SPE Workshop: Frontier Deepwater Development 26 - 27 Feb 2018 Sule Shangri-La Yangon, Myanmar

Thank you for attending the SPE Workshop.

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

One of the largest offshore gas fields in Asia Pacific, deepwater Myanmar is attracting widespread interest in the development of its gas prospects with new discoveries and drill-ready inventories. Together with other countries with deepwater capabilities in the region, Myanmar is on a transformational journey to elevate its expertise and understanding of the challenges of deepwater gas development.

With HSE and operational efficiency as a priority, industry players are now looking at ways to accomplish this goal by digitalising the approach to well planning and construction, and increasing the pace of collaboration and innovation in process, technology and techniques. By sharing lessons learned and best practices in the areas of field development planning, subsurface evaluation, drilling programmes, infrastructure and logistics, as well as increasing local authority awareness, this workshop provides a critical platform for technical education exchange and networking to support the fulfillment of the region’s aspiration.
