Registration is now open for the 4th annual Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC) to be held Aug. 1-3 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.
Sponsored by AAPG, the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), the multidisciplinary conference and exhibition has become one of the leading events for unconventional exploration, drilling and production.
The technical program will be announced soon and will include presentations and posters from industry professionals that will share new concepts, case studies, characterizations, forecasting and more.
Short courses will also be held during the event, presented by the industry’s top experts from a range of fields.
Two field trips have also been planned for URTeC. One will showcase outcrops of the Woodford Shale in southern Oklahoma. The second will examine examples of tight-oil reservoirs in Colorado.
URTeC also serves as a helpful platform for interacting with fellow professionals from a wide gamut of companies. A variety of networking opportunities are in the works including breakfasts, breaks and receptions in addition to an exhibition hall.
The exhibition area will boast more than 175 companies showcasing their ideas, products and solutions.
On average, 3,500 attendees from 40 countries attend URTeC.
This year, eight new supporting organizations have joined URTeC, significantly expanding the event’s reach and audience and intensifying its multidisciplinary focus.
