SPE Oil and Gas Facilities in Latin America: Monetizing Reserves
in Challenging Environments

23 – 24 April 2014

Lima, Peru | Swissotel Lima

About this Workshop


The last two decades of economic growth and investment have allowed the development of the Peruvian oil and gas industry with world-scale projects such as the Camisea Gas Field. With an estimated production of 1,200 MMSCF/day of natural gas, and exportation of 4.4 tons/year of LNG, these projects secured a spot for Peru among the top producing countries.

This workshop will focus on common challenges that oil and gas companies have to deal with in Peru and other countries throughout the region, in order to monetize reserves, and perform exploration and construction of facilities in complex environments and remote locations. It will include a unique combination of Peruvian experiences, technologies applied, and new challenges in continuing the development of the industry.

Focus and Objectives

The purpose of this workshop is to focus on common challenges that oil and gas companies have to deal in Peru and other countries in the region in order to monetize their reserves, perform exploration, and facility construction in complex environments.

This unique technical SPE workshop in Peru will facilitate a networking opportunity for professionals both within Peru and in countries with similar geography, infrastructure and environmental challenges.

The workshop is a limited attendance meeting and is designed for professionals in the oil and gas industry who are involved in planning, designing, executing, evaluating, and the decision making of project execution and construction of facilities.

Who Should Attend

The workshop targets oil and gas professionals whose primary job falls into any of the following categories:

  • Academia
  • Drilling engineering
  • Field development and operations
  • Production engineering
  • Natural gas production and transportation (including small and large LNG)
  • Offshore production
  • Facility engineering and construction


Workshop Guidelines

Workshops maximize the exchange of ideas among attendees and presenters through brief technical presentations followed by extended Q&A periods. Focused topics attract an informed audience eager to discuss issues critical to advancing both technology and best practices.

Many of the presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering achievements, and lessons learned. In order to stimulate frank discussion, no proceedings are published and members of the press are not invited to attend.


Proceedings from the workshop will not be published; therefore, formal papers and handouts are not requested of speakers or panel members. A URL containing released copies of the workshop presentations will be available to attendees following the workshop.


In remaining consistent with workshop objectives and SPE guidelines, commercialism in presentations will not be permitted. Company logos should be used only to indicate the affiliation of the presenter(s).

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

Attendees will receive 1.6 CEUs.

One CEU equals 10 contact hours of participation. CEUs will be awarded through SPE Professional Development for participation and completion of SPE workshop. A permanent record of a participant’s involvement and awarding of CEUs will be maintained by SPE.
