Drilling and CompletionsBack to disciplines home
Attend a web event on “Drilling Automation Research at the University of Texas at Austin” presented by Eric van Oort and Pradeep Ashok on 27 January.
Learn the basics of oil & gas shale evaluation and current shale “sweet spot” selection, well completion, fracturing, and production technologies for shale reservoirs.
Lasers are on track to provide safe, nonexplosive, damage-free perforations. Current industrial laser technology addresses efficiency, portability, and reliability issues required for successful commercial field applications on all rock types, including shale.
The magnetic property of drilling fluid is one of the substantial error sources for the determination of azimuth while drilling deviated wells.
The 2014 SPE Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition was held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands Oct. 27-29. Of special interest to me as R & D Committee Chairman was SPE's first Research & Development Competition held on Monday, 27 October.
Attend a web event on “Safety Culture Before and After Bhopal” presented by Howard Duhon on 24 February.
Come to London to attend this key industry event for excellent technical content, an innovative exhibition, and professional networking opportunities.

The success of hydraulic fracturing technologies in North America is raising interest to develop unconventional resources in various parts of the world where freshwater resources are not readily available.
Join the 17 February web event on “Shale Formation Re-Fracturing; Why do it, What is Needed and How?” presented by Ibrahim S. Abou-Sayed. Multi-fractured horizontal wells in Shale plays exhibit, sometimes dramatic, performance decline due to deterioration in completion efficiency.
