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


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.


Share your technical expertise during the Poster Session

Held in conjunction with the Tuesday Networking Reception, poster owners will present and answer questions on technologies and case histories relevant to Refracturing.
