    ‘Innovative Technologies and case studies that drive value and performance’

     

    Pre Conference Workshop

    27th March 2018, Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre

    The workshop will provide drilling, completion, integrity and production engineers with an excellent overview of sand management, and enable them to understand the role of engineers out with their discipline. Asset managers who are new to sand-producing fields or who want a refresher on sand management technology and practices would also find this workshop very valuable. There will be some emphasis on issues with drilling fluid design for sand control completions.

    The workshop includes a brief non-technical session posing a light-hearted challenge to some of the day-to-day assumptions we make, to encourage fresh thinking.

    Full Conference and Exhibition

    28th & 29th March 2018, Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre

    We invite you to participate in this specialist continuing education event to share knowledge and help drive forward and develop industry best practice. 

    We will continue to build on the success of preceding conferences to provide a unique platform for operators, service companies and academics to share knowledge and to help drive forward and develop industry best practice.

    The two-day conference will feature presentations from leading operators and service companies in the sector, particularly focusing on driving value and performance in the industry.
