SPE Conference, Aberdeen 16-17 June 2021

The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) 10th Oilfield Corrosion Conference and Exhibition is scheduled to take place on 16-17 June in Aberdeen, at the new P&J Live Complex.

Once again, the oil and gas industry faces uncertain times due to falling demand. While the shock of the COVID-19 pandemic is hopefully short lived, the transition of energy from fossil fuels to renewable sources will continue in the long term. Combined with maturing fields and installations this will be an existential threat for some producers. Only those who can keep their cost of production below the market price will survive. We also live in an age when most fields are mature; production is falling, and our infrastructure is ageing.

Following the success of past events, the conference format will offer a combination of formal paper presentations and workshops. The morning sessions will allow for the presentation of new projects, technologies, challenges, and issues, while the afternoon discussion sessions will give attendees the opportunity to debate and review a range of key industry topics.

The event programme will also allow for ample meeting and networking opportunities for all participants, including at the official conference dinner, and exhibition which will be open on all conference days. During the conference, poster sessions will support the presentation of research work and technical project summaries, aimed in particular at graduate and postgraduate activities and junior industry professionals. Posters will be judged during the conference, with the best one being awarded the poster prize during the wrap-up session. SPE will also offer corrosion management training courses in conjunction with the conference.
