This guide presents a systematic process for the onshore industry to select water sources that best meet project needs within the broader context of local or regional water management. The guide is applicable to both new projects and existing operations and uses case studies to provide practical examples of the process stages outlined. The document forms an integral part of Ipieca's 2013 Water Management Framework and complements existing Ipieca guidance on the Biofuels and water nexus (2012). Later in 2014 a further companion document will be launched on optimizing water use through efficiency.
