SPE / ICoTA (USA Chapter)
Refracturing Workshop: Advancing the Learning Curve
11-12 April 2017
Archer Hotel, Austin, TX USA

Workshop agenda   |  Sponsorship Opportunities  | Training Course 

Across all oil and gas plays, the rapidly evolving approaches to completion and stimulation design and deployment have created enormous opportunities to re-enter and re-stimulate wells that were treated early in play development. With the deep and sustained reduction in oil price, refracturing creates a highly attractive opportunity for many of these wells. Subject matter experts will present case study presentations on extensive field experiences and provide technical updates on refracturing. This workshop is an opportunity to network as well as to learn the newest developments.

Topics to be covered:

  • Selection process for refracturing candidates
  • Deployment techniques and intervention requirements
  • Zonal isolation and chemical/mechanical diversion
  • Refrac design and modeling and economics
  • Future/Emerging Technologies

This event will provoke interaction; outline and summarize existing solutions and challenges; and accelerate new technologies through experiences and lessons learned.
