Calgary, AB – June 26, 2018 –Continuing to bring Canadian technology to the world, RGL sand control expertise will be presented in the Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago this week. For the first time, the team will be sharing a technical paper at the SPE Trinidad and Tobago Section Energy Resources Conference.

The conference and exhibition, whose theme is “Forging Ahead: Changes, Challenges & Opportunities,” will focus on maximization of productivity and recovery of oil and gas through the integration of people, technology, assets, and organizations. The three-day event proposes to feature more than 100 technical paper presentations, posters, and panel sessions covering all aspects of the upstream industry; exhibition showcasing relevant products, services and technology.

“Determination of Particle Shape and Size Distribution from Micro X-ray CT Scans for Petrophysical Evaluation and Sand Control Design SPE-191193-MS” will be presented by Technical Sales and Completions Engineer Alberto Andres Uzcategui. RGL’s presentation is part of the Reservoir Evaluation session led by Chairperson David Alexander of the University of Trinidad & Tobago.

The exhibition will provide an opportunity for the operating companies to explain what they do and how they add value to the local industry and the country. In addition, companies can display their latest equipment and technology in the production of oil and gas and also to develop business opportunities. The exhibition will also provide an excellent forum for networking, which is important for solving the technical challenges which we presently face in our industry.

The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is a professional organization whose members worldwide are engaged in energy resource development and production. SPE is a key resource for the dissemination of technical information related to oil and gas exploration and production.

The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago is the southernmost island in the Caribbean archipelago. It is located just off the north-eastern coast of the South America mainland. The capital city, Port of Spain, is the business centre of the Caribbean, housing the headquarters for a number of local businesses, a myriad of restaurants and nightlife entertainment like no other. The sister isle of Tobago is considerably smaller in size. An abundance of natural reserves in oil and natural gas has made significant contributions to the strength of the Trinidad and Tobago economy—making it one of the strongest economies in the region.
