Encuentro sobre retos y oportunidades del aseguramiento del flujo en Colombia

  • Workshop on flow assurance callenges in Colombia | Uniandes
Eventos | Uniandes
Lugar: Calle 21 No. 1-20
Fecha: De 21 de Noviembre 2019 hasta 22 de Noviembre 2019
hora: 8:00 am

The main goal of this first workshop is to gather industrial and academic key players in one scenario to have an open discussion about a topic with great impact in the short and long term for unconventional oil producing countries such as Colombia: Flow Assurance. During this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to have grasp of the latest research on this area through technical presentations. Additionally, a series of presentations from key oil companies and oil services will set the tone for current opportunities and challenges that will hopefully engage and motivate people to work together. This workshop is intended for people with a special interest in petroleum engineering who would like to engage in flow assurance and expand their industrial/academic network.
