Calling all Speakers

The Argentina Shale Water Management & Frac Sand Logistics 2018 conference is seeking presentations that are broadly focused on the following key topics:

  • Shale water strategies and frac-sand market supplies
  • New rail loading, offloading, and transloading developments
  • Looking for low-cost solutions for shale water sourcing and treatment
  • Upcoming regulations and industry standards for shale water and proppants
  • Water management, proppant logistics, and last-mile transportation strategies
  • Case studies and trials for sourcing water and proppants to remote well sites

Argentina’s shale gas and tight oil production is set to join the ranks of the U.S and Canadian shale plays with its significant potential for exploiting unconventional reserves across the Neuquén and Golfo San Jorge basins, which is leading Argentina towards becoming a global shale oil and gas superpower. With this brings significant challenges for operators and the supply chain to find new ways of transporting shale water and frac sand efficiently and cost-effectively to shale wells across Argentina.


For shale water, the cost of water transfer, and the proximity of reservoirs to well sites located in the remote deserts will play a signifant role in establishing whether shale operations across the three major plays can be economically viable. Furthermore, new operators will enter a sub-$50 oil price market, and so new initiatives towards the most efficient and cost-effective water management solutions will need to be explored in order to remain profitable in a low margin business. Operators will require optimal performance and low-cost water management strategies in line with the latest regulations and environmental considerations in order to ensure long-term operational security for a ‘low-to-stay’ oil price market.


For proppants, market suppliers will need to look at utilising existing rail networks as a means of transporting frac sand supplies between markets and well sites across Argentina to reduce its current reliance on long haul trucking and to keep operational costs down. The supply chain will have to adopt new cost-cutting strategies and improve efficiencies across the board to enable proppant to reach well sites cost effectively and on time, in line with U.S competitors.


Be a part of our multi-disciplined agenda...

The Argentina Shale Water Management & Frac Sand Logistics 2018 conference will be an opportunity for all professionals engaged in relevant disciplines to report on their accomplishments and to exchange views. The event will have a unique emphasis on networking and building new relationships, including generating dialogue in technical know-how and to find new solutions for a new market. There will also be an opportunity to integrate with allied industries and to demonstrate an insight into new shale water management initiatives and proppant markets for mutual benefit.


Presentations which focus on the latest results and experiences in shale water management and proppant logistics, in particular, well-by-well case studies with new market data from past and current projects are of particular interest for this conference, along with other relevant topics of timely interest.


Please consider participating in what is certain to be a highly productive experience with an opportunity to collaborate with industry experts in this fast-developing market.
