Water Management

Water is a precious natural resource, especially in South Texas.  Sanchez Energy is committed to being a responsible environmental and community steward, which means we are conscious of community water needs and continually work to reduce, reuse and recycle the water used in our operations.  While the volume of water required for shale development fluctuates with geologic variations, our operations generally require more than 4 million gallons per well.  While this number is large, it is relatively small compared to the amount of water continually required for municipal use, as well as the water needs for agriculture, ranching and for golf courses.
