As shale plays in the Western United States are increasingly developed, the amount of water needed for hydraulic fracturing operations continues to skyrocket. However, the amount of available water hasnít increased, but rather in many cases become even scarcer. This mismatch between supply and demand for water and related services, which is seriously impacting the increasing costs of water sourcing, storage, treatment, transport and disposal, suggests how critical an optimum water management system has become to the overall success of todayís E&P companies.
Marcus Gay from IHS has recently stated that water management is at the fulcrum of the balancing act between the oil and gas industryís social license to operate and its economic performance. Only those who are primed with a cost-effective and environmentally conscious water management system will reap the financial returns on investment.
