D&P Waste:Water Reclamation & Reuse

Join us for the inaugural meeting of the new Drilling & Production Waste Management Study Group, with an expanded focus to cover handling all upstream oil and gas waste streams cost-effectively.

Event Sponsors for our first meeting are Environmental Drilling Solutions, LLC. and Select Energy Services
Our first meeting will be kicked off by Roland Moreau, SPE Technical Director of Health, Safety, Security, Environment and Social Responsibility [HSSE SR], addressing “SPE Hot Topics – Water Management.”
Moreau serves on the Board of Directors of SPE International. He will update us on the ranking of what water use issues require the most immediate attention.
Following that introduction, the main speaker, Rick McCurdy, will present an overview of industry efforts towards minimizing fresh water demand for drilling and hydraulic fracturing through the reuse of produced water and the technologies currently available to help with these goals. The presentation will also cover new technologies being evaluated and regulatory challenges that the industry must overcome. Drinking water is precious, as we know from the drought in Texas, and using millions of gallons of fresh water for fracturing operations will meet with opposition from the public if we don't conserve today. There will also be several door prizes ranging in value from $50 to $200.
