RGL Reservoir Management is scheduled to present four technical papers at next spring’s 2020 SPE Canada Heavy Oil Conference in Calgary on March 18 and 19th. The co-located SPE Canada Heavy Oil and Unconventional Resources Conferences are the premier platforms in North America to enable the exchange of information through case studies, technical advancements, and business strategies that allow energy projects to deliver favorable returns at prevailing oil prices.
 
SPE conferences highlight elite industry work in North America. RGL’s team of sand and flow control experts will present papers focused on the importance of sand control evaluation testing as well as utilizing new methods to monitor wellbores and reservoirs.
