Dr. Jeffery Cline
Dr. Cline’s 28 year career in the E&P Industry has often focused on water-related research and management. His Ph.D. studies were on water/sediment chemistry. He has performed numerous water projects: water cycle and minimization in refinery and power plant settings, groundwater site assessments and remediation, produced water fate & effects studies offshore, enhanced oil recovery with surfactants, coalbed methane (CBM)-produced water management, produced water treatment and discharge and/or recycling, fracturing fluids management, and production treatment chemical applications.
Dr. Cline has served on numerous domestic and international committees involved with produced water management: treatment and discharge (WPC, OOC, API, SFT, E&P Forum, EPA), treatment with chemicals (API, OOC, E&P Forum), and fate/effects of produced water components (API). He has also worked with State (WY, TX) and Federal (EPA, BLM) regulatory agencies in regulatory development, compliance, and advocacy concerning produced water.
As a special employee of the Department of Energy (RPSEA program) he provided useful industry studies involving water in fracturing. He was the technical advisor on a $3MM RPSEA project for which a detailed report on water treatment technologies for CBM-produced water was developed. He performed a water cycle analysis (quantitative and qualitative) of the refinery and power plants of Jordan to cost effectively provide a reduction of 52% and 80% of the water being consumed respectively. For managing water from CBM production in Wyoming, he developed and implemented strategic environmental programs. Dr. Cline has given numerous technical presentations and published on aspects of produced water management in E&P operations. Dr. Cline currently has a technical paper in press with the GWPC, “The Reuse of Produced Water with Hydraulic Fracturing.”
