Message from the Program Committee Chairperson
On behalf of the program committee, I am pleased to announce that the SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference will be held 5–7 February 2019 in The Woodlands, Texas, USA.
The conference will showcase both existing and new hydraulic fracturing technologies, based on experiences from hydraulic fracturing operations in conventional and unconventional formations across the world.
A plenary session will be featured and a Legend of Hydraulic Fracturing Award will be presented. The technical sessions will consist of session-focused paper presentations.
Areas of special interest for the 2019 conference will include the latest developments in fracturing applications, such as lateral length, fracture density and tools/techniques/materials; as well as fracture surveillance and interpretation. The program will also address economic optimization in fracturing, as well as regulatory impact and environmental footprint of fracturing operations.
The program committee will request abstract submissions to help develop the technical program. Details on the Call for Papers process will be available on this page in February 2018.
Please plan to attend the conference and mark your calendar now for 5–7 February 2019.
Martin Rylance, Chairperson
