Permian Basin Frac Design & New Completion Technologies 2017

American Business Conferences is proud to announce the return of its flagship Permian Completions Optimization Congress to Houston this November, after a two and half year hiatus. Re-branded as the Permian Frac Design & New Completions Technologies 2017, the comeback event is guaranteed to showcase never-before-seen or heard frac recipes and practical lessons learned to achieve higher IPs, better PV10s, and maximize the ultimate oil recovery at the lowest cost.

New Focus On Key Completions Cost Drivers, Including Pounds Per Foot, Stage Spacing, Cluster Optimization And Water Management

With Permian completions activity overtaking drilling, both in terms of investment and focus, and rig count rising to unprecedented levels, operators are aggressively trying new things to get the most of their wells - bigger frac jobs, more sand and tighter stages. Everybody is interested in what the operator down the road is doing to make a few more barrels - Is his increased recovery related to geology or stimulation or completions? Irrespective of the short or long term goal, one thing is clear - completions designs can significantly transform a company's portfolio, making it economic or uneconomic. But, what is the optimal completions strategy for the current price environment, where efficiencies and economics are optimized?

Thoroughly researched with dozens of operators across the Permian Basin, and beyond, the 2017 agenda is a direct reflection of where the industry is and what operators really needs now.

With brand new topics and features built in over three days of proceedings, this year's agenda, focuses on the ultimate goal of making the most of every well and optimizing completions and production efficiencies, without increasing cost, and covers the full breadth of best practices to move wells from planning to ultimate frac design application stage.

  • 3 Days, Over 20 Speakers, 24+ Hours of Learning & Networking > Take back especially designed seminar material plus all conference presentations
  • Unmatched Speaker Line-Up > ABC takes its industry-renowned formula for delivering the highest quality speakers and content, to bring you a completions focused speaker line-up you won't see anywhere else, featuring majors, super majors and mid-sized operating companies and innovators in the technology space
  • Actual Frac Recipes & Lessons Learned > Find out which frac recipes were applied, what results they got and how it's helped them drive results
  • No Stones Left Unturned > With no grey areas, speakers at the comeback 2017 event will deliver practical success stories in every cost-intensive area of completions and well stimulation - you won't find value like this anywhere else

Look forward to welcoming you to the Permian Frac Design & New Completions Technologies 2017 in Houston this November.
