Evolution of water chemistry during Marcellus Shale gas

2015-9-1  Walter et al. (1990) suggested that brines derived from seawater evaporation are enriched in bromide and can be distinguished from brines formed by dissolution of evaporites on the basis of ratios among Na, Cl, and Br. Late stage Marcellus Shale flowback share similar major ion chemistries with conventional gas well brines from the overlying and underlying Devonian formations and show similar

Marcellus Shale Play Water Treatment Options Worth

The first flow-back water has a salt content of only between 1,500 and 2,000 parts per million, but the longer the water remains in the Marcellus Shale, the saltier it becomes. By the end of the first week, the salt content can reach 45,000 parts per million. Sea water

Penn State webinar addresses Marcellus Shale water-policy

2021-2-1  Water is a necessary part of the process of extracting natural gas from the Marcellus Shale Formation, and Pennsylvania residents should concern themselves with the creation of public policies for managing and protecting water resources, according to a water-policy expert in Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences. Charles Abdalla, professor of agricultural and

Water for Fracking in Pennyslvania's Marcellus Shale

2016-3-31  Bluefield Research’s analysis of more than 8,000 well permits for hydraulic fracturing in Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale highlights the shifting trends in wastewater management & disposal since 2010. This Data Insight details wastewater treatment and the impact of a changing U.S. energy landscape undermined by low prices, higher winter temperatures, and high gas inventories.

Water quality of groundwater and stream base flow in the

The Marcellus Shale gas field underlies portions of New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, Maryland, Tennessee, and West Virginia. Development of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling technology led to extensive development of gas from the Marcellus Shale beginning about 2007. The need to identify and monitor changes in water-quality conditions related to development of the Marcellus

Geochemical and isotopic evolution of water produced from

2017-3-9  The question of whether the produced water originated within the Marcellus Shale, or whether it may have been drawn from adjacent reservoirs via fractures is addressed using measurements of Ra 228 / Ra 226 and Ra 226 activity. These parameters indicate that the water originated in the Marcellus Shale, and can be more broadly used to trace water
