U.S Oil and Gas Industry collaborates to advance Energy Water Initiative

CH2M HILL recently published a report, U.S. Onshore Unconventional Exploration and Production Water Management Case Studies, for the Energy Water Initiative (EWI). The report synthesizes 12 case studies which represent a cross section of EWI member company’s—spanning Arkansas, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming. The objectives of the case studies were two-fold: to illustrate the diverse, regional water resource challenges the industry faces and share innovative strategies and lessons learned that individual companies have developed to continually evolve stewardship practices with EWI’s members and stakeholders. Read today's Access Water blog to learn more about EWI and download a copy of the report.
