Summit focus on energy and water
Dubai, February 28, 2013
The second Global Water: Oil & Gas Summit 2013, taking place in Dubai in June, will tackle two global issues critical to this region – energy production and water conservation.
The summit will be held on June 11 and 12 at the Madinat Jumeirah, Majlis Al Salam, announced The CWC Group, UAE Ministry of Environment & Water and the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy.
Water plays a pivotal role in the production of oil and gas in the Middle East and the partnership between these industries is acknowledged as essential to meet the continually growing demand for oil and gas, said a statement.
As the demand continues to increase, the effective use of water - particularly in water-sparse areas such as the Middle East - is widely regarded to be of the highest importance.
Global Water event producer, Gurpreet Hayre, when speaking about the upcoming summit said: “We have created a platform for the water and oil and gas industries to be able to exchange information, ideas and together build sustainable solutions moving forward.”
Launched in 2012, Global Water was the first and only event of its kind to take place in the hub of the Middle East oil and gas industry. Hailed as thought-leading in its first year, the returning summit calls for government officials and senior representatives from across the water and oil and gas industries to attend and discuss best practices for boosting production through successful water strategies. The summit will also examine how to maximise water usage whilst balancing environmental considerations. – TradeArabia News Service
