This workshop is intended to address all types of stimulation practices used in both the North Sea, continental Europe, North Africa and the Middle East (EAME). To achieve a fruitful discussion, workshop sessions have been designed to address both the very specific technical challenges and the fundamental questions pertaining to stimulation in a sensitive land and offshore environment. Optimising stimulation treatments in these economically challenging times, in both a technical and environmental arena, requires special considerations. The participation of major and independent operating companies and service companies will allow a wide sharing of views, experiences, and opinions on how to proceed toward successfully meeting all well objectives.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together a broad cross section of people actively involved in stimulation design and implementation within the region, while also introducing a select number of global stimulation specialists who will share their experiences. Open discussion, coupled with friendly debate, are encouraged. The goal is to define where we are today, the current and future stimulation challenges, and introduce new and proven technologies that may have application in the EAME region. The intended outcome of this workshop is to clearly define what is known and unknown, and to identify the most pertinent and promising solutions which can be applied.
