While many E&P companies in the Marcellus and Utica are currently recycling produced water for reuse in the next frac job, the volume of water currently being produced is starting to increase beyond what can be recycled. The demand for innovative treatments and disposal options is rapidly on the rise as operators seek the most cost-effective strategies for handling the increasing volumes of excess produced water that cannot be re-used in operations.
With disposal costs per barrel continuing to soar, what is currently needed is an evaluation of all available disposal options across Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia to determine the most effective solutions for Utica and Marcellus operators to economically and compliantly, dispose of produced water. Disposal permits processes need to be clarified, new treatment technologies for disposal validated, public treatment facilities explored and disposal well availability and permitting processes re-evaluated across the different states.
MAXIMIZING THE PERCENTAGE OF WATER RE-USED
Whilst concerted efforts are being made to drive down the costs of disposal in the Marcellus, similar efforts are simultaneously being made to maximize the percentage of water reused. Continually evolving and complex storage and sourcing regulations combined with high disposal costs mean operators across the Utica and Marcellus need to drive forward innovative techniques and cost efficiencies through strategies such as operator collaboration. Operator's need to capitalize on the close proximity of these plays and implement multi-user centralized treatment, storage and waterline facilities to ensure produced water that cannot be re-used in one E&P company's operations, can be re-used effectively in another - creating solutions for water scarcity whilst reducing costs at every stage of water management; sourcing, re-use, storage, transportation and disposal.
The Produced Water Disposal & Reuse Initiative 2014: Utica & Marcellus will bring together water experts from across the Utica and Marcellus to deliver innovative practical solutions and share technical and strategic advances in sourcing, disposal, treatment, storage, and centralized facilities to drive down the overall cost of water management, whilst maximizing water re-use.
