Before taking on his current role as president and CEO of Waterbridge Resources, John Durand was commercial lead on negotiations for Pioneer Water Management in 2014 when the company made a deal to purchase municipal effluent—city wastewater—from the cities of Midland and Odessa and put it to work for its operations in the Permian Basin. It was an example of water management in the midstream sector at work.

At Hart Energy’s recently-held Midstream Texas conference and exhibition, Durand joined David Finan, partner at EIV Capital; and Porter Bennett, co-founder and CEO of B3, a subsidiary of Ponderosa Advisors; to discuss the current state of water in the midstream.
