Thank you for attending the SPE Workshop.

Plan your attendance to other SPE events in your region or technical area.

The SPE Workshop: Performance and Design of Water Injectors Requiring Sand Control took place on 4-6 December 2017 in Austin, Texas. 

Water and produced water injectors with sustained high rate and high ultimate volume are critical for the economic success of many deepwater developments around the world. Injectors with different sand control completions are being installed in unconsolidated and loosely consolidated sand reservoirs with mixed success. The objective of the workshop is to discuss and share latest understanding, field performance, best practices, and advances from the industry and academia. Learn more >>
