SPE OKC Oil & Gas Symposium

(Previously known as SPE-POS OKC)

This biennial symposium held at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City is devoted to showcasing the most advanced proven technologies as well as future or emerging technological concepts to further the development and production of oil and natural gas.

The meeting will present papers to help operators achieve commercial viability with innovative solutions to drilling, completion, and production engineering issues. The goal is to help the oil and gas industry improve well and program economics and extend commercial success to reservoirs that are difficult to produce.

Our next Symposium will be held April 7-11, 2019.
