Our Approach

At ShaleUSA Conferences, we’re driven 100% by industry-intelligence. We don’t make contact with E&P operators and service companies assuming we have the answers. We simply pay attention to what our customers want, expect, need and value. We work with E&P and Midstream operators, technology and service providers to co-create learning and business development solutions that uncover the right questions and metrics that matter the most at any point in time, leading you to the right answers. The team behind ShaleUSA Conferences has over 25 combined years of experience organizing highly technical, content-driven conferences and business meetings in the North American Oil & Gas space.

ShaleUSA Conferences is the Unconventional Oil & Gas division of the global multinational media and events business, IQPC Ltd. Established in 1973 and headquartered in New York, IQPC now has 10 global offices in London, Singapore, Dubai, Doha, Berlin, Sydney, Miami, Tampa and Toronto.

July 28 & 29, 2020 – JW Marriot Downtown Houston, Texas

Markets have evolved and company structures have changed dramatically in recent months. Public companies have been splitting off and starting midstream companies; Wall Street has been pushing E&Ps to reduce debt and risk attached to non-productive assets - resulting in the recent wave of water midstream deals. Between January and August this year, there have been more than $2.5 billion of water-related mergers, acquisitions, private equity investments and other deals in the oilfield.

Recognizing the changing pace and priorities of the oilfield water marketplace, at Oilfield Water USA > invest & Manage 2020 big picture strategy development and technical water management converges, as the industry reaches a point where technical engineers have to become business persons, looking at both tactical as well as technical activities in the field. Join us in Houston in July to interact with the fully evolved oilfield water value chain including E&Ps, Water Midstream Companies, Technology Providers, Private Equity Firms, Investment Analysts and Regulatory Bodies.

February 10 & 11, 2021 – JW Marriot Downtown Houston, Texas

Addressing the US onshore operator’s most important production, operations and chemical-related challenges, the Reducing Onshore Well Failures: Advanced Chemical Management 2021 will focus on metrics that matter the most right now – failure rates/frequency, downtime, production losses and total overall spend on wells – and strategies & opportunities to manage failures induced by Corrosion, Scale, Paraffin, Iron Sulfide and H2S.

With companies forced to be a lot more disciplined on how they manage their cash, looking at their financial performance and not just how much oil they are producing, maximizing profitability and return to production cost (RTP) will be at the heart of all discussions.

The 2021 conference looks at a number of central themes, while expanding the envelope to include discussions in emerging areas for innovation and digitalization.
