Wastewater Treatment Technologies in Natural Gas Hydraulic Fracturing

Treatment and Recycle Technologies, Deep Well Injection, and Natural Gas Production: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

The natural gas exploration and production (E&P) market is expected to begin recovering from a price shock later in 2016. Following a gradual increase in the global prices of natural gas, natural gas exploration in unconventional formations will reemerge. A greater emphasis on water protection through regulations and public efforts will influence the sourcing and disposal of water for hydraulic fracturing. Regulations will increasingly emphasize the treatment and recycle of flowback and produced water over deep well injection.
The treatment of flowback and produced water can be achieved through a variety of different technologies. These include advanced oxidation, membrane filtration, and reverse osmosis. Growing importance will be placed on modular treatment systems, as opposed to more centralized treatment technologies. There are a number of companies entering the modular treatment system market, and several consulting firms are designing custom treatment systems. According to Navigant Research, revenue from wastewater treatment and recycle systems in the United States is expected to reach $3.8 billion by 2025.

This Navigant Research report covers the market for wastewater treatment and recycle systems, as well as deep well injection, in hydraulic fracturing. The study looks at the hydraulic fracturing market around the world, focusing on the United States, Canada, and China. Global market forecasts, segmented by disposal type and region, extend through 2025. The hydraulic fracturing market is broken down by the amount of water in, and total market for, deep well injection and recycle with treatment.
