On behalf of the program committee, it is my pleasure to announce that the SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference will be held 31 January– 2 February 2023, in The Woodlands, Texas, USA.
As it has been doing since its inception in 2007, the conference will showcase advancements in hydraulic fracturing technologies and improvements in fracture treatment designs, completion technologies, and well placement strategies. Case histories from fracturing operations, technology trials and field development optimization in conventional and unconventional formations around the world will be the foundation of the conference, along with a focus on innovation and improvements.
We will kick-off the conference with the Steve Holditch Plenary session that will focus on issues central to our business, presented by experts from within and outside the oil & gas industry. The Plenary session also typically features an SPE Legends of Hydraulic Fracturing Award. The technical sessions will consist of paper presentations representing the best the industry has to offer.
Areas of special interest for the 2023 conference will include transferable case studies and the latest advances in fracturing applications and materials, developments in data driven solutions, recent developments in fracture diagnostic technologies, and the integration of advanced measurement technologies and state-of-the art models. All of which are geared to aid in evaluation and improve well performance and reserve recovery.
The program committee is requesting abstract submissions to help develop the technical program. Details on the call for papers process is now available on the Call for Papers page.
Please plan to attend the conference and mark your calendar now for 31 January – 2 February 2023.
