— The 2020 SPE Improved Oil Recovery Conference Is Going Virtual —
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 SPE Improved Oil Recovery Conference will transition to a virtual-only online conference. It is still scheduled for August 29 – September 2, 2020. We recognize the value of interpersonal contact for networking, but our top priority must remain the safety of the conference attendees and support staff.
When the conference planning began more than a year ago, we chose Back to Basics; Moving Forward into the Future for our thematic signature for 2020. Little did we suspect that a pandemic would be the major disruptor in accelerating that future so abruptly. But we feel this industry will rise to the occasion—as it always has—and adapt to the new circumstances.
SPE remains committed to delivering rich, technical programs with participants from around the globe. We are in the process of contacting speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees with details of the new arrangements. For registration already paid in advance for an in-person conference, the final cost will be adjusted to the new, lower virtual rate. See the Registration page for further information.
Stay tuned to the website, our dedicated pages on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn for updates to the technical program, courses offered, and re-opened registration.
Thank you for your understanding during these complex circumstances.
