When: April 26th from 6:00pm to 8:30pm CST

Location: Oklahoma City Geological Society

Reuse of flowback and produced water is an important part of comprehensive water management in the oil and gas industry. The composition of produced waters vary significantly by formation and play, within plays from well to well, and over time as new wells clean up from completion operations. Water quality requirements for reuse may include a number of parameters for compatibility with the reservoir and fluid system. This presentation will review characteristics of produced water and examine how constituents effect water quality. Water treatment processes, stages of treatment, operational parameters and quality targets will be discussed.

Dinner and drinks are included with registration. Dinner is served at 6pm, presentation begins 6:30pm. See you there!
