Smart coatings and smart fluids can be synonymous with cost-effective solutions in the most demanding of applications and performance requirements. The key is to understand structure-composition-property relationships in materials. The petroleum industry is one demanding industry that requires the best of materials 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) Training with a renowned chemistry professor and polymer scientist. 2) Listen to other experts from the coatings industries, chemical companies, and petroleum companies. A summary of the important points to be covered include:

- Smart coatings and stimuli-responsive coatings.

- Corrosion and scaling inhibition.

 Advanced ceramics and metal oxide coatings

- Chemical additives and inhibitors

- New polymer materials for non-metallics

- Proppant resin coatings for hydraulic fracturing

- Cement formulation: additives and polymers

- Nanocomposite and nanofluids formulation

- New surfactants for flow assurance and well stimulation fluids

- Rheology modifiers

- State-of-the-art analytical characterization methods


IMPORTANT COVERAGE- 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 and reverse engineeringThe event programming is spaced evenly with tutorial sessions to introduce the fundamentals of important topics to participants .

This will be a two-day training and premiere networking event that will draw participants from industry and academia.
