About the Workshop

This workshop is discussion based. Open dialogue and participation are encouraged, and an abstract or paper is not required to present.    

Why Attend

An SPE workshop is a multi-day event that fosters knowledge sharing in an intensive learning experience. It provides brief technical presentations followed by extensive Q&A and discussion.

Staged in an intimate setting, an SPE workshop brings together E&P professionals with common roles and challenges to share ideas that advance both technology and best practices. They provide an environment for frank, open discussion. Press is not invited to attend.

The workshop’s program committee members solicit presentations from top industry professionals. This ensures a robust technical program with presentations that are laser-focused on best practices, lessons learned, and case studies.

​​What You Receive

Released copies of the workshop presentations will be available to attendees following the conclusion of the workshop. Speakers do not write formal papers and are not expected to release their presentations for publication.

Attendees at this workshop qualify for 2.0 SPE Continuing Education Units (CEU). One CEU equals 10 contact hours of participation.

A permanent record of a participant's involvement and awarding of CEUs will be maintained by SPE.

Prior workshops focused on new and emerging theories and models for time-rate and time-rate-pressure performance. This included statistical and analytical methods to address single and multi-well performance data using PTA (time/pressure), RTA (time/rate/pressure) and DCA (time/rate) data.
