Letter from the Chairpersons,

The SPE Oklahoma City Oil and Gas Symposium, formally the Production Operations Symposium, is a biannual meeting devoted to the advancement of exploration, drilling, completion and production operations.  This symposium showcases the most advanced proven technologies, innovative uses of older techniques, as well as, future and emerging methods and concepts.

We invite you to submit a paper proposal for the 2019 symposium, which will be held on April 8-12, 2019 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  The program committee solicits high quality abstracts for papers on oil and gas drilling, completions, production, operations, and reservoir engineering technologies.

The symposium’s technical papers offer innovative solutions to help operators solve their engineering challenges, introduce them to new and emerging technologies and achieve or improve commercial success.  Our goal is to help the oil and gas industry improve program economics and extend commerciality to previously undevelopable hydrocarbon reserves.

General topic areas:

  • Wellbore Design

  • Drilling Operations

  • Formation Damage

  • Drilling Fluids and Materials

  • Drilling Measurement, Data Acquisition and Automation

  • Completion Operations

  • Completion Fluids and Materials

  • Hydraulic Fracturing

  • HSSE and Social Responsibility Management

  • Strategic Planning and Management

  • Energy Economics

  • Unconventional Production Facilities

  • Fundamental Research in Facilities Design, Construction and Operation

  • Enhanced Operations - Artificial Lift Systems

  • Well Operations, Optimization and Stimulation

  • Reservoir Simulation

  • Unconventional and Complex Reservoirs

Consideration will also be given to important topics not specifically listed above.

Deadline for abstract submittal has been extended to October 1, 2018

Thank you for your consideration of and participation in this important technical conference.  Please accept our invitation and plan to attend the 2018 SPE Production and Operations Symposium.
