Integrity is a part of safety. How to find the right balance between safety and efficiency? How to evaluate the well integrity related risks and which level of risk is acceptable? What is the main objective of well integrity business in terms of HSE?
The technical challenges in reservoir management are often related to accurately understanding the reservoir geology, petrophysics, and geomechanics. This knowledge helps to evaluate, model, and simulate various depletion options to determine which would provide the best results. By understanding key reservoir characteristics, it is possible to better predict fluid flow and the ultimate recovery of the reservoir. Reservoir surveillance is one of the key elements of reservoir management, which aims to develop a consistent depletion plan. Advancement in surveillance technology and creative ways of utilising existing tools and techniques should improve reservoir management techniques such as commingling production for several layers, performing water and gas injection, and defining the bypassed hydrocarbon area.

Submission of an Abstract All authors that want to present a Technical Paper in this Symposium must submit an Abstract, with a short summary of the paper and its main conclusions, following the LINK in this page and completing the data required in that link. The deadline for the Call for Papers is March 6th, 2018. The Abstract should be classified by the author in one of the following Symposium Topics: 1. Well Construction Practices 2. Unconventional Reservoirs Engineering 3. Characterization of tight and shale reservoirs 4. Well Completion and Stimulation Optimization 5. Well Testing 6. Hydrocarbon recovery increase 7. Technological advances 8. Case Studies 9. Environmental Aspects Note: "Other suggested topics connected to the above mentioned ones are those related with Unconventional Hydrcarbon Production like: Choke Management and Artificial Lift Systems in Horizontal Multifractured Wells". The interest of this Symposium is focused in Tight Gas, Shale Oil and Shale Gas reservoirs. Other disciplines as "Heavy Oil Recovery", "Coal Bed Methane", "Methane Hydrates", etc., that might be considered as unconventional hydrocarbon resources, are not included among the topics for this specific event.
