Agenda Overview

The Oilfield Water Markets 2021 Conference is a large multi-day event dedicated entirely to marketplace issues in full-cycle oilfield water management. This event is 100% in person (no virtual component).

The agenda is topical and the speaker bona fides are beyond excellent (you can see both in the agenda below). Many of these speakers can only be heard here this year, and all are highly influential in this industry. Sponsors include the biggest and most highly respected firms in this business.

We are working hard to make this the finest event of the year for executives and investors in this fast-moving market. See you there!

Post-Conference Golf Outing

Topgolf Dallas | May 13, 2021

Rather than planning a traditional golf tournament, where 75% of the conference attendees do not participate, we have decided to make this Golf Outing much more accessible to all conference attendees (golfers or not!). After the close of the conference, we will make our way to Topgolf for 3 hours of networking, golf, food and beverages. Golfers can still get their swings in, but non-golfers can also enjoy everyone’s company in this fun environment. Please join us! You can sign up for the golf outing during the conference registration process.

$99 /per person

8787 Park Lane, Dallas, TX 75231
