Produced Water Middle East

Following a successful conference in 2019 in Muscat, Oman, Produced Water Middle East returns in 2020 to Abu Dhabi!

As oil producers looked to increase their output from aging wells, and with capital expenditure on Produced Water projects expected to double in the next five years, it was more important than ever that professionals working within the region stay abreast of emerging trends, industry best practice, new technologies and approaches for produced water treatment.

The event combined keynote speeches, technical papers, and unrivaled networking opportunities for 200 industry members from across the world over 2 days of focused discussion of produced water opportunities in the region.
