Oilfield Water Weekly
Wednesday April 21, 2021
The countdown is on! There are only two weeks left until the 2021 Oilfield Water Markets Conference.
Less than 40 seats at the event are still available.
After a 1.5 year pause for in-person conferences, there is so much to discuss live and in-person with the rest of the industry this May 12-13 in Frisco.
This will be the best PW event of 2021 hands down, but you don’t have to take our word for it. Just listen to the:
- 300 expected attendees (over 265 seats spoken for in early registration)
- 57 confirmed speakers
- 42 confirmed sponsors
- Leading E&P Operators – decision makers will be there from many large E&Ps (large as in the biggest US producer large) and small E&Ps (as in savvy, nimble privately held operators that punch above their weight in water)
- Virtually every Water Midstream firm that has a pulse is sending senior executives to Frisco (and most of the top tier midstream firms are speaking and or sponsoring)
- Tons of great supporting firms that work in the space providing water technology / services, chems, solutions, recycling, pipe, hauling, consulting, legal, banking, data, etc. etc. etc. will be there
Your time is valuable. Don’t settle for anything less than the best event… and don’t wait to register or you might end up on the waiting list (capacity is limited due to social distancing and we will inevitably have to turn late-comers away). The water pros in attendance two weeks from now will be talking about this high quality tradeshow for the rest of the year…
Now here is this week’s water news…
