Issue #18 | Can’t Miss Keynote

Oilfield Water Weekly

Wednesday August 7, 2019

Just hours after last week’s big Solaris Water Midstream deal splashed across the newswires, we were honored to officially announce the company’s CEO as our next Keynote Speaker.

Solaris CEO Bill Zartler’s remarks will open the “Oilfield Water Industry Update Conference,” which is fast approaching on October 4, 2019. 

This timely address from one of the water midstream industry’s foremost leaders is just one of the many reasons why this conference will be a can’t miss event. Our actionable October 4 agenda will keep you at the edge of your seat with discussions that really matter for business folks all day.

We hope you’ll make plans to join us on October 4 in the prestigious Houston Petroleum Club to network and hear the latest perspectives of Bill Zartler and the rest of our star-studded speaker lineup. The hotel block is now open at the Hyatt across the street from the venue with a limited inventory of discounted rooms. This will be a great day of discussion about the business trends and opportunities surrounding the oilfield water molecule, and we look forward to seeing you there.

And now the top oilfield water business headlines of the week… where water earnings report takeaways and dealmaking news are the themes de jour…
