Smart chemistry can be synonymous with cost-effective solutions in the most demanding of applications and performance requirements in the oil and gas industry. The key is to understand structure-composition-property relationships. The use of nanotechnology is now a viable approach. The petroleum industry requires the best of materials at the right cost to ensure high productivity and yield from commissioned assets. The aim of this conference is to bring together a community of scientists, engineers, and solution providers: 1) Learn from experts from the oilfield service companies, chemical companies, testing experts, and major oil & gas operators. A summary of the important points to be covered include:
- Smart and stimuli responsive fluids
- Nanotechnology and Oilfield Chemicals
- New chemistry, synthesis, and formulation
- Corrosion and scaling chemical inhibitors
- Flow assurance and control
- Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and well stimulation fluids
- New polymer materials for non-metallics
- Proppant resin coatings for hydraulic fracturing
- Cement formulation: additives and polymers
- High performance polymer materials and additive manufacturing
- State-of-the-art analytical characterization methods

Chemical supply chain relationships, what can we learn from the paint and rubber industries? Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) in oil & gas chemical products, Proper testing protocols and standards - how to talk with oil & gas companies? Creating a high value-added additive through product re-engineering and formulation adjustment.

Drilling Fluids, completion fluids,mitigation of corrosion and scaling under the most demanding of conditions- Flow assurance problems and asset integrity management- High performance polymer and surfactant additives- Standards testing for HTHP and high brine conditions- Principles of chemical product design, testing and reverse engineering. The event programming is spaced evenly with tutorial sessions to introduce the fundamentals of important topics to participants.

3-D Printing for Oil & Gas, Nanomaterials, Superhydrophobic Coatings for Oil/water Separations, Designing Smart Proppants
