Shale Plays Media shares an article on the projections for water used by the oil and gas industry in the Permian Basin. It continues to increase through 2014, and the trend is expected to continue.
PacWest Consulting Partners in Houston just last month estimated the oil industry would use 540 million barrels of water in 2014 — almost all of it, for hydraulic fracturing. It reflected a stark upward revision by the firm, one of the few that tracks industry water usage by region. In February, the PacWest anticipated 375 million barrels would be used through the end of the year.
That level of demand means more and more oil companies will seek alternative water strategies and more water-sourcing companies will seek to provide them, said Chris Robart, a partner with PacWest.
“It’ll continue to mature in the Permian Basin,” Robart said. “There is a lot of consolidation that is happening right now across all the service companies and pure-plays, as far as water transfer or water storage, who
want to go to market with a competitive service around water.”

The demand for frac sand continues! “Most customers are pumping as much as they can,” said Iain McIntosh, vice president at Baker Hughes. The company had seen the use of sand, or proppant, double, McIntosh said.
Another service firm operating in the Marcellus area, Weatherford, “had
seen proppant volumes shoot up 50 per cent in the first quarter of 2014,” its director of strategic marketing for pressure pumping Robert Fulks said.
“Texas-based market intelligence firm PacWest Consulting Partners says the Marcellus will require more than 13 billion pounds (5.9 billion kg) of frack sand in 2014, up from 9.6 billion pounds (4.35
billion kg) in 2013. In 2015, that’s expected to increase to nearly 15.8 billion pounds.”
