  • Hydrological: Understanding the water conditions beyond basic chemistry will help to have the best stewardship of water within a shale play. We can determine if there is the ability to reuse water for continuing operations, or if there are other sources of water that are good alternatives to putting demands on the fresh water sources in the area.
  • Seismic: A growing community concern is that a poorly managed disposal can initiate seismic activity. To address these concerns, we conduct detailed diligence of the geology to select the best formation conditions for deep injection, as well as a continuous review by a petroleum engineer of the injection program.
