While some analysts are projecting a 40% shortfall in water supply by 2030, the oil and gas industry is doing what it does best – innovate. “You’re seeing a lot of technology innovation – using less water, recycling, reusing water and collaborating with other partners – so that we do not have to follow that trajectory,” said Will Sarni, Director and Practice Leader of Enterprise Water Strategy Sustainability and Climate Change at Deloitte Consulting. Mr Sarni moderated a panel on water stewardship at the 2014 Deloitte Oil & Gas Conference in Houston on 18 November. He believes the energy industry has an opportunity to do more with less and also influence other industries to follow its lead.
