The Canadian Shale Water Management 2023 Exhibition and Conference, Calgary, Alberta, May 24 & 25, brings shale operators, supply and service companies together with leading water management experts and key regulators to explore new cost-effective water treatment, sourcing, disposal, and storage solutions exclusively for the region.
New initiatives toward more efficient and cost-effective water management solutions are being explored as operators seek optimal performance and low-cost water management strategies in line with the latest regulations and environmental considerations, ensuring long-term operational security.
SCS Engineers Expert, Neil Nowak, is a featured speaker at the conference. Neil will discuss “HDPE Produced/Lined Flow-Back Water Evaporation and Recycling Ponds.” [Optimization of the Evaporatio Process Using High-Density Polyethelene Session] Neil will discuss:
• Disposal and recycling of produced/ flowback water must be environmentally safe, low cost, and efficient
• Evaporation of water after the separation of hydrocarbon contents is favorable for environmental aspects
• Demonstration of the applications and advantages of HDPE utilization over the use of clay or unlined ponds
• Case studies of implementation located near Wright, Wyoming, Utah, Midland, and Texas in the Permian Basin
Key topics of the Canadian Shale Water Management Conference will include:
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
Upcoming regulations and industry standards for produced water management
Operational case studies and developing a successful water management program
