Shale Gas Water Management – Complimentary Whitepaper
A whitepaper addressing the escalating water handling challenges and the profound impact on unconventional oil and gas operators, as well as how to optimize disposal, treatment and transport decisions.
Water management in shale gas plays is a dynamic challenge requiring the integration of drivers associated with changing water chemistry, variable flow rates, federal and local regulations, and public sentiment. This IHS whitepaper, Water Management in Shale Gas Plays, looks at water management challenges throughout the lifecycle of unconventional oil and gas wells. Our modeling work demonstrates that disposal, treatment and transport decisions must be optimized across each play and, in some situations, on a well-by-well basis. Sustainable water management in shale gas plays requires the integration of technical, economic, social and regulatory drivers, which are explored in greater detail in this whitepaper.
