REDUCING THE COST OF WATER MANAGEMENT: GULFPORT ENERGY'S STRATEGY

9:00 Discussing Practical Opportunities For Reducing The Cost Of Water Management, From Cradle To Grave, While Maximizing Profit Margins

Water is 90% of what comes of the ground; the rest if gas and condensate. To some, water management is even more important than production. As the regulatory environment becomes tighter, and water management continues to be one of the biggest expenses producers face, E&Ps in the Appalachian are beginning to approach their produced water management decisions differently, asking some critical questions, including:
  • What kind of costs are operators running into today for taking care of their produced water?
  • What is the cost per barrel of reusing water versus disposing it?
  • What are truly the cheapest, lowest cost treatment options?
  • Where are the greatest cost reduction opportunities?
