Operators relentlessly make step-change advancements in delivering greater value from new wells, driven by reductions in cost, increased efficiencies, and improvements in productive impact. Drilling engineers generate charts showing an ever reducing number of days from spud to TD. The only limit seeming to be how fast they can lower drill pipe down the hole. And yet all that is for naught if the well cannot be completed and stimulated to unlock the true value of the formation. Please join us for a moderated panel discussion by a top group of experts who will share with us case studies on how they have continuously increased rates, EURs, and value delivered by improving the completion and stimulation techniques utilized in their wells. What were the keys to these advancements?  What have been the main improvements within the wellbore? How have SRV’s been manipulated to deliver better results? What are the trends in advanced stimulation strategies to create near field fracture diversion? What has been the impact of low commodity prices on the methods used to achieve success? Do refracs offer an opportunity with existing well inventory? 

Please join us at the Four Seasons for this informative discussion. The popular format of a Business & Social Networking hour, with complimentary Hors’ D’ Oeuvres and a cash bar, followed by an hour and a half long program including a Q&A session, will begin at 5:00 pm in the Mezzanine.
