Coiled Tubing & Well Intervention Conference & Exhibition
21-22 March 2017
George R. Brown
Houston, TX USA

One of SPE's most popular annual events returns to Houston in 2017. The SPE/ICoTA Coiled Tubing and Well Intervention Conference and Exhibition will offer top-notch technical sessions, informative speakers, Knowledge Sharing ePoster presentations, special events, and training courses.

This conference will cover innovative solutions, case histories, and performance improvements across all sectors of the well intervention industry, including:

  • Coiled tubing 
  • Wireline and tractor
  • Hydraulic workover/snubbing
  • Pumping services

General themes to be covered include technology and applications, offshore as well as onshore operations, and HSE. In the light of current industry challenges, we will be encouraging a special focus on increasing operations efficiency, reducing non-productive time, and performing cost effective well abandonment.

Experts will share their knowledge on the performance and effectiveness of well intervention and coiled tubing options through presentations, training courses, and an exhibition of services and products. Attendee participation in the conference is the key to its success. Mark your calendar and make plans now to participate in this important industry event!

You are invited to submit a paper proposal on one of the abstract submission categories. Paper selections will be based on the technical and operational content as well as the relevance to the conference and the industry. Potential authors are strongly encouraged to submit a detailed abstract. The deadline to submit a proposal is 10 August 2016.

Contact SPE at 972-952-9393 or visit the conference website for exhibition and/or sponsorship opportunities.

USA Chapter
SPE / ICoTA Refracturing Workshop: Advancing the Learning Curve
11-12 April 2017
Archer Hotel
Austin, TX USA

Workshop agenda   |  Sponsorship Opportunities  | Training Course  Register to Attend

Across all oil and gas plays, the rapidly evolving approaches to completion and stimulation design and deployment have created enormous opportunities to re-enter and re-stimulate wells that were treated early in play development. With the deep and sustained reduction in oil price, refracturing creates a highly attractive opportunity for many of these wells. Subject matter experts will present case study presentations on extensive field experiences and provide technical updates on refracturing. This workshop is an opportunity to network as well as to learn the newest developments.

Topics to be covered:

  • Selection process for refracturing candidates
  • Deployment techniques and intervention requirements
  • Zonal isolation and chemical/mechanical diversion
  • Refrac design and modeling and economics
  • Future/Emerging Technologies

This event will provoke interaction; outline and summarize existing solutions and challenges; and accelerate new technologies through experiences and lessons learned.
