SHALE GAS WATER MANAGEMENT: COST REDUCTION INITIATIVE 2012

3RD ANNUAL INITIATIVE: THIS YEAR FOCUSING ON THE SOUTHERN STATE SHALE PLAYS OF TEXAS, LOUISIANA, OKLAHOMA AND ARKANSAS

Water management continues to be the most costly aspect of operations in shale gas plays. With increased technology development, application and operator-led research than ever before, contributing to the advancement of water management solutions, the question for operators has become; which water treatment technologies are worth the investment and what can be done to reduce costs in water management for hydraulic fracturing?

Operators in the Eagle Ford, Permian, Barnett, Haynesville, Fayetteville, Woodford, Mississippi Lime and other shale gas plays in Southern US are continually striving to cut costs in water management by utilizing the latest technology to use, treat, re-use, handle, contain and dispose of water safely.

Shale Gas Water Management: Cost Reduction Initiative 2012 is returning to Dallas for the third time with the aim of building on the fundamentals of produced water management to improve the economics of water handling, treatment, recycling, re-use and disposal in Southern US shale plays. With expert speakers coming from leading E&P companies as well as the key policy advisors and regulatory bodies, this will be the only water management event dedicated to Southern State shale plays this year.

Main Conference Room

DAY ONE WILL ASSESS THE OVERALL ECONOMICS OF WATER RE-USE, PROVIDE SOLUTIONS FOR SAFELY MANAGING BACTERIA DURING RE-USE AND DETERMINE TREATMENT REQUIREMENTS FOR USING DIFFERENT TYPES OF WATER. FRAC FLUID COMPATIBILITY WILL THEN BE ASSESSED ALONGSIDE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF USING GREEN FRAC FLUIDS TO MEET REGULATIONS

DAY TWO WILL HEAR A CASE STUDY FROM AN OPERATOR THAT HAS DEVELOPED A CENTRALIZED WATER MANAGEMENT FACILITY AND EXAMINE REGULATIONS AND TECHNIQUES FOR DRIVING DOWN COSTS IN SOURCING, STORAGE AND TRANSPORT PLUS BEST PRACTICES FOR ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE HYDRAULIC FRACTURING

RELATED EVENTS

O&G Series

2012 AGENDA COVERED:

WATER ECONOMICS: Each presentation will be centered around one key goal – safely reducing costs associated with water management in shale gas plays

SOUTHERN STATES FOCUS: This year, the conference will focus on water management solutions specific to the southern states of Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Arkansas to ensure issues addressed are of optimal relevance to delegates

BRACKISH AND BRINE SOURCES: There will be a large focus this year on not only treating water for re-use but also treating brackish and brine water for safe initial use as a means to procuring a wider range of low-cost water sources

ONE DAY ON WATER CHEMISTRY AND RE-USE: An entire day will be dedicated this year to providing treatment innovations for removing hydrocarbon and solids from produced and flowback water and solutions for bacteria control and fluid design to mitigate NORM, scaling and corrosion challenges

WATERLESS FRACCING: Innovative solutions are driving best environmental practices and this year there will be a focus on the latest technologies for meeting environmental regulations and reducing or eliminating water requirements in completions

CENTRALIZED WATER HANDLING AND TRANSPORT: With logistics of water handling a topic at the forefront of operators mind, this year hear case studies of innovative water handling systems being used in shale gas plays and assessing cost-effectiveness of the myriad of pipeline options available

REGULATION STREAMS: As well as hearing from the EPA, stay on the front line of changes affecting the industry with specific streams for withdrawal and containment regulation specific to Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma
