WHY ATTEND?

LBCG training courses offer intensive real world training programs that focus on delivering transformational practical skill enhancements...


...directly applicable to the workplace. These training courses have been designed to compliment the content of our world-class, E&P-led "Shale Gas & Tight Oil Water Management" conference series, which entail an exchange of up-to-date case studies from leading operators across the Rockies, Marcellus & Utica and Texas plays.

The upcoming Shale Gas Tight Oil Water Management Cost-Reduction Training Weeks will be providing practical hands-on training, from water experts that have had years of valuable experience in the field. While case study sharing is a brilliant format for understanding what results operators have seen by using different water treatment strategies, what it might not necessarily do is walk attendees through the decision-making criteria, the key factors that need to be considered, when deciding upon the optimal cost-reduction strategy for any given operation.

LBCG Training Courses have been designed to equip course attendees with the ability to make critical cost-reducing decisions based on the size of their budgets and operations in both expected and unexpected scenarios. We want to be able to share  knowledge that no books can teach or prepare you for, insights that can only be learned from individuals who have been in the industry long enough to have gained expertise through their own trial and error.


Water Treatment

Course 3

Wednesday October 28 & Thursday October 29

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This interactive 2-day master class will provide water professionals and water management teams within Shale Gas & Tight Oil operations, with the training required to gain efficiency and reduce costs in water treatment processes. A detailed tutorial on how to analyze the quality of your source or produced water, the minimal water quality requirements for different frac types and a step-by-step plan for designing the optimal selection, application and overall cost-reduction water treatment strategy, will deliver transformational enhancements to the work place.

AGENDA - Wednesday October 28, 2015

WATER CHEMISTRY, WATER SAMPLING, QUALITY ANALYSIS AND WATER QUALITY IMPACTS ON OIL AND GAS OPERATIONS

9.00 Morning Refreshments, Course & Instructor Introduction

9.30 am

MODULE 1: THE HYDROLOGICAL WATER CYCLE AND WATER CHEMISTRY 101                     

TRAINING OBJECTIVE

Understanding The Hydrological Cycle, Water Flows, The U.S. Oil and Gas Water Landscape, Regional Requirements And Challenges Related To Water Treatment And Water Chemistry Basics

Understanding the broader water landscape provides insights into anomalies which can easily occur in local geographies.  Understanding basic water flows, the hydrological cycle, and environmental impacts, are essential to sound water management practices. To understand how to treat waters, it is imperative that you understand the basics of water chemistry, and what constituents may occur.

COURSE ATTENDEES WILL LEARN

General water landscape and environmental impacts, and Water Chemistry 101

12.00 Lunch - Provided By American Business Conferences

1.00 pm

MODULE 2: WATER SAMPLING, ANALYSIS AND IMPACT OF CONSTITUENTS ON OIL & GAS OPERATIONS

TRAINING OBJECTIVE

Understanding How To Accurately Sample And Understand Analysis Of Water Tests And Determine The Impact Of Constituents Of Oil & Gas Operations

Understand the true nature of source and recycled water is paramount to cost effective water treatment programs. Amongst the largest challenges are accurate sampling of water, transit of water samples, impacts of natural processes occurring over time, and accuracy of analysis.  Further understanding of the impacts of various water constituents on oil and gas operations is paramount to understanding what must be treated, versus benign impacts which can safely be otherwise mitigated without risk to operations, while allowing unnecessary treatment costs.    

COURSE ATTENDEES WILL LEARN

Attendees will learn best practices in water sampling, water analysis understanding, and impacts of constituents on Oil and Gas Operations.

AGENDA - Thursday October 29, 2015

THE OPTIMAL SELECTION, APPLICATION & COST REDUCTION STRATEGIES FOR WATER TREATMENT

9.00 Morning Refreshments, Course & Instructor Introduction

9.30 am

MODULE 4: WATER TREATMENT FLOWS AND THE USE OF CHEMISTRIES IN WATER TREATMENT

TRAINING OBJECTIVE

Review of Water Quality Requirements, Overview of Water Treatment Flows including Pretreatment, and the role of Chemistries in Water Treatment

The old adage every basin is different is not only true in water treatment, treatment requirements can vary by well, completion interval, and completion preferences.  A solid understanding of water quality requirements, and the proper ordering of water treatment is essential to positive outcomes. While treatments can include chemical, mechanical, and molecular level reactions, pretreatment with basic chemical processes is often a fundamental first step to effective treatment and reuse.

COURSE ATTENDEES WILL LEARN
  • The best ways to combine treatment processes for low cost but effective treatment flows
  • The use of chemistries in basic treatment, water re-use, and as pretreatment for desalinization or discharge
  • Which treatment technology is the most effective based on the water quality in place and the water quality required for completions and how to apply these water management technologies in the optimal way

MODULE 5: SELECTING THE RIGHT TREATMENT TECHNOLOGY FOR YOUR OBJECTIVES

TRAINING OBJECTIVE

Understanding How To Select The Right Treatment Technology To Strike The Right Balance Between Optimal Results And Minimal Costs

There is a dizzying array of water treatment methods and technologies, and each has strengths and weakness that may impact usage in your particular application.  Rarely can one technology do it all, and costs and throughput can vary dramatically.  Understanding the key characteristics of water treatment systems, and how to appropriately daisy chain technologies is key to optimal treatment cost effectiveness.  Using systems which can treat multiple aspects of water quality can improve overall "bang for the buck"  and throughput.  Understanding relative costs of system use allows true optimization based on your particular requirements.

COURSE ATTENDEES WILL LEARN

1.Overviews And Operating Envelopes Of Primary Treatment Technology Classes, Including:

  • Mechanical Treatment and Filtration
  • Bacteria and Disinfection systems
  • Oxidizers
  • UV
  • Others
  • Electrocoagulation
  • Desalinization
  • Emerging Technologies

2. When to implement one type of technology versus another - which treatment technologies are best suited to treat the type of water you have to the quality you need

3. Relative costs of treatment approaches and other factors impacting selection

4. How to implement different water management technologies in a way that allows you to gain the most "bang for your buck"

4.00 End Of Day Two Training
