Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

The advent of multi-stage high volume fracturing of gas and oil shales has brought about the need to reuse frac flow back and produced brine for subsequent well drilling and completion operations. To meet this need, advanced water treatment technology is being developed and implemented in numerous projects in the U.S. and Canada. Along with the new field practices is coming the need to find more affordable and more rapid analytic techniques to monitor these processes.

This web event covers the rapid onset of various techniques to manage produced water in unconventional development. We focus on first the need to reduce the water footprint of drilling and completion and then describe some of the successful processes that are being employed. We conclude with examples of advanced analytic techniques that Texas A&M GPRI is using in field trials to monitor its multi-stage pre-treatment processes in both the Marcellus and the Eagle Ford Shales.
