Water generated by current E&P stimulation processes requires a complete understanding of the entire water management cycle to determine the optimal process with the most favorable economics. Comprehending the technical and operational drivers spanning from water source acquisition, to storage and transfer, to ultimate disposition for disposal or reuse is critical to a successful water strategy. Cost-effective techniques for managing this complete cycle of water management require a thorough understanding of stimulation fluid requirements, operational schemes, reservoir characteristics, production volumes, hydrogeology, engineering design, and environmental considerations.
Our expertise in oilfield services, combined with Schlumberger's extensive water management experience, provides operators with an integrated approach that encompasses every stage of the water cycle—minimizing water-related costs and reducing environmental impact.
Reduce or eliminate freshwater use and its associated transportation and disposal costs, while decreasing environmental impact.
