The Tight Oil & Shale Gas Water Treatment & Re-Use Canada Initiative 2014 will...

...bring together unconventional operators within the WCSB to identify water treatment and re-use technologies for enabling the use of saline, high TDS and sour water in future hydraulic fracturing operations within the Duvernay, Montney, Nordegg, Cardium, Viking and Horn River Basin and emerging shale plays.

What's Unique About The Tight Oil & Shale Gas Water Treatment & Re-Use Initiative, Canada 2014?

  • Focus On Water Treatment Technologies: In order to streamline the arduous process of selection and assessment of the optimum treatment methodologies for both produced and flowback water, the conference provides unbiased, operator-lead insight on the best treatment methodologies/practices for water recycling and re-use so that every company doesn't have to duplicate expenditure in testing them out.
  • Aiding The Transition Between Fresh And Saline Water Use: Due to evolving regulations, the transition from fresh to saline water is an ultimate aim of most operators in Canada; which is why this conference provides cost-effective analysis of how this can be done successfully to aid the industry to take those steps to using saline water as a replacement of freshwater
  • Treatment Options Addressed Per Water Type: In order to identify the optimal methods needed to treat specific water types, we will be examining tried and tested treatment methods to combat high salinity, TDS and h2s to investigate which method works best with which water type
  • Cost Reduction Theme: Every industry professional knows how expensive water treatment technologies are to buy and run, which has been making the transition to non-fresh water sources more difficult. It is for this reason we are focusing on how best to maximize return on investment when identifying water treatments to allow the industry to further minimize freshwater use
  • Specific To Water Management In Purely Unconventional Plays In Canada: This conference is tailored entirely to those operators dealing with water in shale gas and tight oil plays within Canada. Through expert insight and case studies of water management developments from operators throughout unconventional plays in Western Canada, best practices and successes as well as failures will be outlined to bring help to any operator with interest in Canadian unconventional plays
