Water Management & Proppant Logistics 2013 The 3rd Congress In The Sell-Out Shale Gas & Tight Oil Argentina Series Dedicated To Driving Down The Costs Of Shale Development In Unconventional Argentina

The potential for exploiting unconventional reserves in the Neuquen, Austral and San Jorge has led Argentina towards becoming a global, oil and gas producing super power. The focus for everyone now is figuring out how to exploit the vast shale reserves that the country holds, at costs low enough to justify production.

The industry of course, is still in the early stages of exploration, with only a handful of companies having drilled horizontal wells. Whilst a lot of work is still going into assessing the geology and geomechanics of the Neuquén, Austral and San Jorge, the next big question is: how will Argentina attain the equipment capacity to exploit these plays?

With stringent import regulations in place, and a highly unpredictable political-corporate climate, the cost of doing business in Argentina is nowhere near that of the US. For those that have drilled and completed pilot wells, the main difficulties have been importing sufficient proppant to complete the wells on time and identifying where to get the water required for fraccing in the middle of the desert - at low enough costs. It is no secret therefore, that proppant supply and water management, will play an integral role in the future development of the Vaca Muerta, the D-129 and the other unconventional plays within Argentina's three major shale basins. 

It is testament to the importance of these problems that for the first time ever in Argentina, executives and authorities from major shale E&P companies and regulators across the country are joining at the Water & Proppant Supply Congress: Shale Gas and Tight Oil Argentina 2013 to spend two days focusing solely on water treatment, water transport, water regulations, supply of surface equipment, proppant supply and logistics solutions to guarantee water and proppant is available for fracing and drive unconventional Argentina towards US level well costs.

Day 1 will begin by hearing how Argentina's major shale operators have acquired the water and proppant needed to bring unconventional well costs a step closer to those of the US. Presenters will then deliver solutions on water sourcing and flowback water treatment to identify how to obtain and economically re-use water to generate more supply in Argentina's desert shale plays. The latter part of the day will focus on regional water regulations and the environment, detailing the regulatory framework on water sourcing in the Neuquén, Chubut and Santa Cruz provinces.

Day 2 is going to focus on proppant supply and the logistical solutions needed to attain enough proppant and surface equipment to make shale wells economic in Argentina. The day will begin by assessing long term solutions for securing surface equipment, before heading into a detailed breakdown of how to acquire proppant from importing and regulations to local proppant sourcing and manufacturing. The day will end by providing solutions to water transport and in particular the different disposal options available to operators in Argentina.
