Digital H20 has headquarters in Chicago, IL and uses machine learning software to develop an online platform for oilfield water management. The platform aims to change how energy companies manage water resources that are scarce. It also helps gas and oil producers optimize water logistics while planning an analyzing their current use. The technology can be used by private equity investors, oilfield service companies, and exploration and production operators.

Water management will only grow in importance, predicts Michael Chavez, director of business development for Digital H2O, a software company that maintains a water-focused database covering the Permian, Eagle Ford, Barnett, Marcellus and Bakken regions.
 
“In every region, we are seeing growing water intensity,” Chavez reports. “The volumes of water used to frac wells are increasing, which is resulting in more produced water during the flowback period. That is making the logistics of transporting water from the well site to disposal more complicated and

If you didn’t guess it from their name, Digital H2O is using tech to make water usage more efficient. However, their software is for a very specific purpose: water used in industrial processes. Water is a major resource in oil and gas production and refinement. One of it’s primary uses is for cooling. Digital H2O helps manage the usage of water better to reduce overall costs. They use a data aggregation technique and and data analysis to uncover new opportunities with water that’s still in cycle. It brings overhead down and makes better use of current resources.

Digital H2O, a digital oilfield water management solutions company, recently expanded its Water Asset Intelligence service into Pennsylvania. The platform saves oil and gas service providers and midstream and E&P companies money by giving them the tools they need to efficiently manage water production, transportation and disposal. The service offers strategic and competitive intelligence on water disposal and provides data on oil and gas production from drilled wells, including well characteristics and historical production.

The Permian Basin – which straddles Texas and New Mexico – accounts for the majority of the current drilling activity in the US, and observers agree that this is likely to be the epicentre of market recovery at current commodities prices. Over the past year, the number of active rigs in the Permian has doubled from 158 in March 2016 to 309 in March 2017. Data compiled by Digital H2O shows how produced water volumes are forecast to increase further in the Permian under the current $50/bbl pricing scenario (see chart, opposite page).

If crude prices, rig counts, and tight oil production demonstrate a stronger upward trend in the months to come, US shale operators may find themselves with more produced water than they bargained for.

As a savant entrepreneur with two decades of strategy and management experience in the IT and energy industries, Piers Wells was determined about creating innovative solutions to business problems. "One of the challenges upstream producers face when reducing water related costs, is a lack of good information and the necessary visibility into the water asset landscape," begins Piers Wells, CEO at Digital H2O. The Chicago, IL based firm, Digital H2O was initially started to ease the problem for the upstream unconventional oil and gas industry.

The shale gale that rocketed out of the Barnett over a decade ago triggered a near instantaneous chain reaction of too many questions and too few answers. For the petroleum industry, keeping up with the demands for the iron, sand, water and man power necessary to free the deeply trapped oil and gas resources were significant. The loudly voiced cries from the public for more transparency in hydraulic fracturing intensified the challenge.
