Water Conservation in Shale Oil and Gas
Following Shell’s Onshore Operating Principles, which focus on safety, the environment, and communities, we strive to protect groundwater and reduce potable water use as reasonably practicable.
For each of our shale assets, we develop a tailor-made water management strategy for water sourcing, use, and disposal. For example, in our Groundbirch asset in Canada, we recycle produced water and also use recycled municipal wastewater.
