“We have lined up the best and the brightest from across the industry,” says David Hill, publisher and executive editor of SPWM. “Until now, there has not been a national convention that gathers the top engineering and business experts and puts their fluid knowledge under one roof.” 

In addition to an opportunity to inspect and discuss the latest water transport, storage, recycling and disposal techniques and equipment, Shale Water Expo 2014 also offers special recognition of the oil and gas companies that are leading the way in creating sustainable water solutions. 

“With technology and techniques for managing produced water and flowback fluids driven by continuing stress on supplies and increasingly constricted disposal options,” says Marcus Oliver Gay, IHS research director for water and a member of the SPWM magazine editorial advisory board. “Industry must optimize the water value chain or face mounting resistance from both stakeholders and regulators. The Shale Water Expo 2014 provides a forum for these important discussions.”
