Locke Lord recently hosted in our Houston office a program titled “Produced Water Disposal – The Next Big Wave in E&P” as part of its High Noon Knowledge Series.  Disposing of water used in oil and gas operations is one of the biggest challenges facing energy companies today.  Our firm panelists touched on several important topics, including title to the produced water, transportation and disposal alternatives, the future of recycling produced water and various environmental considerations.  A copy of the presentation can be found here.  Numerous companies are working to solve the challenges of produced water and they will look to the private and public markets to raise the significant amounts of capital necessary to build water disposal infrastructure and develop new technologies.  Locke Lord will continue to work with our firm clients and friends to help source and execute capital markets opportunities in the water industry.  If you have any questions about produced water disposal issues or capital markets opportunities, please contact us.
