The International Perforating Forum is an independent oil field forum dedicated to the advancement of well perforation technology. Here you will find our meeting agendas, presentations

given at past meetings, registration for upcoming meetings (active 2-3 months prior to the meeting), organization contacts and links.

International Perforating Symposiums have been held since 2008 with the first one being in Houston. This original meeting has led to regional Perforating Symposiums in Kuala Lumpur, Abu

Dhabi, Amsterdam, Bogota and Muscat. In 2014, we have held a Symposium in Galveston on the 12-14 May, and in China in October. BP has sponsored a one day RP67 Perforating Safety

Forum in Houston on the 8th of May – presentations from all these symposia and forums are available on this website. The IPF has been incorporated in Houston, State of Texas , USA in

April 29, 2015 as a non-profit organization. The first International Perforating Symposium in 2015 was held in Amsterdam.

We are pleased to announce that the 2016 International Perforating Symposium will be held in Galveston. See more details here.
