SPE International Conference and Exhibition on Formation Damage Control

February 23rd-25th, 2022
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Lafayette
1521 W Pinhook Rd, Lafayette, LA 70503

The one aspect of the petroleum industry that has remained constant during decades of its pendulum existence has been the desire to optimize oil and gas production with minimum cost.

The SPE International Conference and Exhibition on Formation Damage Control is an excellent venue to share your expertise, experience, and knowledge with your colleagues around the world. Contribute to the exchange of ideas via technical and poster sessions, exhibitor presentations, panel discussions, and continuing education courses.

We hope to see you in Lafayette, Louisiana next February during the festive Mardi Gras season.

Call for Papers Now OPEN, Paper proposal submission deadline 4 August 2021
