About this Workshop


The interest in horizontal well completions in Russia is growing rapidly! The objective of this SPE Workshop is to capture the knowledge from our local experts in order to enrich everyone’s understanding on how to successfully design a completion for a horizontal well. The sessions at the Workshop will cover everything from designing, modeling and monitoring hydraulic fractures in a horizontal well to the challenges operators have faced and the solutions they found to help them become successful. The Workshop will dive in to the details of each part of a horizontal well completion from the initial stimulation design to optimizing production. The attendees can expect to see new technologies, unique design concepts, and horizontal well completion best practices for achieving success and be able to take away new ideas for horizontal well design and optimization.
