SPE Workshop: Gas Well Deliquification 9 - 10 Nov 2017 Mercure Hotel Den Haag Central The Hague, The Netherlands

About the Workshop

The SPE Gas Well Deliquification workshop aims at improving and accelerating the development of techniques for late-life production of gas. This involves production or recovery losses due to liquid loading, water production and/or halite precipitation within depleted and tight gas fields. Attention is also given to topics such as ‘‘Data Management, Modelling and Optimization” and lessons learned from artificial lift in oil wells.

Finally, the workshop wants to promote interest for existing and new service providers to enter or increase their presence in the (European) market for gas well deliquification, water shut-off and halite remediation.

The ultimate goal of the workshop is to increase awareness in the improvements in the deliquification methods and late-life production in general. This concerns hardware, field experience as well as new prediction methods.

The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is a not-for-profit professional association whose members are engaged in energy resources development and production. SPE serves more than 164,000 members in 143 countries worldwide. SPE is a key resource for technical knowledge related to the oil and gas exploration and production industry and provides services through its publications, events, training courses, and online resources at www.spe.org.

The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is a not-for-profit organization. Income from this event will be invested back into SPE to support many other Society programs. When you attend an SPE event, you help provide even more opportunities for industry professionals to enhance their technical and professional competence. Scholarships, certification, the Distinguished Lecturer program, and SPE's energy education program Energy4me are just a few examples of programs that are supported by SPE.
