The Produced Water Society’s 31st Annual Seminar will build on PWS’s long history of bringing produced water managers together in a collaborative setting to discuss both global and local issues impacting upstream water.
The theme this year, Produced Water Management in a Changing World, speaks to both the tumultuous year we’ve had as well as the changing tides of our industry and the future needs that we must address. It’s a transformative time in the world of water across the globe. Produced water is coming to the forefront and PWS continues to shape our knowledge base and opinions.
This year’s technical program will encompass the challenges and solutions in both conventional and unconventional produced water management, and will be supplemented with discussions on emerging advanced treatment and beneficial use as these topics rise in importance in our industry. The program will also include critical topics addressing economics and financing in midstream water.
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.
In 2020 the Produced Water Society Seminar celebrated its 30th Anniversary, welcoming over 300 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 three tracks—covering conventional onshore and offshore production issues, the activity in shale plays across the US, and issues across other geologies across the globe. The Seminar gathered innovations from solution providers, and insights and forecasts from operating companies, to create an environment focused on improving the future of the industry through better water management.
The mission of the Produced Water Society is to improve produced water management to the benefit of the environment and the industry by fostering dynamic discussions and opportunities for water professionals to learn from one another at our live events, luncheons, and growing online community.
The Produced Water Society holds technical events near key areas of production activity around the world. The aim of our seminars, conferences, and training events is to enhance the knowledge base and best practices in order to improve the overall management and understanding of water issues in the oil and gas industry. We do this by delivering highly relevant content and networking opportunities at our three annual events.

The work that the Produced Water Society is doing for the Water Midstream Space in Oil and Gas in the Permian is critical and contributes to the progress of the United States Energy Sector.
I attended Produced Water Society conference in Oman and it was of great value . The interaction between the IOCs / NOCs and the technology / OEM providers is what really distinguished the PWS event.
