Rationalizing The Cost Of Shale Water Management In Western Canada

The Only Event Entirely Focused On Optimizing Water Treatment, Disposal, Storage And Sourcing For Shale Operations In The Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin Returns To Calgary For Its 5th Annual Edition With A Completely Revamped Agenda And Speaker Line-Up

In the wake of the oil price drop Western Canada's E&Ps are assessing every part of their operations to ensure optimal performance. As businesses restructure, the time is ripe to secure the economic benefits of a considered long-term water management strategy.

Many pioneering initiatives and techniques are being trialled just as the benefits of older models are maximized.

But several questions must be answered for shale gas and tight oil operators to flourish:

How can costs derived from water management in Western Canadian tight oil and shale gas plays be rationalized?

How have Western Canada's leading E&Ps adapted to the changing regulatory framework?

To what extent can water trading and collaboration initiatives eliminate storage, transportation and disposal costs?

Now in its fifth year, the Shale Canada Water Recycling and Reuse Congress has never been more vital.

Showcasing the trials, errors and advancements of Alberta and British Columbia's most successful operators, this congress is driven by securing the economic benefits integral to every stage of a sophisticated water management plan.

Matters To Be Discussed Throughout The Congress:

  • Justifying Water Recycling At $60 A Barrel
  • Optimal Water Hauling Options
  • Future Regulatory Directions
  • Water Collaboration Initiative Potential
  • Optimal Frac Fluid Chemistry


  • WATER TREATMENT: Deliberating On Tried-And-Tested Water Recycling Processes, Cross-Play Compatibility Concerns And Frac Chemical Development To Increase Operating Margins
  • UPDATES ON KEY REGULATIONS: Discussing The Recent Changes To, And Future Direction Of Regulation, Effective Updates, Potential Standardization And Provincial Specific Concerns To Enhance Future Operational Security
  • E&P STRATEGIC COLLABORATION: Learning From Existing Water Trading And Information Sharing Consortiums And Examining Water Compatibilities And Common Infrastructure To Maximize Efficient Water Use
  • CHEMICAL WATER TREATMENT: Analyzing The Compatibility Of Chemical Deployment Systems, Biocides And Solid Extraction Techniques To Ensure High Quality Injection Fluids
  • WATER HAULING: Presenting Steel And Fiberglass Pipelines And Lay Flat Hose As Alternatives To Trucking To Minimize The Cost, Risk And Environmental Impact Of Water Transportation
  • WATER DISPOSAL: Assessing Statutory And State Regulations On Water Disposal And Quantifying The ROI Of Disposal Wells To Ensure Minimum Expenditure On Water Disposal


For Western Canadian E&Ps to minimize OPEX, it is imperative to get water management costs down to minimum.

For this reason, the Shale Canada Water Recycling and Reuse 2015 Congress will bring together a cross section of Western Canadian shale players to share their perspective on water management for shale operations.

  • Operator-Led Research: All topics were chosen based on the concerns of Canadian E&P operators
  • Reactive To Low Price Markets: Every presentation is focused on the strategic challenges caused by the depression in commodity prices
  • Cross-Industry Learning: The congress takes the lessons of heavy oil water collaboration consortiums and applies them to light oil
  • Cross-Play Water Concerns Addressed: The congress will examine how analysis of water composition and compatibility with various plays can inform effective water trading, treatment and collaboration, saving operators time and money
  • Multi-Stakeholder-Led Discussions: A broad spectrum of views will be voiced in presentations delivered by E&P operators, regulators, service providers, water trading consortiums and leading academics
