The Original Water Management Conference For Marcellus & Utica Returns To Pittsburgh,
Live (& Simultaneously Streamed) On November 1-2, 2022

As development in the Marcellus shale region once again accelerates, wastewater treatment remains a key challenge as the current infrastructure is stretched to its limitations. The region's sustainability necessitates both long-term solutions and short-term answers to meet today's obstacles. Only ten approved disposal wells in Pennsylvania are currently operational or accept oil and gas waste, thus most of the wastewater is shipped to Ohio, which has over 200 brine disposal wells. Moreover, recent links between brine injection and induced seismicity in Ohio and growing competition for wastewater disposal sites from Utica shale development will likely reduce storage space accessible to PA operators. In the future, there may also be fewer chances to reuse produced water in developing new wells. When the amount of produced water exceeds the demand for internal reuse, producers in the region will be forced to look for opportunities for external reuse, which usually requires desalinizing produced water.

There is good news however because today there are new, emerging solutions as multiple vectors justifying more beneficial reuse of produced water converge. Operators could potentially be sitting on top of significant revenue-generating mineral streams contained in their waste brines. The extraction of lithium from produced water, for example, may not be the only way to assist the United States in establishing an independent supply chain for its battery-electric vehicle industry. It might become quite lucrative for Marcellus and Utica operators as well as midstream players.

The combination of these factors makes Shale Gas Water Management Marcellus & Utica 2022 one of the most significant water management conferences since American Business Conferences debuted its pioneering series in 2011.

This year's conference has, as usual, been carefully studied with the market, since we do not accept open “calls for papers” and we do not let vendors speak unless they deliver case study-based material on the researched issues requested by the market. Invariably, this indicates that the subjects have been chosen based on extensive market research that reflects what you mentioned you wanted to learn to uncover actionable insights and solutions.
