Water / Energy Nexus

The energy sector is transitioning, globally, because of a confluence of factors. These include the influence of upstream oil & gas, changing fuel sources for transportation (e.g., electric vehicles), and ongoing geopolitical volatility. Further, Coronavirus has completely disrupted the energy sector dynamics. As a result, the energy sector and associated water players face an altogether different competitive landscape. Learn More

Drought undercuts electric power production, globally, sounding alarm bells

Nevada’s Hoover Dam at Lake Mead, the largest U.S. reservoir, has reduced its generation capacity by 25% and hydropower has accounted for just 7% of the power generated in California, down from 13%. The water-related impacts are more widespread than just switching fuel supplies. >>Learn More

Strengthening upstream oil & gas sector bolsters midstream water outlook

The cost of gasoline has jumped from US$2 per gallon in 2020 to US$3 per gallon. As a result of growing demand, rig counts have increased 67% and associated midstream water management spend is poised to climb again beyond US$8 billion per annum. The result of rising energy prices will flow into the pump, thereby impacting supply changes and transportation costs going forward. >>Learn More

Upstream oil & gas attracts big projects, big companies

The last large-scale (>50,000 bpd) refinery was built in 1977. Since then, only 216,000 barrels per day in refining capacity have been added at 11 small-scale refineries. Slow pace of expansion, which stems from incremental capacity additions at existing petrochemical facilities, places greater emphasis on larger, more customized water treatment systems and capabilities. More than 50% of refinery water demand goes to cooling systems, while treatment demands are higher for boiler feed water and wastewater produced from refining processes. >>Learn More
