This 2-day workshop, organized by SPE and the ICoTA MENA Chapter, will discuss a variety of novel technologies and techniques employed to meet the objectives of safe and efficient well intervention, addressing many unique operational challenges faced across the ME Region.

The exploration and development of challenging reservoirs is now a common practice for oil and gas operating companies worldwide, unlocking reserves previously beyond reach. The economic drivers to maximise the potential of unconventional plays have spurred significant progress in extended reach drilling and completion techniques. This has led to substantial advancements in well intervention technologies that support the safe development of these challenging reservoirs, including high sour environments historically outside the limits.

Applying these cutting-edge methods to redevelop mature fields has also proven to be a cost-effective strategy to enhance oil recovery to levels previously unattainable.

Meeting the long-term life cycle requirements of these challenging wells relies heavily on innovation and research and development in the well intervention arena.

This workshop will cover a multitude of advanced technology developments including relevant case histories in the field of extreme well intervention.

The event will aim to provide an open forum for attendees to share the latest advancements in technology and discuss relevant case studies that will help expand the barrier of extended reach intervention to meet current and future needs.

Technical Sessions

  • Extended Reach Well Surveillance
  • Stimulation & Advanced Chemistry
  • Advancement in Downhole Measurements
  • Technology Advancement in Downhole Tools
  • Enablers for Extreme Intervention
  • A Novel Approach to Challenges - Operating to Development

Please be advised that your workshop registration will remain valid for the new workshop dates.

We thank you in advance for your utmost understanding and we are looking forward to welcoming you to the workshop Extreme Well Intervention next year in Abu Dhabi.
