You will have the opportunity to improve your understanding and find new ideas about productivity, efficiency, cost-effectiveness, safety, and technology of Lift and Flow systems in some of the most challenging and promising offshore fields of the world.

From authors in oil and service companies, research centers, and academic institutions; the committee received an impressively wide variety of quality paper proposals for this year’s conference. From these proposals, we selected approximately 78 papers for presentation.

We will gather technical and business-oriented perspectives to support the increased need for integrated solutions aimed at developing and producing resources, with minimal environmental impacts and maximum social benefits.

The program will feature a combination of keynote addresses and technical papers. A plenary session by leading experts will be followed by two days of technical sessions outlining proven technologies. Select training courses will precede the event.

We will be covering topics such as the latest artificial lift methods, and innovative and emerging technologies; the integration of lift systems with offshore fields, mature fields, and challenging reservoirs; issues of design, well completion, monitoring, remote control, automation, and optimization; and others, which you will find on our website:

Be a part of this remarkable SPE conference, the ideal venue to showcase your company’s latest technological accomplishments, products, and services. Network with local and international experts to sharpen your business strategy and advance toward your goals.

We look forward to meeting you and your colleagues in the picturesque and cheerful city of Salvador.
