The European Well Productivity Forum is a great opportunity for industry professionals to discuss the latest technologies, experiences and design principles in quality well construction, in informal surroundings

The Forum objective is to promote the highest level of well productivity (or injectivity). This is through the execution of optimised drilling, completion and production or injection operations to minimise impairment and achieve quality and fit-for-purpose wells to maximise the flow potential and recovery of hydrocarbons.

The period of low oil prices in recent years has resulted in the requirement for the industry to maximise well productivity whilst reducing the CAPEX and OPEX of development projects.

The challenging environment means that operators need to re-focus on drilling and completion technologies and techniques in order to prevent, diagnose and remediate impairment both in the formation and the well completion itself, in order to achieve the greatest productivity or injectivity.

The Forum will provide attendees with an in-depth discussion of key well productivity subjects. The agenda will include research-based and field-tested industry topics, delivering current and relevant technical knowledge, good practices and experience.

Attendees will:

  • Leave with a better understanding of how to create more productive wells
  • Network with respected industry experts
  • Discuss new technology and techniques in an informal setting
