Supply, Flowback, and Waste
Water Treatment Training Course
for Hydraulic Fracturing

Texas A&M - Kingsville University (TAMUK) and Frac Water Engineering & Associates (FWE), a subsidiary of Refinery Water Engineering & Associates, Inc. (RWE), are proud to present the "first of its kind" training course for Hydraulic Fracturing operations. This new course is focused on an integrated approach to Total Water Management for the Frac-ing of Shale Gas and Shale Oil wells. Supply Water, Flowback Water, Wastewater, and Sludge treatment system designs, process controls, and economics will be covered in detail, and alternatives will be compared. An underlying theme of Water Recycling will predominate this entire course. Unique geographic considerations for treatment systems will be addressed for the following Shale Play regions: Marcellus, Permian, Eagle Ford, Bakken, and Monterrey. Transportation considerations, Regulatory procedures, Drilling & Recovery processes, and Legal liabilities will be presented.

This new FWE training course is designed upon the same standards of expertise and integrity as the highly acclaimed RWE Refinery & Petrochemical Wastewater Training Course. Our world renowned course professors, with a cumulative engineering experience of 250+ years in more than 900+ water projects, are also experienced as major U.S. university professors. This course provides certified TAMUK PDH Credits.

When: November 5 - 7, 2013, 8am to 10am.

Where: Kingsville, Texas at Texas A&M Kingsville University
