HOUSTON, TX, Feb 01, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) —
Infocast is pleased to announce their first Water Management for
Shale Plays meeting to be held at the Houston Marriott West Loop by
the Galleria in Houston, TX, from February 27 – 29, 2012. Hydraulic
fracturing or fracking for oil and gas from shale plays is thriving,
especially in Pennsylvania, West Texas and North Dakota. With this
backdrop of rapid growth, the Summit’s timing is impeccable.

Fracking consumes massive amounts of water; some experts estimate
that typical drilled shale wells can use nearly 4 million gallons of
water. To add to the dilemma, drilling sites are often located far
from any quality water source, pipeline or infrastructure and can be
located where water is in short supply, especially in West Texas. The
costs of re-treating, re-using, transporting and disposing of water
are immense but are an essential part of fracking and have created a
large, expensive secondary industry.

Therefore, Infocast has developed Water Management for Shale Plays to
provide a forum for EPs, field service organizations, water
technology companies, engineers, consultants and midstream
infrastructure specialists to meet, network and develop solutions for
this growing industry. The event will also deliver the latest
state-of-the-art strategies and best practices in water management.

Industry experts including Baker Botts LLP, Black Veatch, Lewis
Environmental Services, Inc., The Railroad Commission of Texas,
Warlick International and Wood Mackenzie will lead the Water
Management for Shale Plays’ Briefing. The Tutorial will feature a
roster of key players from the oil and gas community including Bear
Creek Services, Black Veatch, GE Power Water, Newfield
Exploration, Water Standard, WorleyParsons, and many more!
