Due to ongoing global public health concerns and following extensive consultation with our key partners and stakeholders, the co-located SPE Canada Unconventional Resources and Heavy Oil Conferences have been rescheduled to 15-16 September 2020. SPE is committed to delivering rich technical programs with participants from around the globe. We will be contacting all speakers, authors, exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees with regards to the new arrangements. Thank you for your understanding of these complex circumstances. The co-located SPE Canada Unconventional Resources and Heavy Oil Conferences are the premier platforms in North America to enable the exchange of information through case studies, technical advancements, and business strategies.

This course covers the fundamental principles concerning how hydraulic fracturing treatments can be used to stimulate oil and gas wells. It includes discussions on how to select wells for stimulation, what controls fracture propagation, fracture width, etc., how to develop data sets, and how to calculate fracture dimensions. The course also covers information concerning fracturing fluids, propping agents, and how to design and pump successful fracturing treatments. Learn more about training courses being offered. Current and future SPE Section and Student Chapter leaders are invited to engage and share. Every attendee leaves energised with a full list of ideas and a support network of fellow leaders. Those sections and student chapters actively participating in this workshop have consistently been recognized with awards as the best in SPE. SPE Cares is a global volunteering drive aimed at promoting, supporting and participating in community services at the SPE section and student chapter’s level. On its official launch this year at ATCE Dubai, SPE Cares will conduct a “Give a Ghaf” Tree Planting Programme to help preserve Ghaf’s cultural and ecological heritage. The Ghaf tree is an indigenous species, specific to UAE, Oman and Saudi Arabia. It is a drought tolerant, evergreen tree that can survive a harsh desert environment. The initiative not only aims to hold events/activities at ATCE, but also recognise community service that SPE members are already conducting in their respective student chapters and professional sections. The KEY Club, open daily, is an exclusive lounge for key SPE members. The lounge is open to those with 25 years or more of continuous membership, Century Club members, current and former SPE Board officers and directors, Honorary and Distinguished Members, as well as this year’s SPE International Award Winners and Distinguished Lecturers. DSATS (SPE’s Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section) will hold a half-day symposium featuring keynote presentations on urban automation. This symposium will explore technologies being used in developing smart cities through the automation of their infrastructure, transportation systems, energy distribution, water systems, street lighting, refuse collection, etc. These efforts rely on many of the same tools needed for drilling systems automation yielding increased efficiencies, lower maintenance and reduced emissions.

Please congratulate SPE’s Award recipients for 2020. SPE awards recognize members who have contributed exceptional service and leadership to the society and the community, as well as those who made major professional contributions to their technical disciplines. SPE international awards are global in scope, recognizing members who have made industry wide achievements or provided significant local impact. International awards are presented during ATCE. They are presented at region and section meetings.
This advanced course for effectively managing various production operations/processes under uncertainty, timely capture, and development of reliable relevant information is very critical. Some of the information could be strategic and lead to modification of operations via identification of improvement opportunities or of imminent threats. Therefore, surveillance operations are continued until their marginal value is greater than corresponding marginal costs. There is a growing consensus that the current low oil and gas prices would prevail for at least the next several years. It is also widely acknowledged that most options for obtaining indirect information for managing surface or sub-surface operations involve significant direct and/or indirect costs as well as risks.
This course examines the rationale and philosophy behind the screening process for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) and Improved Oil Recovery (IOR). Participants will learn to identify the technical and economic factors that determine the feasibility of a given IOR / EOR scheme. Emphasis is on the practical side, with a minimum of theory. Participants will receive a workbook containing copies of the instructor's presentations and solutions to class problems. This course is an excellent way to quickly boost your professional skills and learn from a recognized expert in the field of enhanced oil recovery.
This course will emphasize critical considerations during enhanced oil recovery (EOR) screening and pilot design. Discussions will include monitoring and surveillance, and EOR project implementation. Appropriate case studies and exercises will be used to illustrate various concepts. This course will provide participants the opportunity to review and learn the most up-to-date information available about EOR technologies and strategies practiced today. Engineers, geologists, managers, and planning personnel involved in EOR project development.
