Water management in unconventional resource plays has become a critical topic to the oil and gas industry in the last decade.

This course first establishes a foundation of knowledge regarding water awareness, water chemistry, fluid dynamics, and water analysis tools. Upon this foundation the course will build a model for optimizing water management in support of hydraulic fracturing operations, providing reviews of best practices and the latest industry technology, while always considering key stakeholders.
