The North American Shale Water Management 2019 Exhibition and Conference is in Houston this week, Feb 28 – Mar 1, 2019, J. W. Marriott Galleria.  I attended the conference on Thursday and I was surprised at how much effort goes into shale water:  sources, destination, government reporting, treatment, storage, and disposal.  Here is a short topic list of presentations.


  • Overall water management
  • Treatment
  • Recycling
  • Risk Management
  • Big data


One of the things that caught my ear is how important it is to clean the water of bacteria.  Bacteria cause pipes to plug up, rust and corrode.  Companies are even doing genetic testing to make sure they are going after the right type of microorganism.

The conference ends today.
