Title:
Will Water Issues Constrain Oil and Gas Production in the United States? 
Abstract:
The rapid growth in U.S. unconventional oil and gas has made energy more available and affordable globally but brought environmental concerns, especially related to water. We analyzed the water-related sustainability of energy extraction, focusing on: (a) meeting the rapidly rising water demand for hydraulic fracturing (HF) and (b) managing rapidly growing volumes of water co-produced with oil and gas (produced water, PW). We analyzed historical (2009–2017) HF water and PW volumes in ∼73 000 wel...    »
