SPE/WIA Well Abandonment and Integrity Workshop 18 - 19 Sep 2018 The Metropolitan Centre Calgary, Alberta, Canada

About the Workshop

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. In order to stimulate frank discussion, no proceedings are published and members of the press are 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. 

In keeping with the workshop objectives and the SPE mission, commercialism in presentations will not be permitted. Company logos must be limited to the title slide and used only to indicate the affiliation of the presenter.
