In the early days of February, we traveled to Houston to attend one of the most important events in the Oil & Gas industry: the SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition. After the pandemic face-to-face meetings were resumed to bring together exploration professionals and experts to learn about the latest advances and practices in hydraulic fracturing.
The key players in the industry attended the event and there was an interesting schedule of technical sessions. We would like to highlight the most important ones:
- Modeling Proppant Transport in Casing and Perforations Based on Proppant Transport Surface Tests.
- CounterProp Delivering Beneficial Proppant Flowback Mitigation and Improved Well Productivity – A Success Story from Permian.
- Feasibility of Using Drill Cuttings as Proppants in Unconventional Reservoirs.
- New Casing Friction Model for Slickwater: Field Data Validation, Application, and Optimization for Hydraulic Fracturing.
- A Computational Model to Simulate Proppant Transport and Placement in Rough Fractures.
The meeting was a great opportunity to learn first-hand about the latest development in the sector, continue to be at the forefront of the industry and interact with our clients and colleagues.
Once again, we are very glad to be able to attend this event that is emerging as one of the best in such area.
