• SPE SMN 9th Euroforum 2020

    Maximising Value Using Innovative Sand Management Technology

Due to COVID-19 it was necessary to postpone the Euroforum planned for March 2020. Our new planned dates were 23 – 25 November 2020 but due to continued uncertainty, we are moving back to 16 – 18 March 2021, our usual month for the conference. We need to ensure that we can host a safe event and the committee are keen to keep the event a face to face networking opportunity rather than go online.

We will be in contact with all presenters, sponsors, exhibitors and attendees and all bookings will be carried forward to the new dates. The programme is largely unchanged for now but we will be posting updates a little nearer the date.

Pre-Conference Workshop

16 March 2021, Ardoe House Hotel, Aberdeen

The workshop will provide drilling, completion, integrity and production engineers with an excellent overview of sand management, and enable them to understand the role of engineers out with their discipline. Plus students studying in the field wishing to expand their knowledge base and meet professionals working in the field.

Asset managers who are new to sand-producing fields or who want a refresher on sand management technology and practices would also find this workshop very valuable. There will be some emphasis on issues with drilling fluid design for sand control completions.

The workshop includes a non-technical session posing a light-hearted challenge to some of the day-to-day assumptions we make, to encourage fresh thinking.

Full Conference and Exhibition

17 & 18 March 2021, Ardoe House Hotel, Aberdeen

We invite you to participate in this specialist continuing education event to share knowledge and help drive forward and develop industry best practice. 

We will continue to build on the success of preceding conferences to provide a unique platform for operators, service companies and academics to share knowledge and to help drive forward and develop industry best practice.

The two-day conference will feature presentations from leading operators and service companies in the sector, particularly focusing on driving value and performance in the industry.
