GE Power & Water Water & Process Technologies Water Treatment Solutions for Unconventional Gas Addressing Today’s Challenges Today, corporations, individuals and governmental bodies alike are focused on energy issues—and rightly so. According to the International Energy Agency, by 2030 the world’s energy demand is estimated to be 40 percent more than in 2007, with China and India accounting for more than half of that increase. At the same time, countries are seeking ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The prospects of natural gas are powerful. Unconventional gas sources—shale and tight gas, and coal seam gas are among the three most viable today—and innovative drilling methods are making up an increasingly larger percent of the supply picture for a renewable energy future. The opportunities are great and so are the challenges. While the severity varies with geography, water scarcity and wastewater quality are critical issues for the shale and tight gas production industry. Meanwhile, the regulatory climate and environmental policies are evolving rapidly and differ widely by city, state and country. Yet, the need for economically viable and environmentally sound solutions is urgent and industry-wide. Unconventional Gas Solutions We understand the challenges and recognize the opportunities of today’s unconventional gas industry. With ever increasing regulatory, environmental and financial pressures to survive and thrive in today’s unconventional gas industry, GE provides innovations in chemical and equipment technology to enhance efficiencies while safeguarding natural resources and saving money. Our effective, cost-efficient methods treat and supply the millions of gallons of water needed for shale and tight gas production. • Frac water treatment technology determines pretreatment requirements and optimizes recovered water composition and beneficial use byproducts. • Salt removal and recovery offerings combine physical separation and chemistry optimization to reduce the total operating cost of salt water disposal well operations. • Discharge water management and reuse provides integrated solutions for water recovery treatment and recycling. • Thermal products group of brine concentrators and crystallizers combines expertise related to zero liquid discharge and pure salt production. • Thermal mobile solutions can operate in multiple shales and are designed to handle flowback and produced water. • The mobile water fleet—the largest in the world—meets demand for on-site water treatments through emergency, short-term leases and long-term outsourcing. • Complete range of membrane and filtration technologies provide influent treatment of a diverse variety of non potable water sources. • Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) systems offer extensive experience in evaporation and crystallization to eliminate wastewater discharge and can enable the recovery of valuable byproducts. • Chemical solutions—including boiler, cooling, industrial and hydrocarbon process chemicals and monitoring—optimize plant productivity and water systems while safeguarding assets and ensuring environmental protection. • Range of biological filtration and coagulation technologies enable heavy metal removal to improve wastewater quality. • Water treatment provides deposit and corrosion control.

Shale Gas/Tight Gas Pilot Studies Water Reuse GE Reduces Water Solids by 95 Percent, Improves Productivity and Saves Money A North American gas producer was challenged with increasing solids accumulating in water storage tanks, increasing the frequency of service and elevating chemical costs with the need for additional biocides, scale and corrosion inhibitors to the brine water. To address the gas producer’s issues and help remove the suspended solids from salt water going to deep well injection, GE imp
