Oilfield wastewater disposal volumes are expected to double in the Permian Basin within the next 2 to 3 years, a new analysis from global energy intelligence firm Wood Mackenzie shows. Former US Commerce secretary and energy executive Don Evans will lead a partnership of oil and gas firms that have pledged $100 million toward easing the civic strain of the shale oil and gas boom in West Texas and New Mexico. The rising oil production and produced water volumes in the Permian are expanding the scope and scale of recycling. Apache is aiming to have 50% of its hydraulic fracturing water made from recycled produced water this year.
