The 25th SPE ICoTA European Well Intervention Conference is the largest and longest established conference of its kind in Europe and is attended by a strong mix of disciplines including intervention, integrity, production, completions and subsurface engineers.

Following on from the success of the original Operator stand last year, we are building a larger pavilion to offer you the chance to collaborate, network and promote new and established techniques in intervention technology to a much wider group of Operators.

“You will not get a better opportunity to meet a group of like-minded peers, all in the same room, at the same time to discuss your challenges and hear many different solutions and see the different types of technology available to you.”

Conference Chair 2019 Mark Oatey, ConocoPhillips
