Due to ongoing global public health concerns, and following extensive consultation with our key partners and stakeholders, the SPE Workshop: Optimizing the Near Wellbore Region – Technologies, Procedures and Best Practices to Enable Successful Completions will be rescheduled to 2-3 November 2021.
We will be contacting all speakers, sponsors and delegates with regards to the new arrangements.
Thank you for your understanding of these complex circumstances.


Fracture initiation is an event that is defined by a single pressure point but is impacted by a myriad of different circumstances from drilling & cementing to perforating.  Many efforts are made to maximize diversion, minimize near well stresses and measure tortuosity but there is still much to be learned.  


This workshop will focus on technologies and techniques employed to optimize the near well region for stimulation starting with the drilling process and the domino effect that ensues. Attendees that are focused on the multidisciplinary big picture of optimization will find this workshop engaging and beneficial.
