Resource Revolution: The Energy/Water Nexus in Oil & Gas

Conference // Resource Revolution: The Energy/Water Nexus in Oil & Gas

The dynamic transformation of the global oil and gas sectors continues to present unprecedented opportunities - and significant challenges. Within its lifetime, an unconventional well may use up to 13 million gallons of water and, while this was once a drop in the ocean in comparison to North America's abundant freshwater sources, today, it's crippling.

Power, Promise and Peril: Policy and Regulation in Oil & Gas

50 minutes moderated panel discussion; 10 minutes audience Q&A

With shifting global supply, energy innovations and emerging technologies, large financial implications and market fluctuations, and the rising influence of geo-political issues, oil and gas companies must remain committed to being at the forefront of innovation in exploration and production. This commitment, however, depends largely on water — and industry-friendly policy and legislation and other government-regulated rules from the U.S. and abroad. How can industry and government work together to advance the potential of our water/energy future?
