water management.
