Produced Water Society Seminar 2020

The Produced Water Society is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its Annual Seminar. As the longest running technical conference fully dedicated to produced water, PWS couldn’t be prouder of the contributions its members have made to water operations in the industry, or more excited about the years ahead. As international focus shifts to the Permian Basin and other unconventional plays, budgets and management concerns follow. But production in geologies around world will continue to increase, and the issues faced in conventional and offshore operations are no less in need of the solutions and expertise of the produced water community.

That is why the 30th Annual Seminar will address diverse geologies from operations around the world. We’re calling for abstracts from around the world addressing produced water issues in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Gulf of Mexico, the Middle East, the North Sea, South Asia, as well as in the US and anywhere else your work has taken you. We hope that by bringing water professionals together from diverse regions, people will learn new lessons from the experience of others. The Produced Water Society knows that water is cooperative, and we stand by our core values, which include the belief that by sharing technical experience, the entire industry thrives as a result.

The PWS Seminar 2019 Recap

The Produced Water Society is a collection of oil and gas professionals with the common mission to improve the management and disposition of produced water. Through the discussion of best practices and the presentation of advanced solutions to dynamic obstacles, PWS fosters an environment where water professionals learn from one another in an open setting and where the entire industry thrives as a result.

The 29th Produced Water Society Seminar was held February 5th to 7th in Sugar Land, Texas, welcoming 400 produced water professionals for two days of focused technical discussion and networking. The Seminar featured breakthrough technical presentations, panel discussions featuring operators and service providers, round tables sessions, and two tracks—one for conventional onshore and offshore production issues and one dedicated to the booming activity in shale plays across the US. The Seminar gathered innovations from solutions providers, insights and forecasts from operating companies to create an environment focused on improving the future of the industry through better water management.
