COST-EFFECTIVELY HANDLE WATER OVER THE FULL LIFE OF THE WELL 'FROM SOURCING TO DISPOSAL'

FULL LIFE-CYCLE WATER MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES

9:00 Leverage New Strategies To Manage Produced Water Volumes - From Sourcing To Disposal - And Drive Water Management Efficiencies And Reduce LOE

Increased volumes of produced fluid, and the increasingly restrained regulatory environment around sourcing and disposal has changed the way E&Ps in the Permian are approaching their produced water management strategies. Technical understanding of water as part of the whole basin has evolved, and water management is no longer an isolated 'cleaning' task - it is a critical part of the business. Companies have to be willing to manage their water for the long-term, and not just for the short fraccing exercise

Hear a leading Permian operator deliver unique insight on how to maximize management efficiencies from cradle to the grave

  • Source Or Reuse? Sharing tangible data to back the decision to choose one water management strategy over the other
  • Water Qualities: Understand how the operator accounted for varying water qualities and formation characteristics to devise its water management plan
  • Treat Or Change Frac Package? Learn how the operator compared the economics of treating water vs. rates of changing the frac package
  • Reuse Or Dispose? Understand how this player weighed up the cost vs. benefit of reuse and proximity of SWD facilities to find a home for produced water
  • Water Transfer: Learn how this operator plans to move large volumes of produced water through pipelines and trucks
  • Understand why shallow disposal is the biggest hazard in the Midland Basin
