Why Wastewater Reuse is the Next Big Opportunity for Hydraulic Fracturing

U.S. oil and natural gas producers who use hydraulic fracturing are discovering the untapped potential of wastewater reuse.

While reuse currently accounts for less than 1% of the 21 billion barrels of wastewater managed by U.S. oil and gas producers each year, the trend is rapidly growing in favor of reuse.  In fact, reports show 87% reuse in the Marcellus formation.

This trend is fueled by the growing number of challenges and limited options associated with properly treating and disposing of hydrofracturing wastewater.  

Irrigation, livestock watering, and various industrial applications are an unattractive option due to the strict regulations and high treatment costs. 

Treated hydraulic fracturing effluent discharged into surface water is not a realistic option due to the questionable ability to cost-effectively meet regulations, the extremely high treatment costs, and negative public sentiment.

In addition, shale gas production consumes a vast amount of an already scarce freshwater resource.

Reuse allows producers to reduce water management costs, lower treatment costs, lessen regulatory burdens, and conserve natural resources. 

Sign up for this informative one-hour webinar by Dr. Barry Stevens, in which he will explore both the challenges and opportunities presented by wastewater reuse in the hydraulic fracturing process.
