PWS Seminar 2016: Jan 26-28 - Omni Westside - Houston
Strategies and Options for Water Treatment in a Low Dollar Environment
The theme of this meeting will be reducing the cost of operations. Best Practices, new technology, and strategies for reducing the manpower requirements, chemical costs, downtime of operations, service costs will be presented covering developments for onshore and offshore facilities and conventional and unconventional operations. On the final day of the seminar, there will be a Best Practices Workshop that will involve presentations and open discussion with industry leaders.

Produced Water Handling and Technology
Whether you're new to produced water treatment or just in need of a refresher, this course provides a fundamental understanding of the science and practical applications of water treating and presents the primary mechanisms behind various water treating equipment and processes. Attendees will receive practical knowledge sourced from experience at dozens of water treating facilities from around the globe.
You should expect to receive real-world training that analyzes and explains field equipment in terms of surface science, chemistry, and engineering principles that is grounded in science but is easily understood with little prior study, and can be immediately implemented in the field.
The course seminar will cover the following topics:
• Characterization of oil/water/gas for treatment
• Equipment selection and performance
• Process engineering and process line-ups
• Chemical treating
• Operations, monitoring, surveillance & troubleshooting
Lessons learned and best practices are presented from all major hydrocarbon production regions, including both onshore and offshore systems, as well as water treating for injection disposal, water flood, polymer make-up and flooding, steam flooding, and hydraulic fracturing.
THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR ANYONE LOOKING TO:
• Improve your upstream marketability
• Broaden your knowledge base on the subject
• Bring your team up to speed
• Get firsthand information straight from highly experienced industry professionals
Don't miss a chance to learn from some of the best minds in produced water with more than 40 years of combined experience in the Gulf of Mexico, the North Sea, the Middle East and North Africa, and South Asia. Stick around afterward for the Young Professionals Reception.
Cost Control in Water Management - Shale Developments Workshop
While the traditional PWS Seminar has seen 3 full days of presentations, this year's event seeks to adapt with the market. The third day of the seminar will host our workshop for shale developments, which will have presentations on best practices and an open discussion from industry leaders and focus on water management in the shale plays in a low dollar environment.
Some key issues for discussion will be:
• Sourcing, transporting and storing water in arid regions
• Treating, recycling and disposing of flowback water in tightly regulated regions
• Surveying options for technology, cost/benefit analysis, drawbacks, piloting and selection of technology
• Transition from mobile, modular and centralized treatment systems.
The workshop will have a summary of best practices followed by an industry leaders workshop. Don't miss out.
