Simulating water treatment using simulation software programs to optimize water re‐use strategy for unconventional oil and gas sector

This webinar will cover the benefit of simulating the treatment of flowback water, produced water and water for fracking in the unconventional oil and gas (UCOG) production. With growing state and federal regulations for water discharge, rising trucking and transmission costs encouraging water re‐use, it is critical that operators understand the benefits of treating and reusing water. Flowback and produced water quality differs with every well and, also, over time within a particular well. Thus, simulation is a very handy tool to predict scaling potential, corrosion issues and chemical requirements for produced water treatment. There are several simulation software packages on the market which can simulate water quality through certain treatment systems such as chemical reactors, heat exchangers, and proprietary membrane software that can help understand the fate of certain contaminants through a treatment system.

The webinar will outline the use of one of the software packages available ‐OLI for produced water treatment. The presentation will cover how to set up a basic simulation model, the software advantages and disadvantages and, interpretation of the water quality data. This webinar is a summary of WorleyParsons’ extensive use of this software package for several clients specifically, to simulate produced water treatment at the pilot as well as full field operation level.

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: $99.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $50.00

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 $50 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.
