IADC Lexicon Featured Term for August 2019

What does Water Supply mean? | Oil and Gas Terminology

The IADC Lexicon (IADCLexicon.org) is a compendium of upstream-related terms, which, unlike conventional glossaries, are official definitions drawn from legislation, regulation and regulatory guidance, standards (global, national and regional), and IADC guidelines. Terms often have multiple definitions from different sources.

This month’s Featured Term is:

“Water Supply” (Source:  Oil and Gas Wells, Pennsylvania Code, Title 25, Chapter 78, December 2012.):

Water supply—A supply of water for human consumption or use, or for agricultural, commercial, industrial or other legitimate beneficial uses.
