Infocast, the leading producer of business intelligence and networking events in the water management and O&G industries, is set to host the 3rd Water Management for Shale Plays meeting, set to take place on October 23-25, 2012 in Pittsburgh, PA.
With the continuing increase in hydraulic fracturing in shale plays for oil and gas, the consumption of water necessary in operations has also continued to climb. Experts believe that shale wells consume nearly 5 million gallons of water. Due to regulations and best practices, water is re-treated, reused, transported and disposed of. The immense costs of such essential procedures have developed a secondary industry. Adding to the dilemma, drilling sites are often located far from any quality water source, pipeline or infrastructure, even as water supplies progressively become scarcer.
The 3rd Water Management for Shale Plays event provides an opportunity to bring together leading E&Ps, field service organizations and water technology specialists to share in the discussions of state-of-the-art strategies and cost-effective practices in water management. The wide range of discussions will include topics on the development of optimal water management systems for hydraulic fracturing, maximization of efficiencies through the use of on-site water storage, exploration of alternative water sources for fracing, assessment of innovative technologies for the treatment of shale water and the usage of mobile water treatment systems.
The Infocast event allows attendees a rare networking opportunity with industry executives, consultants, specialists, service providers and other influential stakeholders. Presentation features from knowledgeable professionals will also touch on the economic aspect of good water management systems, integration of effective treatments, new technologies and the essential supporting infrastructures.
Featured keynote speakers include Brent Giles from Lux Research, Mike Krancer from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, John Owsiany from Consol Energy and Ron Pettengill from Epiphany Solar Water Systems.
