Resumen: One of the challenges for the future of the shale gas production industry is the water management due to the large demand of water for wells drilling and fracturing and the high volumes of liquid effluent produced. On-site treatment is a convenient option for the reuse of the shale wastewater as drilling water for subsequent wells, which simultaneously reduces the freshwater consumption and the waste volume. While conventional desalination technologies are suitable for the treatment of flowback water, they are not appropriate for the hypersaline produced water, which is typically disposed into underground injection wells. In this work, we propose a mathematical model to address the optimal design of an on-site treatment for both flowback and produced waters, combining reverse and forward osmosis, to simultaneously minimize the freshwater consumption and the specific cost of the fracturing water. The results obtained show a clear trade-off between both objectives and highlight the potential of the proposed technology combination to give an environmentally friendly solution to the shale gas produced water.
