Message from the Program Chairpersons
We are pleased to invite you to the SPE Liquids-Rich Basins Conference—North America. This conference will be held at The Petroleum Club in Midland, Texas, USA on 13–14 September 2017.
Liquids-rich basins development has become the forefront of the oil and gas industry over the past several years, primarily spurred by the decline of natural gas prices. The depressed commodity pricing has created a harsh operating environment which has challenged our industry to find innovative, creative ways to remain competitive. A new way of operating and decision-making is emerging, one that highlights data management and advanced field automation. Operators have also been able to capitalize on the slower pace, putting focus on field development with the investigation of well performance as it relates to the technology and methodology used.
This conference is devoted to presenting the new advances in technology, operations, and best practices. There will be opportunities to hear presentations from formal paper authors, as well as invited speaker presentations. Topics will focus on asset development and operations practices, as well as the implementation of economic strategies involving survivability and positioning for the eventual economic upturn.
We will be seeing you at the conference in September!
