Our history and success in the Unconventional Oil & Gas sector began in 2010. Since then we have spearheaded a multitude of global initiatives that have been closely researched with the industry to ensure that specific solutions to the current technical, strategic, and tactical challenges are being delivered.

In the last year alone, our solutions-focused research has been successful in attracting over 3,000 attendees to our Unconventional Oil & Gas series, with 85% of these being executives from E&P operators.

The first Shale Water Management Canada Summit held in 2011 looked at the enormous potential of shale gas resources in Canada where E&P companies were accelerating their efforts of exploration for, and developing shale gas resources, notably in the prolific Horn River and Montney plays.

Last year's Shale Water Management Canada Summit 2012 brought together Operators in Montney, Horn River, Bakken, Cardium, Viking, Duvernay and other plays who were seeking out new and innovative methods to effectively source, handle, transport, dispose  and re-use water for hydraulic fracturing to maximize their profitability of shale gas and tight oil production whilst remaining competitive in a booming market.

This sell-out series is now returning to Calgary with a brand new agenda and learning content, delivering two days of case studies on the hottest issues in Canadian water management  to date to enable attendees to reduce the costs of sourcing and recycling and comply with the latest regulations during tight oil and shale gas exploitation in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin.

To Maintain Economic And Environmentally Sound Completions...

...operators need to find economic solutions for maximizing water resources and minimizing environmental impact to maintain a social license to operate in Western Canada.

The Tight Oil & Shale Gas Water Management Canada Congress brings together thought leaders from the most innovative operators across the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin to share their best practices for implementing commercially viable, sustainable water programs while achieving public buy-in to ensure fracking projects can continue:

What's New For 2013?

  • WATER SHARING: Exploring the viability of water sharing partnerships between operators to decrease water handling costs and reduce environmental impacts
  • SOCIAL LICENSE: Addressing society's environmental concerns and seeking opportunities to educate the public and maintain social license to operate
  • WATER VOLUMES: Outlining water use across the Sedimentary basin to understand the future demand for water resources
  • SEASONAL WITHDRAWAL: Implementing a seasonal water withdrawal program to minimize the impact on water sources

Also...Innovative Case Studies On:

  • WATER WITHDRAWAL SOLUTIONS: Pinpointing optimal sources relative to cost, availability and water chemistry to secure adequate frack water volumes throughout the year
  • PRODUCED WATER CHEMISTRY: Analyzing water compositions to select compatible chemical treatment programs and prevent scaling in the well
  • PRODUCED WATER TREATMENT: Examining technologies and economic treatment solutions for recycling water to reduce water consumption and disposal volumes
  • PRODUCED WATER CONTAINMENT: Selecting the most cost effective systems for safely storing water prior to re-use and methods for preventing spills and leaks
  • WATER TRANSPORT: Exploring innovative transport options to reduce both handling costs and carbon footprint
  • WATER DISPOSAL: Outlining cost-effective options and regulations for safe produced water disposal and underground injection
