SPE Workshop: Shale Development Optimization-The Quest for Efficiency and Profitability 8 - 10 May 2018 Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort San Antonio, Texas, USA

About the Workshop

Why Attend

Great strides have been taken toward achieving economic shale and tight oil development in the new commodity price environment. Nevertheless, market forces, decline rates, and the desire to eventually develop less-prolific plays and non-core acreage ensure that we remain focused on delivering greater productivity and superior ultimate recovery at lower cost.

Whether you are evaluating undeveloped acreage, targeting a new bench within an established basin, optimizing full-field development, or contemplating infill drilling and EOR in a mature play, the SPE Shale Development Optimization workshop should be of interest to you.

The Setting

An SPE workshop is a multi-day event that fosters knowledge sharing in an intensive learning experience. It provides brief technical presentations followed by extensive Q&A and discussion.

Staged in an intimate setting, an SPE workshop brings together E&P professionals with common roles and challenges to share ideas that advance both technology and best practices. They provide an environment for frank, open discussion. Press is not invited to attend.

The workshop’s program committee members solicit presentations from top industry professionals. This ensures a robust technical program with presentations that are laser-focused on best practices, lessons learned, and case studies.
