Upcoming Events

  • SMN Technology Showcase

    The SMN Technology Showcase is a new event in the SMN portfolio and we want to profile our members who are innovative, leading edge companies breaking boundaries.

    We are searching for members to tell us what exactly you are offering and why you are making a difference in your field.   We are looking for submissions on new technology, demonstration in the field, research on your new technology, and application.

    We will have a panel of judges who will select the top six applicants to go forward to present at the Showcase, and will then be sitting in on your presentation, asking some searching questions and finally evaluating and selecting a winner.

    The eventual winner will be presented with a trophy. 

    This is a chance for you to shine and gain recognition across our network and social media channels.  Each participant will be profiled in the run up in the event.

    Details coming very soon

SPE SMN 7th Sand Management Euroforum

30th - 31st March 2016

Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre


Call for Abstracts - Deadline 30th September 2015

According to the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), 70% of the world's oil and gas reserves are contained in reservoirs where sand production will become a problem at some point during the life of the field.

Although no exact figures exist, the cost to operators of sand production is estimated to run into tens of billions of dollars. Effective sand management is therefore a key driver to ensuring the ongoing productivity of both future and existing developments.

The 7th SPE SMN Sand Management Euroforum continues 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.
