The SPE workshop included 20 technical presentations, a collaborative break-out session, and featured 2 keynote executives’ addresses from YPF and Panamerica. The goal was to provide the means to extend the life of mature oil fields far beyond previous technical and economic limits. See the comprehensive topics covered.

SPE Creates New Completions Technical Discipline

The SPE Board of Directors created a new Completions technical discipline in March 2016. This move honors the increased focus that completions technologies have gained in the recent past, while at the same time removing some of the ambiguity that has existed as to where certain technical topics should be classified, i.e. either in Drilling & Completions or in Production & Operations. With the new line-up, there will be three technical disciplines to choose from: Drilling, Completions, and Production & Operations. Check out additional information such as latest technical papers, SPE Connect discussion highlights, and much more.
