General Meeting: Reducing Operating Expenses through Water Reuse

ABSTRACT of Presentation 

Rapid unconventional development with multi stage hydraulic fracturing, has dramatically increased hydrocarbon production in the United States. Water management in the oil and gas industry is a complex process, and one that can result in excessive operational costs and capital costs. 

Proper knowledge of the KPI’s and management of oilfield water life cycle can directly impact operational efficiencies and reduce operating costs. Understanding the impact of critical components in oilfield water, on fracturing fluids and the reservoir, can enable operators to minimally treat produced and flowback water for reuse.
