Online registration remains open for a conference that’s been called the “best of the best” for its technical program and cutting-edge approach to 21st century exploration in the world’s most challenging but potentially rewarding environment.
The second Arctic Technology Conference will be held Dec. 3-5 in Houston at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
More than 1,400 attendees from 23 countries attended the inaugural ATC in 2011, and pre-registration totals indicate this year’s meeting could be even larger.
ATC is built upon the Offshore Technology Conference’s model of offering a multidisciplinary approach to its technical program, which features nearly 150 papers and posters.
“This ATC is a conference you don’t want to miss if you work the Arctic,” said AAPG Honorary member and ATC chair John Hogg.
“The Arctic is the final frontier for oil and gas exploration and development,” he said. “Our second ATC takes what we learned from our inaugural conference and builds a conference with more focus on flow assurance, oil spill cleanup and half a dozen high quality panels on key Arctic issues.
“The ATC conference brings together the best of the best,” Hogg added, “industry geoscientists and engineers, academics and executives, to learn, share and meet other Arctic experts.”
AAPG’s official representatives on the ATC committee also include Michael Enachescu, MGM Energy Corp.; Don Gautier, U.S. Geological Survey; and David Schoderbek, Conoco-Phillips.
The conference will begin with a plenary session, co-chaired by Hogg and Han Tiebout, offering talks on:
