Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Iraq Workshop
Few years have passed since the Iraq hydrocarbon market emerged to take an active role in the global energy market; growing fast with many different types of technical and logistical challenges but offering rewarding fruit. Our first SPE Iraq workshop aims to bridge the gap between the present and future by addressing vital components, technologies, challenges, practices and ventures for safe and productive results.
The workshop is designed to present best-practices and to share knowledge and experience between participating professionals on different topics; covering the surface and subsurface challenges, targeting and attracting the multidiscipline of Iraq oil & gas population. The national, international, oil and service providers, engineering and consulting firms and organisations participating in this event shall enrich the Workshop the exposure and prospective.
The sessions and discussions will concentrate on major industry development concerns which Iraq may utilize in the short to mid-term, such as: reservoir engineering, data management, production enhancement, fluid's chemical treatment and injection, environmental and waste challenges, drilling and well integrity, completion and production technology and water management. Special sessions will also focus on the “Human Factor” – developing human capability.
SPE Middle East, North Africa and India will assist in providing a visa invitation letter, upon request in writing, to confirmed registrants after receiving full payment of registration fees. Visa invitation letters take five days to issue from the date of request and it is the delegate's responsibility to obtain their own visa. SPE cannot issue the visa nor can we guarantee it will be obtained.
Three (3) days of informal discussions prompted by selected keynote presentations and discussions. Workshops maximise the exchange of ideas among attendees and presenters through brief technical presentations followed by extended Q&A periods. Focused topics attract an informed audience eager to discuss issues critical to advancing both technology and best practices. The majority of the presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering achievements and lessons learnt. In order to stimulate frank discussion, no proceedings are published and the press is not invited to attend.
