Kayli provides global support for onshore waste management issues through greenhouse research, technical knowledge and customer involvement. Her areas of concentration are in beneficial reuse of drill cuttings, water recycling and development of ecotoxicity tests to qualify fluids and additives for land based drilling. She has advised on oilfield bioremediation projects in several countries and has extensive regulatory knowledge and design experience on land disposal and treatment of drilling residuals. She graduated with a degree in Biological Engineering from Louisiana State University and has been employed with M-I SWACO since 2006.



 



 



 


Full Description

The presentation will discuss the current situation surrounding water usage and treatment standards in the U.S. Shale gas plays, this will be focused in the Marcellus and the Haynesville where the highest levels of activity and potential have been forecasted.  Regulations from Louisiana, Texas and Pennsylvania will be specifically discussed to demonstrate the challenges and incentives in these states for implementing water treatment and reuse onsite and offsite.  Finally, the industry response to the regulatory and PR challenges surrounding frac water usage will be discussed.
