Manage frac water availability

Asset team members need access to an accurate and timely integrated upstream schedule to improve collaboration and hit operational efficiency targets. DSO/CX incorporates comprehensive schedule visualization and reporting capabilities, including GIS mapping, so that upstream team members can view the optimized schedule in a way that makes sense to them.

DSO/CX is a web-based application that eliminates the need for multiple, inconsistent spreadsheets or PDF reports, which may not reflect the most up-to-date schedule. Accessible from a desktop, tablet, or smart phone, DSO/CX significantly improves efficiency, collaboration and mobility, providing up to-the-minute upstream schedule information anywhere, any time.

Optimize Water Use

Monitor actual volumes taken from each water source, and adjust subsequent water acquisition to take advantage of available volumes and permitted draws, at minimum cost.

Handle Contingencies

If the frac schedule changes, you may need to reschedule water access for a new time period. Easily adjust your water acquisition events and quickly determine the impact on costs and equipment.

Reduce Frac Water Costs

Reduce overall water costs by using the closest, cheapest sources, to minimize costs of bringing the frac water to a site.

Track Frac Water Use for Regulatory Purposes

Calculate actual water volumes by well, site, or geographic area. Produce compliance reports in minutes to satisfy regulatory requirements.

Match Demand with Supply

Match demand with supply by re-scheduling activities earlier, if necessary. Optimize the schedule to use cheaper frac water resources whenever possible.

Minimize Production Disruptions

The frac crew is all set, but your water permits do not take effect for another two months. Avoid this situation using DSO/H2O to match permit availability and draws with optimized frac rig scheduling.
