01. SPE Workshop: Well Completions for Unconventional Resource Development Optimization and Parent Child Interaction
I want to talk about some of the social activities and really emphasize, I can't stress enough about the value of workshops. And some of the reasons why I prefer these events to the larger bigger draw conferences, these are very personal. With a more intimate group of about 200 delegates that are all stuffed together and crammed together, we've had some good events socially. We had a nice casino night that was hosted by one of the service vendors Through Tubing, and that was a great success. Laughs for shared business cards were shared. People were sharing stories and that's not something that you typically get at one of the larger conferences. This is now my second workshop in the last few months. Of course Saga was there to cover the RTA/PTA Workshop in Galveston, which was very similar in that regard as well. And so when we go home we're not just coming back with information to take to our asset teams and to our companies, as to what the new trends are towards field development and child programs. But we're also going to be going back with a better understanding of the characters and personalities that were here and actually build very strong relationships. Which me and my team noticed as we were circulating around the casino and the restaurants. And I strongly encourage anybody who is considering going to workshop to understand that the value is not just limited to a technical program. And so when I looked at that program committee and I saw the who's who of industry and then I talked to some of my friends in Calgary and in Houston and in Oklahoma City and I understood who was going, that's when I recognized that this was an event that we had to attend.
