The Produced Water Disposal & Reuse Initiative 2014: Utica & Marcellus will bring together water experts from across the Utica and Marcellus to deliver innovative practical solutions and share technical and strategic advances in sourcing, disposal, treatment, storage, and centralized facilities to drive down the overall cost of water management, whilst maximizing water re-use.
DAY ONE: DISPOSAL & RE-USE
Day one will start by examining how a leading operator has developed their produced water management strategy to reduce costs at every stage. Operators will then assess the effectiveness and economic viability of various disposal treatments and options including filtration, dilution, evaporation, public treatment facilities and other innovative disposal options to determine the most effective alternative to injection wells. Latest Chapter 78 and Chapter 13 disposal regulations will also be outlined to understand the implication of these new permits on operations.
DAY TWO: TRANSPORTATION, SOURCING, STORAGE & OPERATOR COLLABORATION
Day two will commence with a case study on how a leading operator has successfully pre-planned the quantity of water needed to ensure sufficient water supply and determine the optimal size of water impoundments. It will then move onto a case study looking at how a centralized gathering and water handling system has been successfully employed. Latest sourcing regulations and alternative sourcing options like acid mine drainage will be detailed, followed by cost-effective strategies for water storage whilst remaining in line with latest storage requirements. The day will end with an examination of how industry collaboration in storage, recycling and water transfer facilities can significantly drive down water handling costs.
