SHALE GAS WATER MANAGEMENT CANADA 2011

3rd IN NORTH AMERICA’S LEADING SHALE GAS WATER MANAGEMENT SERIES

With the enormous potential of shale gas resources in Canada, E&P companies are accelerating their efforts of exploring for, and developing shale gas resources, notably in the prolific Horn River and Montney plays. Canada’s fledging shale gas industry however faces a growing clamor for tighter regulation and greater protection of local water sources, which is forcing Canadian companies to address and adopt best practice strategies, and innovative methods for better managing water at every stage.

Canadian Shale Gas Water Management Initiative 2011 endeavors to critically examine the most cost-effective water sourcing strategies & optimal treatment, re-use and disposal technologies for shale gas production in Canada. Furthermore, this leading event will examine the viability of alternative water sources and strategies in place to maximize the amount of flowback and produced water re-used for shale gas completions.

On day one of the event, Ministers, VPs and Directors will open the event by addressing how operators are sourcing the large volumes of water required for hydraulic fracturing in the most timely and cost effective way. Following this they will examine the viability of alternative sources and provide a case study presentation of the latest advances in using deep saline aquifers. Furthermore, they will then highlight current and future regional water sourcing regulations followed by determining the optimal treatment levels and latest treatment technologies required to re-use water. Finally, a cost-benefit analysis on disposal methods will be determined for produced water that cannot be re-used.

On day two, speakers will examine the latest strategies and technologies to reduce the volumes of water used in hydraulic fracturing and evaluate the factors determining water volumes. The focus will then turn to logistical strategies that can be applied to ease the reliance on trucking. Water storage and transport solutions will be examined followed by a detailed evaluation of how winter operations can impact all stages of water handling. Furthermore, speakers will address the optimal water quality to minimize damage to shale formations. Finally, the event will conclude by quantifying the real risk of groundwater contamination and determining strategies of how the industry can better work together to minimize concern.

The event will be the year’s only opportunity, focused specially on the Canadian shale gas industry where you can hear from operators themselves in what strategies and processes they are deploying to cost-effectively ensure they are developing the best practices of sourcing, treating, re-using and disposing of water resources.
