BlueTech® Research, in conjunction with B2B Webinars, would like to invite you to our upcoming interactive webinar on the changing landscape of the US conventional fossil fuel market.

Management of oilfield water and wastewater in the US is estimated to cost exploration and production companies (E&Ps) $38 billion by 2022. Analysis of the water management value chain identifies a highly disaggregated service sector that includes transportation, storage, treatment and disposal of fluids. Lowest cost and highest safety record are often the key criteria evaluated for a successful contract with US E&P companies.

Some E&Ps are illustrating behaviors that change the current operational paradigm by placing increased corporate awareness on water sustainability and stewardship above that of pure economics. For majority of the US produced water market, desalination of this fluid, for reuse in hydraulic fracturing programs, is not cost-advantaged today. Emerging technologies present an opportunity for reduction in the unit cost of desalination; however, a number of technologies and services threaten to replace the need for advanced water treatment in the unconventional oil and gas landscape today.

Future growth opportunity for cost-advantaged desalination will exist where produced water supply exceeds available reuse potential. This may be observed sooner in regions where regulatory pressure constrains disposal capacity and/or provide incentives for beneficial reuse outside of the energy sector.

Conferences in this industry have recently become no more than tradeshows, with B2B marketing and business development professionals positioning their products and services. This webinar, developed by BlueTech Research, will provide critical analysis and key insight into the oil and gas water management services industry. Modeled after Porters five forces analysis for competitive analysis, the speakers will each present a unique and disparate perspective on the industry. In a panel discussion, the speakers will explore the competitive intensity, the threat of new entrants, the threat of substitutes and the power of buyers and suppliers. This webinar will provide market, technology and business model intelligence critical to current and future business decisions in this industry. This webinar is a must-attend event for developers of water technology, investors in water management and purchasers of oilfield water services.

Questions to be answered:

  • What is the current competitive landscape of the unconventional fossil fuel market? How is the market expected to grow in the future?
  • In regards to US onshore produced water treatment, where are treatment types, including fit for use treatment and desalination, along the commercialization S-Curve? Are there any scales of economy optimized for water treatment?
  • What barriers to entry exist for water technology companies?
  • What types of emerging technologies threaten the market potential for water treatment?
  • How is the critical challenge of transparency of operational data around water resources being addressed?
  • Are more E&P companies addressing the need for sustainability in water use and wastewater disposal?
  • What is the cost benefit for E&Ps to develop a water management strategy? What metrics and approach would an E&P use to define this benefit?

Who should attend?

  • Investors involved with water management looking to understand the market opportunity in the US unconventional fossil fuel market.
  • Water industry executives looking to maintain (or establish) a competitive advantage and inform strategic moves in this growing market segment.
  • Water technology developers looking for technology gaps and unmet needs.
  • Oilfield water service purchasers looking to explore the future of the water and wastewater management
  • Consultants, policy makers and regulators looking to stay on top of the latest market trends and the state of technological innovation in the groundwater treatment market segment.

How It Works

The 90 minute session is interactive and you will be able to submit questions -live- to our esteemed speakers - via computer during the session. However, please note that since this is a discussion and not a formal presentation the only visual elements will be the information contained herein.
You will receive confirmation of your registration via email.
A separate email sent a (business) day before the webinar will include a toll free dial-in phone number and access code to dial into the seminar. It will also include the Internet address and login instructions to access the webinar.
At the time of the interactive session, you will call into the toll-free number via phone or speakerphone and log in to the special website. You will follow the presentation on the web; the Instructors will manage the timing and page changes of the presentation directly.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions at specified times during the presentation. All participants will be able to hear both the questions and answers.

Single Connection: $245.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $150.00

A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.

By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.

If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $150 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.

Should you be unable to attend, a refund, less a $50 administrative charge, will be made for cancellations received via letter or fax at least 3 working days before the event. We regret cancellations will not be accepted after that date. However, we will be pleased to transfer your registration to another member of your company or credit the registration fee to another Infocast conference if you register within 6 months from the date of this conference. In the event the conference is canceled, Infocast’s liability is limited to the refund of the conference registration fee only.
