Oilfield Water Weekly

It’s a full house! Nearly 350 water midstream professionals are with us in Frisco, TX today and tomorrow for the Oilfield Water Markets conference.

Thank you to all of you reading that had to overcome travel chaos due to bad weather in order to be with us.

Produced water leaders at this event are in process of resetting the paused conversation in the oilfield water marketplace.

As the first conference back in this sector since the pandemic, it is so great to be getting back to normal – and attendees of this event are leading the way forward!

Here’s are a couple picture from the room this morning and from the well attended exhibit area.


Registration has been closed after the Oilfield Water Market Conference sold out once, was expanded, and sold out again. If you didn’t make it this time, we hope to see you at our next one (book early, all four events we’ve hosted so far have sold out in advance!)

Now here is this week’s water news…
