Description
The Society of Petroleum Engineers and the Mid-Continent Section will host the Nineteenth Symposium on Improved Oil Recovery in Tulsa, Oklahoma from April 12th through 16th, 2014. This symposium series, which began in 1978, continues its long history as the Society of Petroleum Engineers premier meeting on improved oil recovery. The theme of the 2014 Symposium is ?Explore the Possibilities.? This reflects the significant technological developments we are seeing in all aspects of traditional IOR applications. Recently, we are also experiencing IOR contribution in the development of unconventional oil reservoirs. Over the last 40 years, the number of IOR projects and the associated incremental oil recovery has also increased. This development has taken place in spite of technological risk, political risk, and most importantly price risk. This clearly demonstrates that the IOR practitioners are willing to take the long term view and will continue to seek new fields and new technologies to maximize recoverable oil.

Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
