What Is The Produced Water Society?

The Produced Water Society is a 501 (c)(3) educational organization serving water professionals in the oil and gas industry. The mission of the 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.

Young Professionals

An integral part of the Produced Water Society‘s mission is to engage students and young professionals and help them acquire skills crucial for a successful career in the industry. Therefore, we are launching an initiative for young professionals in produced water.

If you are a graduate student (Master, PhD and Postdoc) or a young professional (aged 35 or under) with no more than 3 years of experience, you are eligible to register for a 12 month Produced Water Society membership for FREE.
