Marcellus & Utica Fact File
The galloping growth rate of natural gas production in Appalachia will slow in 2016, but the Utica and Marcellus shales will be the only plays in the U.S. with dry gas production growth - Global Investment Firm predicts
Why is the Flagship Appalachian Water Meeting Returning To Pittsburgh Now?
Despite Marcellus and Utica production bulking up, many operators in the Golden Triangle have gone from high level of activity to extremely low level of activity,with everyone asking the question: What do we do with all this water?
The industry has become highly efficient at recycling 100% of its produced water, butwith operators having consolidated their frac jobs, the burning questions now are :
- What are the most cost-effective advanced treatment technologies that can handle fluctuating production rates? What are the producer's selection criteria? What is the overall cost of treating water would be with each system?
- Can Marcellus' produced water be used on Utica wells? Is there formation compatibility?
- How can injection wells be constructed and operated while ensuring seismic events are mitigated?
- How can E&Ps coordinate frac jobs and put infrastructure in place to make water sharing a reality and deliver significant cost savings?
- Ultimately, how do we manage this produced water going forward in a low cost environment?
The 6th Annual Low Cost Produced Water Management: Marcellus And Utica 2016, answers each of these questions and more with an industry approved agenda and supported speaker line-up, delivering tangible learning benefits to the minimize the cost per barrel and maintain operations in a low cost environment.
