Press release from: The CWC Group

The two-day strategic networking event is set to examine water conservation solutions in the oil & gas industry

The CWC Group, a leading events company focused on energy and infrastructure issues, will hold its inaugural Global Water: Oil & Gas Summit on May 22 & 23 at the Mina A’Salam Hotel in Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai.

“This event combines two vital topics – energy production and water conservation, and we are proud to receive the Royal Patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Maktoum bin Juma Al Maktoum,” said H. Frederic Ponton, CWC Group’s Director of Government Relations – Middle East.

Under the theme “Water Solutions for the Oil & Gas Industry,” the summit will feature many of the oil and gas industry’s foremost experts as they examine best-practices and new technologies focused on water conservation and efficiency during energy production. The event will provide a platform for top-level industry executives to exchange innovative ideas and form strategic partnerships focused on water conservation.

“Energy production is a water-intensive process,” said Shane White, Senior Producer of CWC Group. “Water is a valuable resource and we’re exploring methods to use it more effectively, both from an environmental standpoint and as a means to save costs and boost production efficiency.”

The first day of the summit will kick-off with a session assessing new water treatment technologies, such as Forward Osmosis and Self-Contained Evaporation, which mitigate costs and improve production. The afternoon sessions will focus on successful water management models and methods for recycling water and reducing water usage footprints during oil and gas production.

The summit will continue on Wednesday with a session hosted by IDA dedicated to comparing the costs of various water treatment processes and highlighting the effectiveness of desalination in oil and gas operations throughout the Middle East and North Africa. The day’s events will continue with a session analysing water usage regulations affecting the oil and gas industry and how particularly water-intensive procedures, such as extracting oil from mature fields, can be efficiently managed. The summit will conclude with a session hosted by DOW Water & Process highlighting their innovative solutions for increasing the amount of crude oil that can be extracted from existing fields while managing limited water availability.

“We have brought together some of the industry’s leading experts,” said Shane White. “Our panels are comprised of senior-level representatives from companies such as Saudi Aramco, Shell International, ConocoPhillips and ENOC along with leading university academics, key government representatives and even experts from NASA. The summit will highlight best-practices for water usage in the oil and gas industry by using proven methods and featuring international case studies. Industry stakeholders from around the world will come away with a thorough understanding of the issues and proven solutions and useful contacts so they can move their operations forward. ”

The CWC Group has partnered with UAE Ministry of Environment & Water, Dubai’s Supreme Council of Energy and the Government of Dubai to organise the event and is receiving support from Global Water Intelligence, the International World Water Council, International Desalination Association and the Produced Water Society.

The CWC Group specialises in energy and infrastructure, developing knowledge, creating commercial opportunities and strategic solutions for government and industry by offering professional training, conferences and exhibitions.
