  2. 2. Sheraton Buenos Aires Hotel & Convention Center San Martin 1225-1227 Buenos Aires 1104 Argentina Phone: (54) 11 - 4318 9000 Website: Venue Information: If Argentine production declines were improved by mere percentage points, the country’s production could increase substantially, adding enough crude recovery to fuel the entire country for years to come. With the global average recovery factor in a mature field sitting at only 20-40% for oil and 70% for gas, much of the country’s assets remain untapped. Considering production optimization can increase incremental production by up to 25% and EOR applications up to 70%, operators are acutely focused on adopting the right production technologies and strategies for application in these fields. The answer lies in optimizing production techniques and EOR; the initial investment into which can be far lower than exploration and workover efforts, while delivering some of the highest returns. A modest 1% improvement in recovery could potentially deliver millions of dollars in added value to a company’s assets; YPF is just one company that agrees, stating that waterflooding can improve recovery by 6-8%, with polymer injection recovery forecasted to be even higher at 12-16%. Mature Fields Argentina Production Optimization 2014 is the first congress of its kind addressing how to select the optimal lift method to maximize reservoir production in light oil, heavy oil and gas fields. The congress will deliver best practices on artificial lift, production monitoring, deliquification, sand control, corrosion control, paraffin control and EOR. Over two days, attendees will benefit from 20 operator case studies specifically focused on how to reduce OPEX and maximize production in fields with a high water cut. The mission of the congress is for Argentinean operators to take away usable solutions focused on how to maximize the run life of the well and prevent well failures through field automation, surveillance, monitoring technologies, lift selection and optimization and secondary recovery applications. The First Congress Focused On Increasing The Ultimate Recovery Of Argentinean Mature Fields With Minimal Resources: • Evaluates how to select the most effective artificial lift for light and heavy oil reservoirs to maximize production results in depleted reservoirs • Identifies how lifts and deliquification processes can maximize recovery and minimize drowning gas fields • Delivers real-life case studies on how operators have not only prevented well failures but rectified sand, corrosion and paraffin issues downhole ARGENTINA’S FIRST MATURE FIELDS CONGRESS FOR PRODUCTION AND RESERVOIR PROFESSIONALS Jane Thomas + (1) 800 721 3915 ToSecureYourBoothOrDiscuss Tailor-MadeSponsorshipPackages,Contact: Sponsorship And Exhibition Opportunities Available At The Congress Need to generate new sales leads, launch a new product, engage key decision makers, build new future business relationships in key markets, or simply educate the industry about a new product?
