Produced Water Management and Disposal Trends

Historically, there has been a fundamental lack of transparency into the oilfield water asset landscape. Water data is locally relevant for planning and management in oil and gas plays such as the Eagle Ford Shale, Bakken Shale, DJ Basin and Permian Basin. An understanding of water sources, water production and saltwater disposal (SWD) assets within a defined geography is critical for planning and management of water. However, water asset data is fragmented across multiple public and private sources which are not suitable or structured for analysis of aggregated data‐sets. Functionality is limited to view data at the individual well level, many datasets are embedded in .pdf documents, produced water isn’t reported consistently, periodic 24 hour tests and limited GIS / data visualization functionality create problems for understanding and analyzing water management and disposal trends effectively.

Today, DigitalH2O serves as the analytical engine for water asset intelligence for E&P companies, saltwater disposal operators, transportation companies, oilfield services and energy investment companies. DigitalH2O’s platform provides comprehensive water asset awareness, sophisticated water production analysis and forecasting, disposal and injection well capacity and utilization analysis, world class data management, visualization, and modelling. With 21,483,149 total water production and injection observations collected from 297,164 active wells, DigitalH2O can help any company better understand the growing water market.
