1 Integrated Service Offering Flowback / Produced Water Management Water Challenges in the Permian Basin STEVE HOUGHTON North America Operations Manager Oilfield Water Management M-I SWACO

2 Water Challenges in the PERMIAN BASIN Water Sourcing: Municipal Water wells: shallow and deep Ponds, Streams and Rivers AMD, waste waters Re-use/ Treatment Sea Water Environment: Concern about depletion of reservoirs Impacts the aquatic life Footprint Transportation: Number of trucks in the road 12,000 Bls = 100 trucks High tendency to pipe the system Water Storage: Use of ponds, impoundments, frac tanks Temporary and re-usable above ground tanks Regulations: Ultimate drivers for permits of water sourcing Dictate discharge criteria

3 Integrated Flowback Services: VALUE CHAIN Fracturing Operation Flowback Control Measurements Separations Sampling and characterization Fluid Management Normal Production Operations pressure rates Q g, Q o, Q w P wh, P c, T solids liquids water analysis rate of solids chemical analysis loading and hauling treatment/inhibition treatment/recycling separations treatment measurement characterization Standard Spread Wellhead Choke Sand buster Chemical Injection and Chemicals Liquid separators Vx or other multiphase flow meter Flare/Vent/Sales Line Line to Pit Lines to liquid storage Measurements (P, T, Qi) Flowback and Clean Up High conductivity fracs (minimize damage to wellbore and reservoir), increased Q Reduce HSE risks Automate pressure and flow control Lower $/boep Reduce standby and or NPT Better reservoir understanding Accurate measurements PVT quality samples Water analysis / prod treatment Fracturing Fluid Optimization Lower $/boep, increased Q Lower flowback op ex Improved clean up and less nuisance issues Better integration with facilities and production Improve efficiency of client engineer Water Treatment and Management Reduce water disposal cost Lower $/boep Fit for purpose and cost effective treatments for reuse/disposal Short term (mobile) Long term (permanent) Reduce environmental risks/liabilities Chemical conditioning prior to reuse Enhance corporate image by being green Water analysis / prod treatment

4 M-I SWACO PRODUCTION TESTING SERVICES Frac Flowback Services Frac Plug Drill Outs

5 Flowback CONVENTIONAL SETUP Sand traps / Debris Catcher Choke Manifold 2 or 3 phase Separators Gauge or Surge Tanks Flow piping (Up/Downstream)

6 Flagship Technologies AUTOCHOKE Innovative transition and application during drill out / flowback applications Near-constant bottom hole pressure control, prevents wellbore collapse Precision control for stripping pipe in and out of the hole Helps to avoid pressure-control incidents thru seamless choke size transitions Plugged debris at choke manifold causing hammering effect due to sudden pressure release Reduces fluid losses and NPT Mobile Remote unit can be placed anywhere for better communication drilling / flowback Digital readouts ensure that errors in pressure readings and pressure inputs are greatly reduced

7 Flagship Technologies DUAL PLUG CATCHER Reduces NPT by allowing critical path removal of debris and other solids during drill outs and flowbacks Upstream of choke manifold and sand filter to reduce plugging and wear / tear of choke beans (adj/fixed) Dual flow paths and bypass allows redundancy to ensure uptime during critical path.

8 Flagship Technologies VX PHASETESTER - MULTIPHASE FLOWMETER Pad applications for multi-well measurement(s) Accurate 3 phase measurement Ability to take insitu sampling (PhaseSampler) Oil and Gas Mode Algorithms Mobile or Permanent Installations Complete well profiling / trending Able to measure without separation from start of well cleanup period.

9 Water Returned for Reuse Produced Water M-I SWACO OILFIELD WATER MANAGEMENT M-I SWACO Water Treatment Technologies Filtration Chemical Mechanical Membranes Thermal Disposal/Water Flooding/ Steam Injection Discharge Clean Water Returned To Hydrologic Cycle Underground Storage Close Loop System 100% Recycle

10 Treatment Options FIT FOR PURPOSE Type 1 Technology: Mobile Total Suspended Solids (TSS) removal Disinfection Type 2 Technology: Mobile Removal of constituents as Ca, Mg, Ba, Sr, Fe (Reclamation) Type 3 Technology: Mobile Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) removal Type 4 Technology: Central facility with piping system close to produced water activity to treat water for re-use, disposal or discharge Low Mobile Treatment Specifications High High TYPE 1: TSS Removal Disinfection TYPE 2: Hardness Removal Ba, Sr Oil and Grease TYPE 3: TDS Removal (Desalination) Low Price/Bbl High TYPE 4: Central Facility + Conveyance System Mobile Treatment: Early Stage Shale Gas Play Model Central Facility: Produced Water Model

11 Filtration System: TYPE 1 TECHNOLOGY Operational Highlights Filtration of total suspended solids Solids removal to meet operators micron cut (100 to 0.5 microns) 99.9% water recover for reuse Inexpensive with all produced waters Process rate of 10 barrels/minute Low energy consumption 30 gallons of diesel per 24 hours Highly mobile 24 enclosed goose neck trailer pulled with M-I SWACO pickup truck No special permits required for transportation Rig site footprint requirement 35 x 12 Rig up time: 2 hours

12 Reclamation System: TYPE 2 TECHNOLOGY Chemical precipitation and filtration of heavy metals, hardness and total suspended solids (TSS) 99% water recover for reuse with TDS below 125K Inexpensive with all produced waters - price depends on specifications for reuse Low energy consumption 60 gallons of diesel per day Highly mobile transported by 18 wheeler trucks Rig site footprint requirement 120 x 120 Rigged up and treating fluid within 5 hours Adaptable to changes in feed water chemistry

13 Reverse Osmosis: TYPE 3 TECHNOLOGY Features: Remove TDS up to 40K TDS. Pre-treatment required 35-40% recovery drinking water quality Inexpensive with less than 40K TDS flow back & produced waters Low energy input required

14 Central Processing Facility: TYPE 4 TECHNOLOGY Central Water Treatment Facilities for large quantities of produced water Fit-for-purpose process design Design, construction, operation and maintenance project development
