Message from the ATCE 2019 Program Chairs

Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to announce the SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE) will take place on 30 September–2 October 2019 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

On behalf of the program committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to visit Calgary and participate in our premier event by submitting a paper proposal to share your innovation, technical advancements, lessons learned, best practices, and case studies with your industry peers. The Call for Papers will open in late September, and the deadline to submit a proposal is Monday, 21 January 2019.

As the industry continues to recover, E&P professionals have found innovative ways to extract more from the data collected and have developed new products and processes to economically produce hydrocarbons to fuel the world. We encourage you to share your knowledge and insights, such as examples of collaborations between service companies and operators and among senior and young professionals. If accepted, you will present your paper at ATCE 2019, and your paper will also be included in OnePetro®, the multisociety online library of technical documents.

For 2019, the program committee has been challenged to be creative and incorporate innovative formats and session structures, along with traditional paper presentations.

Help shape the technical program for ATCE 2019 by submitting your proposal by 21 January, and plan to join us in Calgary next year.
Best Regards,

Peggy Rijken
ATCE 2019 Program Chairperson

Junichi Sugiura
ATCE 2019 Program Vice Chairperson
