Accenture Report Shows Lessons Learned In Water Management From U.S. Shale Gas Operations

The report also emphasizes that in this constantly evolving landscape, water management options can change and that proactive engagement with operators in developing regulation will help the implementation of effective solutions and reduce the cost of compliance.

One area that provides immediate opportunities for some operators is logistics, according to the report. Implementing a logistics operating model that addresses the water movement challenges will improve congestion, efficiency and reporting of water movements. In some new markets, there are opportunities to design “for the basin” and even to share excess capacity and infrastructure, such as water treatment facilities.

The report points out that there will be increased focus on reducing the water intensity of production processes, and operators can achieve this by delivering efficiencies in operations, and by maximizing opportunities for end-to-end reuse of wastewater and water treatment. As the report notes, there are opportunities to work with treatment suppliers to gain leverage from new water treatment technologies.

Operators will also need to carefully assess the increased requirements for data on the flows of all materials throughout the life cycle of shale gas operations. Capturing, storing and reporting this data will require a new level of data management for operators – as well as regulators -- to effectively use the data to support environmental impact assessments.
