Oilfield Water Weekly

As a regular reader of this newsletter we have a special sneak peek in store for you today. đź‘€

Next Monday, we will press release the agenda announcement for the highly anticipated May 8-9 Oilfield Water Markets Conference (now just 55 days away). But today is “shadow-release” day for our friends and contacts. We have just posted the topic agenda for the conference on the website here. If you want to get an exclusive first look before everyone else, hit the conference page…

Panel speakers will be added to the sessions over the next couple weeks, and topics and moderators are shown now. Some produced water execs we are talking with about the event expect this to be the best conference the industry has ever seen for business leaders in the sector (we think you agree when you see how well it’s coming together)!

If you have already registered to attend or sponsor, thank you for your participation.  If you haven’t yet, just a friendly reminder that early-bird registration rates are only available through the end of March and the best sponsorship options are going fast… you don’t want to miss this! Details here>
