The Gas Research Institute (GRI) has embarked on a multi-year program to conduct technology assessments of environmental control strategies in the natural gas production industry. This program builds on previous work which has been in progress over the past couple of years at GRI which conducted environmental impact assessments of this industry. The purpose of this paper is to present the initial approach which has been taken to analyze management strategies for produced waters from the natural gas industry.
