About this Workshop

This ATW will be a follow-up to the highly successful 2019 event to bring some of the best and latest experience for Unconventional Well Completions and Stimulation practices and the relationship interdependence with resource development optimization and parent-child interactions.  Sessions will frame the general technical considerations and trends and followed with Regional Sessions to highlight experiences and practices in the most active regional development areas.

Understanding the interdependencies of the completions and stimulation projects with resource development optimization is critical to determine the best economic risk balance of resource development with managed over-capitalization. As unconventional developments mature, managing parent-child well interactions have become more challenging. This Applied Technology Workshop has been designed to share data, experiences, best practices and ideas from across North America Unconventional Resource Developments for Well Completions, Resource Development Optimization and Parent-Child Interaction.

Workshop Guidelines

Workshops maximize the exchange of ideas among attendees and presenters through brief technical presentations followed by extended Q&A periods. Focused topics attract an informed audience eager to discuss issues critical to advancing both technology and best practices.

Many of the presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering achievements and lessons learned. In order to stimulate frank discussion, no proceedings are published and members of the press are not invited to attend.


Proceedings from the workshop will not be published; therefore, formal papers and handouts are not requested of speakers or panel members. A URL containing released copies of the workshop presentations will be available to attendees following the workshop.


In remaining consistent with workshop objectives and SPE guidelines, commercialism in presentations will not be permitted.  Company logos should be used only to indicate the affiliation of the presenter(s).

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

Attendees will receive 2.0 CEUs.

One CEU equals 10 contact hours of participation. CEUs will be awarded through SPE Professional Development for participation and completion of SPE workshop. A permanent record of a participant’s involvement and awarding of CEUs will be maintained by SPE.
