Ken Crawford, General Manager for Aquaterra Energy Asia-Pacific, will co-chair a sell-out Applied Technology Workshop on Marginal Field Development at the invitation of the President of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).

Crawford has outstanding knowledge and expertise in marginal field development technology and, as well as co-chairing the event, will present on the topic of ‘Rig Installed Conductor Supported Platforms’ during a session on Monday 17th June.

The workshop, taking place in Langkawi, Malaysia, starts on 17th June and will run until 19th June.  The organisers are expecting around 120 international delegates to attend.  The three day workshop will aim to promote understanding of the complexities involved in developing marginal fields with a focus on technological requirements and commercial viability.  Topics will also include risk management in marginal field development, managing subsurface uncertainties and drilling and well completions considerations.

Crawford commented: “It is an honour to be invited by SPE to co-chair this event as well as helping to develop the agenda, with a focus on examining elements of current technology in a detailed and practical manner, in order to increase the knowledge and application of those technologies across the industry.”
