The first in a series of technical symposiums, this session brought together the operations, facilities, and service providers to discuss the emerging challenges associated with increased well counts and productivity throughout the resource plays in the continental US.  A shifting focus from resource evaluation to resource monetization brings about new issues that require both engineers and executives to think beyond the drill bit.

Sessions covered:  

· What are the most effective paraffin mitigation strategies in today’s onshore production environment?

· How can horizontal wells be designed to balance operability, hydrocarbon recovery and cost?

· How can gathering systems be designed and operated in the most efficient manner?

· What are the biggest business challenges that have to be overcome in order to successfully bring
onshore assets to market?
