OK Water Group Releases Report for produced water disposal from oil and gas operations

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO)- Oklahoma's Water for 2060 Produced Water Working Group (PWWG) released its report as part of a review of alternatives for produced water disposal from oil and gas operations in Oklahoma. The goal of the group was to find a way for water produced in oil and natural gas operations to be recycled or reused as part of Oklahoma's ongoing efforts to promote water supply reliability and drought resiliency across multiple water user sectors.

"I know many of the oil and gas producers in Oklahoma continue to work diligently on the issue of water reuse and recycling innovation, and they remain committed to responsible development of our state's resources.  At the same time, our agencies are working diligently on responsible and cost-effective ways to harness Oklahoma's marginal quality waters for use as a way to better manage Oklahoma's fresh water supplies,” said Governor Mary Fallin.

The report identified several options including treatment and reuse of produced water by local oil and gas operations, transfer to areas of high demand, and use of evaporation technologies.
