ASME IMECE 2015 Symposium 12-25: "Mechanics and Materials in the Oilfield"

Pedro Reis's picture

We would like to invite you to give a contributed talk at our symposium on “Mechanics and Materials in the Oilfield”, at the ASME IMECE November 13-19, 2015 in Houston, Texas.

Please forward this announcement to others you think may be interested in participating.  

12-25 Mechanics and Materials in the Oilfield

Description: The oil and gas industry is facing new challenges related to accessing narrow reservoirs (horizontal drilling), producing tight formations (fracturing in shale gas), isolating hot formations (cementing deep reservoirs), and improving safety. More recently, the industry is under scrutiny for environmental considerations (water usage during fracturing) as well as under pressure to introduce low-cost technologies. The range of scientific issues faced by the oilfield represents an immense research opportunity for the academic world. This symposium aims at linking industry professionals and academics by promoting and highlighting successful collaborations between industrial and academic researchers to address these scientific challenges facing the industry.

Topics of interest include:

    * Hydraulic fracturing;

    * Fracturing Fluids;

    * High temperature polymers;

    * Tubular mechanics;

    * Dynamics of drilling systems;

    * Wellbore zonal isolation (cement and elastomers);

    * Swellable seals.

Note that the abstract submission deadline is March 2, 2015 (this is a hard deadline).

Organizing Committee:

    Nathan Wicks, Schlumberger,

    Pedro Reis, MIT,

    Katia Bertoldi, Harvard University,

    Agathe Robisson, Schlumberger,
