2. Galdeano, Carlos. Energy and water nexus : water management framework for the development of shale resources in Mexico.

Degree: PhD, Civil Engineering, 2018, University of Texas – Austin

Mexico is going through a historical moment due to eleven national structural reforms, including an energy reform approved in December 2013. This reform is expected to intensify production and other activities along the energy supply chain. Due to the relationship and dependency of energy and water systems, it is important to understand the impacts on water resources derived from the prospective increase on energy projects. In particular, an increase in water usage in water stressed areas could come from the expected development of shale resources through the combination of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling (HF). The main goal of this research is to develop a framework to assist assessments of the current water available for HF in Mexico, and to analyze potential strategies that could increase the water availability to include HF users in Northern Mexico. The methodology conducted included (1) a spatial multilayer analysis that overlays the water availability in the watersheds and aquifers with the shale resources areas, (2) a decline curve analysis that estimates the potential produced water from HF users that could be reused to develop more shale resources, and (3) case studies that evaluate the potential increase in water availability for HF users due to a technology shift of current users (e.g. power plants and irrigation districts), including an estimation of the water prices required to offset the costs implied on these shifts. Results suggest the following: 1) Between 8 and 70 Quadrillion British thermal units (Quads) of energy in the typical 20-30 year lifetime of the HF wells could be supplied with the average annual water available in aquifers and watersheds overlaying the 5 prospective shale basins in Mexico (e.g. Burgos, Sabinas, Tampico, Tuxpan, and Veracruz). However, geographic variation in water availability could represent a challenge for extracting the shale reserves. Most of the available water is located closer to the Gulf of Mexico, but the areas with the larger recoverable shale reserves (e.g. Burgos and Sabinas basins) coincide with less water availability in Northern Mexico. 2) The potential produced water from HF activity in three prospective areas analyzed in Northern Mexico, could be reused to extract around 0.02 to 0.06 and 0.04 to 0.1 Quads of energy in the overlaying oil and dry gas areas in the Burgos Basin throughout a 20-year period. This energy would represent from 0.4% to 1% and 0.01% to 0.03% of the recoverable resources in these areas. 3) Shifting the technology of two coal red power plants (CPPs) to natural gas combined cycle (NGCC) in Northern Mexico would save enough water annually to supply HF wells that could extract between 0.7 and 1.2 Quads in a 20-year period, which would represent between 11% and 18% of the recoverable resources of the overlaying shale area. The water prices required to offset the technology shift of the CPPs would range between 1.3 and 6.3 USD/m³, which is similar to the price that HF users have paid in the Texas' Eagle Ford Shale (on… Advisors/Committee Members: Webber, Michael E., 1971- (advisor), McKinney, Daene C (committee member), Passalacqua, Paola (committee member), Werth, Charles J (committee member), Olmstead, Sheila M (committee member).

3. Gryger, Sean Michael. Geologic framework of the Sierra Mojada mining district, Coahuila, Mexico : an integrative study of a Mesozoic platform-basin margin.

Degree: MSin Geological Sciences, Geological Sciences, 2010, University of Texas – Austin

The geology of the Sierra Mojada silver-lead-zinc mining district gives new insights into the stratigraphic evolution of the Coahuila Block and the Coahuila Folded Belt and the history of deformation along the basement-rooted San Marcos Fault Zone. Sierra Mojada provides the opportunity for substantial data collection relevant to the interaction of regional tectono-stratigraphic elements in a generally data-poor region of northeastern Mexico. Active mineral exploration has produced an extensive database of closely spaced drill core. Expansive underground workings facilitate subsurface geologic mapping. Sierra Mojada is situated at the northwestern edge of two tectono-stratigraphic provinces, the Coahuila Block, to the south, and the Coahuila Folded Belt, to the north. The San Marcos Fault, a west-northwest-trending regional structure extends through Sierra Mojada and is the informal boundary between these two provinces. Sierra Mojada is situated on uplifted and deformed late Paleozoic Ouachita siliciclastic strata intruded by Triassic diorites. This basement is diagnostic of the Coahuila Block. Basement rocks are overlain by an immature conglomerate that is interpreted to be the updip equivalent of the Jurassic La Casita Formation. The stratigraphy of Sierra Mojada principally consists of a continuous succession of Barremian through Albian carbonates unconformably overlying the basal conglomerate. The Barremian-Aptian Cupido Formation locally records deepening conditions from a clastic-influenced evaporitic interior to high energy, open water conditions. The shale and lime mudstone of the La Pena Formation were deposited during a Gulf-wide transgression that signals the end of the Aptian. The Sierra Mojada region of the Coahuila Block was inundated throughout the Aptian and was affected by the late Aptian transgression. The Albian Aurora Formation constitutes the bulk of the Cretaceous section. Sierra Mojada exposes the Aurora shelf rim, progressing from platform margin to shelf rim and platform interior facies. The structural features of Sierra Mojada affect the entire Cretaceous section. The high angle San Marcos Fault was reactivated with reverse motion during the Paleogene as a result of Laramide shortening. This juxtaposed basement and Jurassic conglomerate against the Cretaceous carbonates consistent with offset observed along the southern trace of the San Marcos Fault. A local colluvial unit suggests a lag in Laramide deformation. The carbonate strata and colluvial unit were overridden by a low angle, northeast-dipping thrust fault that placed a Neocomian through Aptian sequence atop the autochthonous Aptian-Albian carbonates. The allochthonous San Marcos Formation suggests regional-scale tectonic transport of this immature fluvial conglomerate from a downdip depozone within the Sabinas Basin. Kinematic indicators are consistent with the southwest-northeast axis for maximum compression established for Paleogene shortening throughout the Coahuila Folded Belt. The thrust fault bisects the principal ore zone… Advisors/Committee Members: Kyle, J. Richard (advisor), Kerans, Charles (committee member), Lawton, Timothy F. (committee member).
