This workshop is intended to address all types of stimulation practices used in 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.
