Calling all Speakers

The Shale Water Management USA 2024 conference is seeking presentations that focus on the following key topics:

  • Making an economic assessment for shale water management strategies
  • Looking for low-cost and low-risk solutions in water treatment, recycling, and reuse
  • Evaluating the options and making choices in treatment-for-reuse and water-disposal
  • New technologies and technical know-how in shale water management operations
  • Upcoming regulations and industry standards for produced water management
  • Operational case studies and developing a successful water management program

The ongoing uncertainty around oil prices and the increasingly restrained regulatory environment have changed how shale operators across the region approach their produced water management decisions. As production gains momentum, the hydraulic fracturing wastewater treatment market is set to grow over the next decade.

New research shows more emphasis is placed on water protection through upcoming regulations and public efforts to influence the sourcing and disposal of produced water for hydraulic fracturing. Regulations will increasingly favor the treatment, recycling, and reuse of flowback and produced water, particularly in the Permian region, gradually replacing deep-well injection due to the anticipated regulatory pressures and large shale gas reserves. The treatment of flowback and produced water can be achieved through various technologies, including advanced oxidation, membrane filtration, and reverse osmosis, which all have proven results.

As this market evolves, increasing importance is placed on new modular treatment systems over more centralized treatment technologies. This conference will compare the economics of treating produced water for recycling and reuse versus the total cost of water disposal while looking at the actual volumes of water recovered from wells, the cost of water transfer, and the proximity to disposal wells.

Be a part of our multi-disciplined agenda…

The Shale Water Management USA 2024 forum will allow all professionals engaged in relevant disciplines to report on their accomplishments and exchange views. In addition, the event will uniquely emphasize networking and building new relationships, including generating dialogue in technical know-how and finding new solutions for a challenging market. There will also be an opportunity to integrate with allied industries and gain insights into new shale water management initiatives for mutual benefit.

Presentations focusing on the latest results and experiences in shale water management, particularly well-by-well case studies with new market data from past and current water treatment and water-disposal projects, are of particular interest for this conference, with other relevant topics of timely interest. 

Please consider participating in what is certain to be a highly productive experience with an opportunity to collaborate with leading industry experts from across the shale industry.
