Operators are expected to use more reused and recycled water at hydraulic fracturing jobs in Texas in the coming years as they deal with ever-increasing produced water volumes, according to a new report from an industry group.

Data on the use of water reuse in oil and gas operations can be hard to certify and varies from operator to operator and basin to basin, according to the report from the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers.

"Data on current produced water recycling volumes in Texas are not compiled and reported publicly; up-to-date data are hard to come by," the Alliance said in the report.
