SPE-GCS 2015 Reservoir Technology Forum




The Forum 

The Reservoir Technology Forum is the annual event hosted by the SPE Gulf Coast Section Reservoir Study Group designed to disseminate knowledge and technology needed to achieve the many objectives of reservoir management, including understanding risk, increasing production and reserves, and maximizing recovery. This year, we focus our attention on technical and practical aspects related to technology and innovation, EOR/IOR, and unconventional resources. This Forum is also a great opportunity to network with oil and gas industry professionals in an engaging and dynamic environment. Please join the SPE-GCS Reservoir Study Group for this event!
