Halker Consulting vice president of operations, Travis Hutchinson, will present his technical paper on the challenges associated with gathering systems this week at Thinking Beyond the Drill Bit: Onshore Solutions, to be held Thursday, Sept. 25 at Sports Authority Field in Denver at 5pm.

The talk will focus on answering the question: “How can gathering systems be designed and operated in the most efficient manner?” Hutchinson will also discuss integrated development planning, the impact of operations at the wellhead on gathering systems, as well as the benefits and challenges of upstream/midstream integration.

The free event is sponsored by oil and gas engineering firm, Assured Flow Solutions, and is advertised as a technical symposium that will bring together  “the operations, facilities, and service providers to discuss the emerging challenges associated with increased well counts and productivity throughout the resource plays in the continental US. A shifting focus from resource evaluation to resource monetization brings about new issues that require both engineers and executives to think beyond the drill bit.”
