Top water issues focus for Dubai summit
Dubai, April 3, 2013
Efficient water usage and technologies relating to wastewater in the oil and gas sector will form the agenda for the upcoming Global Water: Oil & Gas Summit in Dubai.
The second edition of the summit will be organised by the event provider CWC Group in partnership with the UAE Ministry of Environment & Water and the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy.
The two day Summit will take place on June 11 and 12 at the Madinat Jumeirah.
The summit will tackle two global issues critical to the Middle East region – energy production and water conservation.
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. As demand continues to increase, effective use of water - particularly in water-sparse areas such as the Middle East - is of the highest importance.
“We have created a platform for the water and oil and gas industries to be able to exchange information, ideas and collaboratively build sustainable solutions moving forward,” said Gurpreet Hayre, Global Water event producer.
“We have assembled an agenda of topics that are very pertinent to the region’s oil, gas and energy sectors, and focus on sustainable ways of maximising oil and gas production while seeking efficiencies in the use of water, which is one of the Middle East’s most precious resources.”
The Summit addresses key topics such as SMART water solutions, and water treatment technologies for enhanced oil recovery processes. It seeks to identify meaningful water usage efficiencies in maturing fields and heavy oil while presenting solutions for strategic water sourcing for oil and gas production.
“Our debut Summit in 2012 received very positive feedback, with attendees reporting substantial value gains. We are seeking to build upon this by creating a solutions-driven forum that can help assist with the global water challenge that is faced by the oil and gas industry,” Hayre added.
The summit provides a platform for government officials and senior representatives from across the water and oil and gas industries to discuss best practices for boosting production through successful water strategies and how to maximise water usage whilst balancing environmental considerations. – TradeArabia News Service
