A natural gas client was delving into a new shale play for the first time and had limited internal resources and knowledge of the state regulatory landscape. To add pressure, they were operating with an aggressive drilling and resource extraction schedule. To assist in getting their operations online quickly, the client needed heavy support to manage their water sourcing for well pads.
RETTEW’s expert staff with industry-specific knowledge and an in-depth understanding of natural gas operations provided the leadership the client needed for its freshwater management program. Our office, strategically located in the heart of the Utica Shale Play, allowed on-site, up-to-the-minute coordination of every detail needed to design water source infrastructure and follow the regulatory process. RETTEW’s team conducted water sourcing research by sampling for quality and gauging streams and planned out the freshwater management strategy for our client. Amidst the continually evolving frac schedule, our professionals proactively coordinated and supported freshwater identification, transfer, and storage. Our expertise resulted in the client not having to change their schedule to wait for their water needs.
