About The Symposium

Under the theme “Transforming Resources into Reserves and Production” the program will emphasize specific practical cases, the use of new technologies and innovative projects.

Symposium Format

The Symposium will maximize the exchange of ideas among attendees and presenters through technical ‎presentations followed by extended Q&A. Focused topics will attract an informed audience eager to ‎discuss issues critical to advancing both technology and best practices.‎ There will be a combination of papers and invited presentations which can take the form of case studies, best practices and technology reviews highlighting engineering achievements and ‎lessons learned. Frank discussion will be stimulated as well as the presentation of study cases (even unsuccessful ones) including a critical analysis of advantages and inconveniences faced with the implemented changes.‎

Technical Papers

Those authors whose abstracts are selected for presentation in the Symposium will have the option for their Technical Papers:

  1. To be registered, numbered and published by the SPE (URL of the Symposium and One Petro). An URL containing copies of the Symposium presentations under this option ‎will be available to all attendees following the Symposium.
  1. Not to be registered, nor published by the SPE, if they want to keep the confidentiality of the information within the Symposium scope. The Technical Papers, under this option, will not need to follow the standard format of the SPE and will not be available in the URL of the Symposium (neither in One Petro). These Presentations could be published in our web page only if the SPE Argentina receives explicit consent from the authors.


Consistent with Symposium objectives and SPE guidelines, commercialism in presentations will ‎not be permitted. Company logos should be used only to indicate the affiliation of the presenter(s).‎
