Competition for Water in U.S. Shale Energy Development

Ceres evaluated water use for 109,665 oil and gas wells that were hydraulically fractured over the past five years (January 2011 through January 2016) in regions with varying levels of water stress. Water stress is indicated by percentages that reflect the amount of available water that is already allocated for municipal, industrial and agricultural uses.
