Groundwater and Hydrocarbon Production in Brazil

Débora dos Santos Carvalho, José Aquiles Grimoni, and Miguel Morales Udaeta

Abstract—Resources are limited and new forms of exploitation of energy resources, such as hydraulic fracturing, tend to enter the country. This study analyses the nexus water-energy regarding to the exploitation of oil and gas from the continent by the hydraulic fracking. The research will be of a theoretical and bibliographic genre, of an applied nature, with the objective of proposing a mixed qualitative-quantitative approach to the issues of increasing energy security and increasing water security. It aims also about the shale gas extraction in Brazil and its challenges. As result of this discussion is that the unconventional sources of obtain energy can impact the hydro security specially the groundwater.

Index Terms—Energetic security, fracking, hydro-security, groundwater, water-energy-nexus.
