High Drive Network recently covered the upcoming release to our now-released Disposal Well Risk Report. Join us as Phillip Jefferson (founder of UH Energy Coalition) and and the High Drive Network as we take a “sneak peak” into findings from our disposal well study and discuss:
- Common misperceptions related to Seismicity, Disposal well Health, Fracturing, and Risk Management of Produced Water.
- The controversy in distinguishing natural earthquakes, from man-made, or induced seismicity, and the challenges in tying specific events to specific causes.
- The importance of interpreting early signs of disposal formation fatigue, which can include formation pressure increases, high pressure gradients, and possible lost circulation zones, in order to assure future operations continuity.
- The emergence of water as being as important as oil, and how disposal capacity constraints and induced seismicity (in some areas) are driving demand for produced water recycling and re-use, along with the rapid adoption of midstream water pipelines.
- How to reduce operational and seismic risk, manage costs, balance out injection programs, avoid disposal capacity constraints, and stay ahead of possible regulatory changes.
- Why early insights into pressure trends and the disposal well landscape are essential to competitive positioning and assuring operations continuity in water- and infrastructure-challenged regions in West Texas.
