Marcellus Drilling News

MDN was launched in January 2009, during the heyday of leasing for shale drilling in the Marcellus/Utica region. One of our early focuses was to highlight lease deals by landowner coalitions. (Indeed, it was one such deal, in Deposit, NY, that inspired Jim Willis to begin writing MDN.) These days you don't read or hear much about landowner coalitions because most properties are now leased ...

Marcellus Shale Water Management Challenges in ...

Similar volumes of water per well will be required in the drilling and completion of Marcellus Shale gas wells. The challenge ahead for Marcellus Shale gas developers is to identify techniques to deliver the water required for drilling and completion and to develop methods for the disposal of brines represented by flowback and produced water that comply with applicable environmental regulations.

Roughly 72% of the water used for Marcellus Shale drilling comes from rivers, creeks, lakes, and groundwater in Pennsylvania. The other 28% is purchased from municipalities by drilling companies, removed from abandoned mines, or collected from rainwater landing on the well pad. Water may be transported to the drill site by truck or through temporary pipelines installed underground.

Fracking companies across the nation use a multitude of methods for disposing of the flowback water they produce. Dependent on each state's regulations for disposal, energy companies often have three different methods to choose from; deep well injection, open air pits, or ...

Water - Marcellus Shale Coalition

Water is a key component of the hydraulic fracturing and completions process, which creates paper-thin fractures in dense unconventional shale formations allowing the flow of hydrocarbons from the formation and into the well bore. A water management plan, including the identification of a proposed water withdrawal source, is required by state environmental regulators for all proposed natural ...

Marcellus Shale Water Management . USEA Briefing – 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Suite 550, Washington DC October 20, 2011 Short term issues tend to obscure the big picture costs of water management. Needs are constantly changing over time (moving target). •Early stage development tends to favor re-use of flowback. •More mature plays generally require desalination (possibly ZLD). Oilfield ...

Water Withdrawals for Development of …

Regulators estimate that the total annual water withdrawal by drillers into the Marcellus shale (roughly ten billion gallons per year) will equal about the same amount of water as thermoelectric power plants in the Susquehanna basin use in three days (Figure 6). In this light, the amounts seem manageable. But given that these gas wells often occur in remote areas where the closest water source ...

Marcellus Formation - Wikipedia

Description. The Marcellus consists predominantly of black shale and a few limestone beds and concentrations of iron pyrite (Fe S 2) and siderite (FeCO 3). Like most shales, it tends to split easily along the bedding plane, a property known as fissility. Lighter colored shales in the upper portion of the formation tend to split into small thin-edged fragments after exposure.
