February Oil and Gas Facilities Now Available

Unconventional resources are highlighted in this issue. Operators are using alternative methods of water management, including recycling and reuse of their flowback and produced water, and at the same time, reduce the volumes of flowback and produced water that have to be transported, treated, and disposed. One size does not fit all, and economic variables differ across fields, wells, and operators.
