The annual SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference took place 4–6 February 2013, in The Woodlands, Texas, USA. Over 1900 attendees took part in the conference that presented 52 papers on topics ranging from fracture diagnostics to microseismic to fracture conductivity. All papers are now available on onepetro.org.
The exhibit floor was expanded from the 2012 conference and over 75 companies participated in displaying their products and services. This conference has been one of the fastest growing that SPE hosts, starting in 2007 with just a couple hundred participants and plans are already being made for 2014.
