Organisers of this year’s SPE ICoTA Well Intervention Conference are calling for experts in well intervention to submit an abstract and share the latest developments in the field with their peers

The annual conference, hosted by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen Section and the Intervention and Coiled Tubing Association (ICoTA), will take place in November 2016 in Aberdeen.

Steve Cromar, Chairman of this year’s SPE ICoTA Well Intervention Conference said: “Innovation and collaboration, along with cost reduction and maximising producing safely, are all fundamental to the future success of our industry.”
“The annual SPE ICoTA European Well Intervention Conference and Exhibition offers technical experts the opportunity to share their expertise and experiences in this niche field with other industry professionals, with the aim of improving industry best practice and further driving technological advancement.” 

Presentation abstracts are welcomed on relevant topics including well integrity, abandonment operations, intervention techniques and technology, completion systems and cost savings.  Abstracts must be received by 29 July and should be no more than 200 words for presentations of 25 minutes. 

Meanwhile, Aberdeen-based Ithaca Energy’s new FPF-1” floating production facility for its Stella field development has departed the Remontowa shipyard in Gdansk, Poland.

The vessel has been moved to a deep water location offshore Gdansk to undertake final marine system trials over the course of this week, after which it will be towed to the N. Sea.
