RESOURCE REVOLUTION: THE ENERGY/WATER NEXUS IN UNCONVENTIONAL OIL & GAS

 

 

 

The dynamic transformation of the global oil and gas sectors continues to present unprecedented opportunities – and significant challenges. Within its lifetime, an unconventional well may use up to 13 million gallons of water and, while this was once a drop in the ocean in comparison to North America’s abundant freshwater sources, today, it’s crippling.

 

 

 

Water scarcity, resiliency and wastewater quality are serious issues, and as the energy marketplace continues to rapidly evolve, significant resource investment in water is critical. Leaders across both sectors, as well as industry and regulatory, must collectively focus on accelerating the adoption of water technology to facilitate sustainable unconventional oil and gas processes. The security of our water/energy future depends on it.

More than ever, water is inextricably linked to the future of energy. The oil and gas industry continues to explore unconventional sources, requiring and pushing the technological limits of breakthrough water treatment solutions. Together, leveraging social and human capital, the sectors are paving the way to solving energy issues in the 21st century through technology.

10:40 a.m. – 11:40 a.m.          Panel Session:

 

Power, Promise and Peril: Policy and Regulation in Unconventional Oil & Gas
50 minutes moderated panel discussion; 10 minutes audience Q&A

 

 

 

With shifting global supply, energy innovations and emerging technologies, large financial implications and market fluctuations, and the rising influence of geo-political issues, oil and gas companies must remain committed to being at the forefront of innovation in exploration and production. This commitment, however, depends largely on water – and industry-friendly policy and legislation and other government-regulated rules from the U.S. and abroad. How can industry and government work together to advance the potential of our water/energy future?
