Smart Water Management with Oklahoma OilfieldH20

Reading Time: 3 minutes

by Samantha Fox, Product Manager - Data and Consulting

In 2019, Oklahoma ranked as the fourth largest petroleum-producing state in the U.S., averaging 580 thousand barrels of crude oil and 8,700 million cubic feet of natural gas per day across approximately 1,500 wells. Data shows that approximately 1,000,000,000 (yes – 1 billion) barrels of water were disposed of in Oklahoma, ranging from over 690,000,000 in SWDs to more than 300,000,000 in commercial disposal wells. With current source and disposal costs at $1.09 per barrel, Oklahoma’s produced water created well over a one billion dollar market in 2019 alone.

That's a lot of water and a lot of money.

Actionable insights based on current data are necessary to make the most informed decisions about your operations and traditional methods include numerous barriers. State websites provide downloadable files but these records are often incomplete and Oklahoma’s state site only carries injection data through 2019. Additional information is locked in conventional reports, making data difficult to find and assemble. Aggregating the state’s data with your proprietary data to provide a full-scope understanding of the water situation presents another time-consuming challenge.
