Latest E&P Technology Innovations with Topics Covering Multistage Fracturing, Data Analytics, and More to Highlight ATCE 2017

Latest E&P Technology Innovations with Topics Covering Multistage Fracturing, Data Analytics, and More to Highlight ATCE 2017

San Antonio, Texas, USA (5 October 2017) — On 9–11 October,  the Society of Petroleum Engineers’ (SPE) Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE) will bring together an array of international exhibitors and technical presentations at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, USA.

In its 93rd year, ATCE will feature 400 exhibiting companies from 16 different countries, covering approximately 100,000 square feet of floor space, and showcasing a broad range of technological innovations, new products and valuable industry services.

ATCE received a record number of paper proposals – 2,521 – and will offer close to 400 paper presentations and ePosters, as well as panel sessions. Terry Palisch, the ATCE 2017 Program Chairperson, said whatever members’ discipline is, there will be technical papers to peak their interest.

“Many of us get wrapped up in our day-to-day work and don’t have the chance to think strategically,” he said. “When you attend ATCE, you can immerse yourself in the new technologies presented and then return home better equipped to think outside the box and collaborate with your colleagues.”

Topics expected to draw a lot of interest that provide solutions for today’s challenges include:

  • Multistage horizontal fracturing treatment optimization
  • Water management and conservation
  • Downhole gauges that are tied into a neural network
  • Artificial lift technologies that are driven by the internet-of-things
  • New uses of unmanned autonomous vehicles and drones for operational efficiency
  • Safer helicopter and transport operations
  • Petroleum data driven analytics and decision making

Palisch also noted networking as a key feature of ATCE. “You can join a diverse crowd of engineers, scientists, management and policymakers to access the latest technologies and innovations as well as network with your colleagues,” he said.

In addition, ATCE will again host pre- and post-conference training courses covering a wide range of industry topics. The annual ATCE Annual Reception and Banquet on Tuesday, 10 October will recognize outstanding SPE members who have made significant contributions to the industry, and the President’s Luncheon and Annual
Meeting of Members on Wednesday, 11 October will highlight new Society achievements and upcoming initiatives.

“Whether you’re interested in the latest technology in drilling, drones, hurricane recovery or anything else E&P-related, this year’s show has something for everyone, from industry heavy weights to early career professionals and even students,” said ATCE 2017 General Chairperson Vicki Hollub. “ATCE is dedicated to providing SPE members practical and insightful solutions for today and tomorrow’s challenges and trends, and I am confident that our diverse program of global exhibitors and presenters will do just that.”
