Improving Hydraulic Fracturing with Reusing Produced Water

In the Marcellus, about 10% to 30% of the fluid used to fracture a well returns to the surface and is captured with produced gas. This fluid is called produced water. Today, a majority of major gas producers in the Marcellus are reusing this water for use in new wells. Reusing of produced water reduces demand for freshwater and reduces the need for disposal of waste water.
