Full Description

 ABSTRACT

With the increased water usage utilized for unconventional development the consumptive use of water is a concern for many in our industry.  This presentation will discuss:

{1} current water sourcing and treatment practices across some prominent US basins/plays,

{2} what some basin specific challenges are, and

{3} what trends & solutions look to be promising in terms of technology, but also economics & feasibility, and

{4} who some of the leading players are in implementing them.

The talk will also touch on the best practices  for utilization of alternate water sources with high total dissolved solids for both cross link and slick water frac needs for completion. 

A technical and economic evaluation of the three basic approaches that include water treatment, bulk mixing with fresh water as well as modification of high TDS fluids, will be presented in an effort to educate regarding the best practices for sustainable development.
