BlueTech® Webinar Series: Produced Water from Shale Oil: Technical Assessment & Market

BlueTech® Webinar Series: Produced Water from Shale Oil: Technical Assessment & Market
Thursday, June 27, 2013:


11:00 am - 12:30 pm Eastern US Time

BlueTech® Research is pleased to announce the details of the next interactive web-conference in the BlueTech Webinar Series entitled: Produced Water from Shale Oil – Technical and Market Overview. The Event will be held on June 27th, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM EST; 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM BST.

Hydraulic fracturing of shale has not only revolutionized the USA natural gas industry, but it is quietly changing the landscape of oil production. When shale formations are ‘fracked’, some formations produce gas while others produce oil. Oil from shale formations is an emerging unconventional resource in the US that could revolutionize global energy markets, providing greater long-term energy security at lower cost for many countries.

Estimated U.S. oil shale reserves total an astonishing 1.5 trillion barrels of oil – or more than five times the stated reserves of Saudi Arabia. According to PWC, global shale oil production has the potential to reach up to 14 million barrels of oil per day by 2035. This amounts to 12% of the world’s total oil supply. Information released last month by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) indicates that oil and gas resources in North Dakota contain about 7.4 billion barrels of recoverable oil. Thanks to oil from the Bakken Shale formation, North Dakota has become the State with the second highest oil production.

It takes millions of gallons of water to frack a well. This webinar will explore the regulations, technologies, and management practices around hydraulic fracturing of shale for oil production. Topics discussed will include:

What are the differences between produced water and flowback

o   What kinds of contaminants are in the water?

o   What are the concentrations of contaminants?

o   How do the flow rates vary

·         What is the size of the produced water treatment market?

o   What are the growth rates?

o   Where is the market?

·         What are the dominant technologies treating produced water?

o   What are the challenges in treatment

o   What are the market shares for the technologies?

o   Are there new innovations happening?

·         Who are the big players in the produced water treatment field?

o   Are the big players big everywhere or is treatment highly localized?

·         Where are environmental regulations heading with Produced Water?

How It Works

The 90 minute session is interactive and you will be able to submit questions -live- to our esteemed speakers - via computer during the session. However, please note that since this is a discussion and not a formal presentation the only visual elements will be the information contained herein.
You will receive confirmation of your registration via email.
A separate email sent a (business) day before the webinar will include a toll free dial-in phone number and access code to dial into the seminar. It will also include the Internet address and login instructions to access the webinar.
At the time of the interactive session, you will call into the toll-free number via phone or speakerphone and log in to the special website. You will follow the presentation on the web; the Instructors will manage the timing and page changes of the presentation directly.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions at specified times during the presentation. All participants will be able to hear both the questions and answers.

Single Connection: $245.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $150.00

A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.

By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.

If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $150 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.

Should you be unable to attend, a refund, less a $50 administrative charge, will be made for cancellations received via letter or fax at least 3 working days before the event. We regret cancellations will not be accepted after that date. However, we will be pleased to transfer your registration to another member of your company or credit the registration fee to another Infocast conference if you register within 6 months from the date of this conference. In the event the conference is canceled, Infocast’s liability is limited to the refund of the conference registration fee only.
