The technical program is in place for the third annual Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC), which will be held July 20-22 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, and there's still time to save $100 by registering before June 8.
URTeC is the industry's leading multidisciplinary conference on unconventional resources and is hosted jointly by AAPG, the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG).
This year's meeting will be the first time URTeC is being held in San Antonio.
Last year, SPE, AAPG and SEG announced record attendance of more than 5,200 oil and gas professionals at the second annual URTeC held in August in Denver - growth of some 20 percent over the inaugural event in 2013, also in Denver.
More than 230 companies exhibited at the event, showcasing the latest products, technologies and services for successful unconventional play development.
"With a record number of abstracts submitted, URTeC is becoming widely recognized as the premier sharing venue for the cross-disciplinary best practices that define success in unconventional plays," said AAPG program co-chair Skip Rhodes, who is director of unconventional resources for Pioneer Natural Resources.
The highly-rated science and technology exchanges in the first two URTeC events have set a precedent for the URTeC 2015 Technical Program, which boasts more than 300 papers from geologists, geophysicists, petroleum engineers and other energy professionals presenting on innovations, best practices and experiences in integrated approaches for North American unconventional resource plays.
There also are five field trips, nine short courses and at this date more than 180 exhibitors expected.
The event has been designed to fill the unique need for a peer-reviewed, science-based unconventional resources conference that will take an asset team approach to development of unconventional resource plays - similar to how oil and gas professionals work in today's market.
