SPE Workshop: Adding Value to Mature Fields & Late Life Assets - Going Beyond 30 Sep - 1 Oct 2019 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

About this Workshop

Workshop Description

The current situation has re-energised operators and contractors towards further developing technologies and work methods that specifically maximise economic recovery from mature and late life fields. We will continue to see improvements in production efficiency, production enhancement activities, and idle well restoration, as well as innovation in handling increased water and gas from reservoirs. Innovative development, operational synergies and clustering approaches, together with partial or full asset decommissioning strategies are among the key focus areas that will continuously add value to existing assets and Near Field Exploitation (NFE) opportunities.

This workshop is designed to bring together people from the host government, operating companies, service providers and thought leaders to share best practices, ideas, and plans while collaborating cohesively to further add value to mature and late life fields.

Workshop Objectives 

This workshop provides a platform for sharing experience, knowledge, successes and challenges, learnings and ideas to further advance redevelopment of mature and late life fields. It will give an opportunity to understand the interaction between technological focus and value creation.

Opportunity to learn new ideas and techniques, both technical and commercial that drive future value and extend the life of mature and late life fields down to the decommissioning stage. Networking with industry colleagues and innovators through the various presentations, panel sessions and group discussions.

Benefits of Attending

Attendees would be able to share experiences, gain insights from presentations and discussions, collaborate with a broad spectrum of people in the industry and gain knowledge to enhance future undertakings.

Workshop Guidelines

Format and Programme

  • SPE Workshop maximises idea exchange among attendees and discussion leaders through brief technical presentations followed by extended Q&A periods.
  • Workshops typically spans two (2) days with highly focused topics to provide attendees with practical information on the latest applications of relevant technology, illustrated with field case studies and examples.
  • Each day will consist of a morning and an afternoon technical session, and may include a scheduled evening session. Additionally, poster sessions may be arranged as part of the programme.
  • The technical programme is planned and developed by the Workshop Programme Committee, which comprises an international group of 12 to 15 subject matter experts. The programme committee is led by two Co-Chairs.

Abstract Submission and Speaking Opportunities

  • The technical programme is comprised of abstracts and informal presentations solicited by the committee.
  • There will be no paper publication in SPE OnePetro, hence manuscript submission is not required after an abstract has been reviewed and approved by the committee.
  • Only presentations that have been authorised for release by speakers/discussion leaders are compiled by SPE staff and distributed to attendees post-workshop.


  • All attendees (including committee members and speakers/facilitators/discussion leaders) are required to register for the workshop at accorded registration rates established by SPE. Such fee will cover attendance at all sessions, workshop programme, coffee breaks, networking luncheons and dinner (as indicated in the programme), Continuing Education Units (CEU) certification, and post-workshop pack.
