2020-2021 Distinguished Lecturers Ready to Visit Latin America

More than a dozen Distinguished Lecturers will be presenting across the region during next year. Attend a Distinguished Lecture near you to enhance your knowledge and grow professionally by hearing these experts in their fields.

Through the Lens of Complex Mexican Reservoirs

The key to optimizing production and recovery in mature fields is the consistent application of reservoir characterization tasks in conjunction with production operations and surveillance tasks. As global demand for oil continues to increase, we must focus on improving and extending the productive lives of mature fields.

Join the SPE Workshop: Reservoir Characterization of Mature Fields — The Mexican Connection on 20–21 April 2022 to evaluate current projects and technologies which can be deployed to improve production, recovery, cost-effectiveness and profitability.

An Integration of Knowledge on the Next Generation of FPSOs

Floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) platforms are ideal for Brazilian reservoirs, specifically deep pre-salt giant fields. With the expansion of FPSOs in the future, we’re sharing knowledge and bringing together professionals in diverse areas of expertise at the  SPE Brazil Section/SPE Macae Section: Brazil FPSO Symposium.

Register and join the technical roundtables on 24-25 May 2022 to discuss key challenges with FPSOs: contracting, digitalization, operational reliability, technology, and process safety and integrity.
