SPE/ICoTA Workshop: Refracturing: A Valuable Technology for Today’s Market 5 - 6 Nov 2019 Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort San Antonio, Texas, USA

About the Workshop

Refracturing creates highly attractive opportunities to use existing wellbores for additional hydrocarbon recovery without having to drill a new well. Within a given field, the completion techniques typically evolve leaving many wells with stranded volumes of commercial hydrocarbons. Re-entry and re-stimulation is an approach that has been successful for many operators.

Refracturing parent wells has also become a valuable option for mitigating the negative impacts of fracturing interaction from infill wells or child wells. The potential for improving the performance of the infill well can result from addressing depleted reservoirs with refracturing applications.

This workshop creates a venue for attendees to engage with subject matter experts on a variety of technologies, well conditions and lessons learned. This workshop is an opportunity to network as well as to learn the newest developments.

Why Attend

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.

What You Receive

  • ​Attendees at the workshop qualify for 1.6 SPE Continuing Education Units (CEU).  One CEU equals 10 contact hours of participation. CEUs will be awarded through SPE Professional Development for participation and completion of SPE workshops. A permanent record of a participant's involvement  and CEUs obtained will be maintained by SPE.
  • ​Released copies of the workshop presentations will be available to attendees following the conclusion of the workshop. Speakers do not write formal papers and are not expected to release their presentations for publication.

What You Won't See
