It is imperative that we, as a society, recover the abundant
unconventional gas reserves with methods and processes that are economically cost-effective and yet ecologically sound. The talk will address issues, challenges and potential solutions related to the procurement of water required for hydrofracturing of shale and tight sands formations, and the disposal of flowback and produced waters resulting from such operations. Specifically, we will discuss technical alternatives for managing flow back and produced water considering the economic and environmental impact of those solutions. We will also discuss major trends in the regulatory space for Unconventional Gas development.
