With increased activity in the Permian Basin in full swing, oilfield operators and service companies are facing significant growing pains. Companies working in West Texas, New Mexico and the rest of the oil patch are looking for ways to win in the face of aging infrastructure and a workforce that has seen its numbers dwindle in the downturn.
If you're looking for fresh ideas for making better business decisions and handling water management challenges in the Permian Basin, we recommend this year's American Business Conference Water Sourcing and Produced Water Management Permian Basin. The event is set for July 16 to 18 in Houston, Texas.
The impressive list of presenters from companies like Tetra Technologies, Gravity Oilfield Services, The Environmental Defense Fund and Solaris Midstream will cover topics related to the full water lifecycle – water sourcing, full-scale water treatment, recycling and reuse of produced water, automation and SCADA systems. The objective is to help companies increase operational efficiencies and reduce costs associated with these activities for years to come.
With an extensive list of E&P companies attending the event this year, oilfield service companies will get the opportunity to talk with operators about the produced water management challenges they are facing in the Permian Basin.

The event will be held in the heart of the international oil and gas community, in the Galleria area of Houston. According to the Greater Houston Partnership, approximately 4,600 energy-related firms have a presence in the Houston metropolitan area, including more than 500 exploration and production firms, 800 oilfield service companies, 90 pipeline transportation firms and hundreds of manufacturers and wholesalers of energy-sector products.
With such a concentration of oil and gas businesses in Houston, the Annual Water Sourcing and Produced Water Management Permian Basin conference will give oilfield businesses operating in the Permian Basin the chance to meet with clients, vendors and prospects with whom they may not typically get much face time.
Who Should Attend?
While the event will focus on the Permian Basin, its challenges are not unique to the region. Topics and discussions at this event will be relevant to any business associated with E&P operations and produced water.
Last year's Water Sourcing and Produced Water Management Permian Basin conference was a resounding success, gaining praise from attendees from field production engineers to vice presidents of operation. Valuable information will be shared at every level, and with the uncertainty around oil prices continuing for the foreseeable future, getting a leg up on your competition could mean the difference between expanding your operation and shutting the doors for good.
Several members of the SitePro team will be at this year's conference. We hope to see you there. If you can't make it this year, follow SitePro on Twitter, where we will be posting information from the speaker sessions and the exhibition floor.
