Drought response=Waterless laundry to vacuum sewers & toilets / coal seam gas’ motherload of produced water

UPDATE April 2015 http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-04-08/shell-to-sell-twice-as-much-lng-as-exxon-chevron-after-bg-deal

Below speaks of what to do about TX drought/water shortages and the opposite effect from gas production with too much ‘produced water’.

All that disturbed produced water from the ancient oceans…Coal Seam Gas was the worst offender…lovely that Chevron Royal Dutch Shell will go after that business big time…dang. Chervon Shell will maximize its LNG exports AND PRODUCED WATER that this globe cannot handle disposal of without a bunch of frack quakes!!!!!! Coal Bed Methane represents only 2.4% of global gas production, yet accounts for an estimated 67% of the global ‘produced water’ that gets disturbed, brought up, and needs to be disposed of properly.

Texas Government Insider reports…..

Current drought in Texas now worst on record in state

“Alternative water sources are also being explored, according to BlueTech’s report, including rainwater harvesting, capturing and treating storm water and seawater toilet flushing. Some innovative solutions are also being studied that avoid the use of water altogether, such as vacuum sewers and toilets, waterless cooling and waterless laundry and dyeing.  Water reclamation and re-use projects are getting attention.”

BlueTech has been busy writing papers about the hydraulic fracking industry.  Interesting tweet chart here. It shows that globally extracting shale gas has produced waste water (not including flowback waste) representing 22% of all gas production related produced water waste requiring proper treatment or disposal. Contrast that to how only 6.3% of gas production globally is from shale gas…hmmmn

Drilling for Conventional Gas (like the Arabs do) has a definite advantage over fracking’s Unconventional Shale Gas in that Conventional Gas has 13 times more production at half the waste generated from Shale Gas…. 

Here is the twitter version…

ConventionalGas(Arab gas)=13x’stheProduction@1/2theWasteWaterGenerated Compared2ShaleGasWasteWater 

Conventional drilling has an even more advantage over Coal Bed Methane in that it has 35 times more production at a tenth of the waste. Put another way, Coal Bed Methane represents only 2.4% of global gas production, yet accounts for an estimated 67% of the global ‘produced water’ that gets disturbed, brought up, and needs to be disposed of properly.

Tight Gas produces no water waste per this chart and I read that these fromations have little water and the gas is so tightly held that acidizing techniques are used.

Like Bubba Gump and his shrimp varieties, RigZone says.“Right now, there are six main types of unconventional gas, including deep gas, gas-containing shales, coalbed methane, geopressurized zones, Arctic and subsea hydrates, and tight gas.”

With gas extraction comes produced water waste…the wrong kind of water needed in a drought! Water that once is injected into the earth needs to stay gone forever and not find its way into our drinking water sources that are dwindling and threatened with contamination.

What if we could use a desalination cell technique to clean up frack water? Here is a white paper that says you can…but still we have the whole air pollution & earth quake thing to contend with…..still renewables are looking better with time and drought!

So what does our new short sighted Governor Abbott consider an emergency as of February 20 2015?…..NOT THE DROUGHT!~


About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
