A Message from the Program Chairperson
Join us for the SPE Artificial Lift Conference and Exhibition—Americas in The Woodlands from 28-30 August 2018.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Pushing the Limits of Artificial Lift.” The event seeks to establish a record of technologies and practices that are expanding the application range and reliability of artificial lift systems. This knowledge will be made available globally to industry professionals via OnePetro.
The conference will begin with panelists offering their own perspective on “Artificial Lift and Digital Oilfield.” I encourage attendees to share their own thoughts during that session’s question and answer period. At Tuesday’s Legends in Artificial Lift Awards luncheon, 2017 SPE President Janeen Judah of Chevron will recognize and honor five outstanding individuals for their technical contribution to the artificial lift community. The keynote luncheons on Wednesday and Thursday will feature speakers from both ConocoPhillips and Occidental Petroleum that you will not want to miss.
Remember to visit the sold-out exhibition featuring cutting-edge technology from leading companies around the world.
I would like to thank the program committee for their work in putting together this great technical program. The people that work in artificial lift are the best at coming together to share new ideas and lessons learned.
On behalf of the program committee, we look forward to seeing you in the Woodlands!
Greg Stephenson, Program Committee Chairperson
