Oil & Gas Produced Water:

From Waste to Resource? DOE’s new initiative is identifying cost-effective and environmentally sustainable produced water management, treatment, and reuse solutions

Join Dr. Markus Drouven, Process Systems Engineer with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) on Thursday, April 14, for a live webinar.


Markus will explain how the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Produced Water Optimization initiative addresses the problem of excess water produced during the oil and gas process.

By 2030, oil & gas plays across the United States are expected to produce over 60 million barrels of water every day. Most of this water is characterized by high Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) concentrations, exceeding 300,000 mg/L in some plays. Even though many upstream operators strive to reuse produced water for hydraulic fracturing, disposal continues to be the leading water management practice across the United States. This talk will focus on the development, demonstration, and deployment of a novel optimization framework for produced water management and beneficial reuse.
