Quantity of flowback and produced waters from unconventional oil and gas exploration

Key findings: Estimated flowback and produced water volume from unconventional oil and gas wells is 1.7 to 14.3 million liters per well. Only a small fraction (4-8%) of the flowback and produced waters is composed of returned injected hydraulic fracturing fluids. The majority (92-96%) of flowback and produced waters is composed of naturally occurring formation …
