SPE Liquids-Rich Basins Conference - North America 5 - 6 Sep 2018 The Petroleum Club Midland, Texas, USA

Message from the Program Committee Chairpersons

We are pleased to invite you to submit a paper proposal for the SPE Liquids-Rich Basins Conference–North America, taking place at The Petroleum Club in Midland, Texas on 5-6 September 2018.

North American liquids-rich basins have been resilient in years past with operators in these areas pushing the limits of exploiting the resources in these prolific basins. Innovation and technology are propelling the industry to new highs, specifically in the areas of hydraulic fracturing, data management, and automation. Wells are being drilled and completed at speeds that were inconceivable just a few years ago with the Permian and Anadarko basins leading the industry in efficiencies in exploration and production. The golden age of oil production in North American basins is here, fueled by the grit of the people who work them.

This conference will focus on key technologies and strategies driving positive results in liquids-rich basins across North America. We look forward to receiving proposals from various areas of the industry, including individuals working in engineering, operations, management, regulatory, and environmental. If you operate in any of the North American liquids-rich basins, we encourage you to share your knowledge and expertise.

Submit your paper proposal by 19 February and plan to attend the conference in September!
