Radisson Hotel, Kaliningrad, Russia

On 25-27 September 2018 SPE held in Kaliningrad an extremely successful Workshop on Hydraulic Fracturing in Russia.

The detailed information is presented below.


The fifth SPE Workshop on Hydraulic Fracturing took place in Kaliningrad. Supported by Oil Energy company, it gathered 160+ delegates from 70+ companies including Baker Hughes, Belorusneft, Bashneft, Gazprom Neft, Geologika, GRP Gorizont, Halliburton, MIPT Engineering center, KazMunaiGaz, LUKOIL, Mirrico, NOV Completion Tools, OMV, PetroWelt Technologies, Rosgeo, Rosneft, Surgutneftegas, Skoltech, Slavneft, Packer Service, Tatneft, Tomskgazprom, Weatherford, Zarubezhneft, Schlumberger and others.

The delegates and committee members mentioned the exceptionally high technical level of presentations and discussions.

The programme committee co-chairs, Sergey Brezitskiy and Mikhail Chertenkov, highlighted the following presentations:

Session 1. New methodology in hydraulic fracturing: Design, Technologies, Approaches
  1. Konstantin Baydyukov, S. Sitdikov,  A.Kushnikov, Rosneft: A comprehensive method for quality evaluation of chemical additives for hydraulic fracturing
  2. Semen Kudrya, Samotlorneftegas: Multistage hydraulic fracturing: new solutions for old problems
Session 2. Multistage hydraulic fracturing in Russia: from pilots to integrated projects
  1. Dmitry Mitrushkin, MIPT Engineering Center: Cross-calibration and cross-validation of hydraulic fracturing modelling parameters and hydrodynamic model
Session 3. Models and software
