The Technical Symposium (TS) is the only industry event that brings together an expert line-up of industry leaders devoted to discussing the most advanced reservoir simulation strategies, tools and technology. Choose from technical sessions that cover a variety of EOR processes, optimization methodologies and case studies. Increase your knowledge of advanced simulation software and make new professional connections that help you become an expert.

Learn from subject matter experts and industry leaders how to:
  • Quickly and easily use CMG’s software
  • Use workflow-driven simulators to save you time and increase your prediction accuracy
  • Increase profitability and make better decisions through simulation technology
  • Use accurate results and optimization tools to confidently make decisions
  • Implement new ideas, approaches and strategies for the best field development plans
  • Apply best practices and solutions taken from examples of challenging scenarios worldwide


Hosted by CMG’s Research & Development team, the TS provides highly technical content and real-life application of industry-leading reservoir simulation software to further the use of simulation. Since the first TS in 1978, more than 2300 attendees, from over 25 countries have attended.
