Operators and service companies working in the Permian Basin continue to develop and implement technologies to optimize production strategies.  Because of external market forces and differing priorities of individual companies, there is no “one size fits all” strategy.

This one-day symposium will focus on Completion Design and Diagnostics, ESG, Artificial Lift, and Mature Asset Management.  In these sessions, Permian Basin case studies and technological applications will be presented and discussed, highlighting both Midland and Delaware Basins.

Key themes to be explored during this symposium will include:


  • The latest in horizontal well completion optimization

  • New technologies and methods to meet corporate emissions goals

  • Finding the right timing in well-life for various artificial lift applications

  • Managing mature unconventional and conventional fields 

Join us for a day of informative presentations, industry-shaping discussions, and networking with other industry experts – providing actionable ideas to fit your production management priorities. 



What is an SPE-PB Symposium?

Symposiums maximize the exchange of ideas among delegates and presenters through brief technical presentations followed by extended Q&A periods. Focused topics attract an informed audience eager to discuss issues critical to advancing both technology and best practices. The majority of the presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering achievements and lessons learned. In order to stimulate frank discussion, no proceedings are published and the press is not invited to attend. Providing a bridge between SPE conferences and forums, Symposiums provide a practical overview of a technology and showcase technologies that are just experiencing their initial field applications. The one day symposium will include morning and afternoon single-track sessions and typically host 150-180 attendees.

Program Format

The technical program is planned and conducted by the volunteer program committee. The program committee is comprised 8-10 SPE members with expertise in the subject matter. Two members serve as Program Committee Co-Chairpersons. Two committee members chair each of the technical sessions. Typically, each session lasts 90 minutes and includes 3 presentations. Speakers’ presentations should not exceed 20 minutes to maximize the opportunities for discussion. There will be opportunities at coffee breaks, luncheons, and receptions to promote informal discussion among attendees.

Continuing education units (CEU) will be awarded for completion of the workshop. The CEUs are calculated based on contact hours of participation in the workshop (1 credit per 10 contact hours).

Professional Development Hours (PDH) will be awarded for completion of the Symposium. The PDHs are calculated based on contact hours of participation in the Symposium (1 credit per 1 contact hour).

Following the symposium, attendees will receive a list of attendees and a link to a secure URL where they may view the released presentations. Presentations are approved and edited by the author prior to posting.
