MTM #20 - Houston, April 2017


MTM No.20 was hosted by Halliburton at their facility in Houston on 27th and 28th April 2017.  As with MTM No.19 in Aberdeen in September 2016, the meeting was oversubscribed and brought together a wide range of technical specialists from the operating companies and the service sector to share challenges, success stories and new innovations that have been developed and implemented around the industry segment.

A number of members who could not join in person joined via Halliburton's teleconferencing system and this enabled very effective presentations and interaction from the remote participants. The meeting was scheduled over the two days with a greater focus on operations on the first day and data analysis techniques on the second. The enthusiasm and interest generated during the talks often created extended discussions; many talks generated significant follow on questioning and whilst efforts were made to get important points discussed and build on the experience in the meeting it appeared clear that there was a desire from a number of participants to progress a number of topics further.
