Missed Event


For the shale revolution to continue its incredible progress in the Rocky Mountains' Bakken, Niobara, DJ Basin, Piceance and Uinta....

.....there needs to be a consistent and readily available water supply. Accessing freshwater is becoming more difficult than ever, and there is now an increasingly pressing need to look at innovative approaches. Whether operators are looking at recycling produced water to minimize fresh water requirements or redesigning frac gels to cope with high TDS water, across the board there has been no shortage of creative thinking on the most economical way to overcome the problem.

What is lacking is successful, practical, economical application. By bringing operators throughout the Rockies together, the Produced Water Reuse Initiative 2013 offered an opportunity to find the most efficient water treatment in the space of just two days. A variety of the critical aspects of water management will be addressed by operators actively practicing them, including recycling, disposal and transport, with each session having the same ultimate goal: to drive down costs and improve completions economics.

What Was New This Year?

  • ROCKIES ORIENTED: Using data and studies specifically from the Bakken, Niobrara and DJ, Piceance and Uinta basins to provide solutions to problems relative to the unique characteristics of this region
  • ECONOMICS FOCUSED: With the main issue in water management being to be as cost-effective as possible, all sessions have been engineered to deliver solutions for minimizing completions costs.
  • DECISIONS FOCUSED: All sessions have been geared towards helping operators evaluate trade offs and actually make decisions on every aspect of water management from which treatment technology to invest in to using the right frac chemicals

Key Topics Addressed:

  • RECYCLING VS. DISPOSAL: Assessing the effectiveness of different recycling technologies to evaluate it as an economic alternative to transporting and disposing produced water
  • FRESH WATER VS. PRODUCED WATER: Examining the permits, regulations and the effectiveness on fracs to determine the most efficient long-term sourcing option
  • FRAC FLUID COMPATIBILITY: Understanding if it is more effective to treat produced water to be compatible with current frac fluids or use innovative frac fluids that are compatible with untreated water
  • PIPELINES VS. TRUCKING: Examining the costs of trucking vs. permanent underground and temporary over ground pipeline systems to determine most cost-effective method
  • INNOVATIVE DISPOSAL METHODS: Looking at innovative alternative disposal methods to avoid delays caused by disposal well permits and lack of disposal well availability
  • NORTH DAKOTA VS. COLORADO: Exploring the regulatory requirements in each state to build productive working relationships with regulators and accelerate permitting procedures
  • WATER STORAGE: Comparing the attributes of pits and water tanks as short and long-term methods for storing water in order to find a cost-effective solution for storage in the volatile climate of the Rockies and North Dakota.
