Full Description

Water management to support shale production in the Permian is entering a new stage of development. What started out as an expensive trucking based business gave way to greater investment in pipelines and storage facilities. The volumes of water used to hydraulically fracture wells continue to increase with real benefits in productivity and recovery. Significant capital investment has started to flow through midstream water management companies. These companies provide water volumes with high uptime, availability and utilization through an extensive network of pipelines, pumping stations, storage ponds, high capacity saltwater disposal facilities and technology for reuse. These companies help consolidate technical development of new technology while reducing capital expenditures.

This presentation will look at this emerging trend toward midstream water management companies, what they offer in terms of lower cost, greater utilization of infrastructure and capital, and the opportunity to implement state of the art water technology for reuse.
