Exclusive Forum for Shale Water Management for Canadian Operators

Welcome to the Canadian Shale Water Management 2022 Exhibition and Conference where shale operators, supply and service companies from across the region will meet with leading water management experts and key regulators in Calgary, Alberta to explore new cost-effective water treatment, sourcing, disposal, and storage solutions exclusively for the region.

While operators adjust to the current oil price market, new initiatives towards more efficient and cost-effective water management solutions are being explored and implemented in order to remain profitable. Operators are seeking optimal performance and low-cost water management strategies in line with the latest regulations and environmental considerations in order to ensure long-term operational security.

With the challenges of keeping OPEX down to a minimum, operators are faced with the choice of adopting either “low-cost disposal” or “treatment for re-use” strategies to manage their produced water. While the operating costs can vary depending on the proximity of the producing wells to local water-disposal facilities, generally 60 to 70 percent of the total cost of disposal is attributed to water-hauling and transportation expenses. Where possible, operators are finding new and innovative options to recycle, and reuse produced water for cost-effective and stable solutions.

With developments in treatment technologies, recent innovations in shale water management offer new hope for operators looking to maintain their economic margins under challenging market conditions. The Canadian Shale Water Management 2022 conference is set to become the region’s leading exhibition and conference exclusively for shale operators and a large array of supply and service providers to explore new opportunities in water management, water recycling, and water re-use to improve operational efficiencies and maintain profitability for both pre-existing wells and new operations. While referring to the largest wells, these technologies and operations best practices apply to all formations in the region.

The key focus for this year’s conference will be “Water Strategies for Canadian Operators” and the objective is to bring operators and service companies together with leading water management experts, including local government representatives to collaborate and examine new opportunities in water sourcing, treatment, disposal, and storage solutions and to address the real challenges in water management for shale wells across Western Canada.

Key topics on this year’s agenda include:

  • Making an economic assessment for shale water management strategies
  • Looking for low-cost and low-risk solutions in water treatment, recycling, and reuse
  • Evaluating the options and making choices in treatment-for-reuse and water-disposal
  • New technologies and technical know-how in shale water management operations
  • Upcoming regulations and industry standards for produced water management
  • Operations case studies and developing a successful water management program

This exhibition and conference will provide a forum for all stakeholders from shale operators and upstream service providers to leading water management experts and water disposal facilities to network and build cross-market relationships and to discuss the latest results in water management initiatives for the region.
