SPE ICoTA 25th European Well Intervention Conference - ICoTA 25: Industry Collaboration to Restore, Safeguard & Optimise Production Across Europe



13th - 14th November 2019

Venue: The Event Complex Aberdeen, East Burn Road, Stoneywood, Aberdeen, AB21 9FX

Call for Abstracts - Deadline 22 July 2019

Abstracts are now open for the 25th SPE ICoTA European Well Intervention Conference. We want to hear your solutions, technologies and case histories that address Operator issues and the key themes from the benchmark UK 2018 Oil and Gas Authority Report.   

Companies are invited to submit abstracts of no more than 200 words for presentations lasting 20 minutes or for 5 minute ‘Techbytes’ (shorter sales-oriented pitches) which address the following Operator issues and OGA key themes:

Operator issues

  • What are the low cost optimisation techniques?
  • Intervention of Subsea Wells using LWI
  • Demonstrating the value of data gathering & surveillance to identify opportunities to the decision makers
  • Improving efficiency for well preparation and pre-rig work for Well Abandonments
  • Remedial sand control
  • Intervening in hostile corrosive environments – HP/HT/Deep wells/Heavy Oil
  • What new technology options are out there?
  • Well stimulation methods which uses well intervention techniques, including pumping, chemicals and washes
  • Access to platforms. How do you minimize your people and equipment footprints
  • Addressing the risk of failure of an intervention or well reinstatement

OGA Key Themes


  • Re add perforations
  • Acid simulations
  • Water and Gas shut offs
  • Gaslift optimisation
  • Foam lift installation
  • Downhole pump optimisation/refit


  • Scale Squeezes
  • Regular Washes
  • Solvent treatments
  • Tubing cleanouts


  • Tree wellhead repairs
  • SC, SSV or DHSV, repairs or installation
  • Downhole pump replacements
  • Fishing Jobs
  • Gas lift repairs
  • Tubing or completion changeout repairs
  • Unloading



The 25th SPE ICoTA European Well Intervention Conference is the largest and longest established conference of its kind in Europe and is attended by a strong mix of disciplines including intervention, integrity, production, completions and subsurface engineers.

Following on from the success of the original Operator stand last year, we are building a larger pavilion to offer you the chance to collaborate, network and promote new and established techniques in intervention technology to a much wider group of Operators.

“You will not get a better opportunity to meet a group of like-minded peers, all in the same room, at the same time to discuss your challenges and hear many different solutions and see the different types of technology available to you.”
