With the demand for water for hydraulic fracturing in the Rocky Mountains set to double by 2015, it is estimated that cost reductions per barrel of oil of between 24 - 46% could be achieved through the application of advanced water recycling techniques in the region   Finding the most economical ways of reusing produced water will therefore be one of the key drivers for reducing the cost of operations for E&Ps working in unconventional plays in the Rockies. Meanwhile, operators need to determine how they can effectively source freshwater resources within increasingly stringent regulations and dispose of produced water cost-effectively where reuse is not possible.   To help with this, the 4th Annual Produced Water Reuse Initiative 2014: Rocky Mountains Tight Oil & Shale Gas Plays will be featuring a totally revamped agenda this year with 18+ operator case studies exclusively from companies working in the Bakken, Niobrara and other plays in the DJ, Powder River, Uinta & Piceance Basins.   Operators at the event will be examining the optimal water treatment storage and recycling strategies for minimizing the cost of reusing produced water for completions in Rocky Mountains tight oil and shale gas plays and determining the most cost-effective water sourcing & disposal strategies.   Key Topics Of Focus Will Include:   MINIMIZING PRODUCED WATER REUSE COSTS: Examining the optimal treatment technologies and recycling strategies for driving down the costs of reusing produced water for completions in shale plays in the Rockies   WATER SOURCING STRATEGIES: Evaluating strategies for working within existing regulatory frameworks to cost-effectively source freshwater for hydraulic fracturing   WATER STORAGE STRATEGIES: Identifying the most cost-effective water storage options for produced water reuse operations   REUSING FLOWBACK WATER: For the first time, as well as sessions on produced water reuse in general, there will also be specific focus sessions on reusing flowback water   WATER TRANSPORTATION: Comparing the economics of transporting water by truck vs. pipeline and overcoming the challenges of cost-effectively establishing central gathering systems
