URTeC 2013: Major Joint Venture Launched

American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

Three of the world’s leading oil and gas professional societies will launch the Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC) Aug. 12-14, 2013, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.

A joint venture between AAPG, the Society of Petroleum Engineers and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists, URTeC will bring together for the first time the key disciplines and technologies engaged in the development of North American unconventional resource plays.

“URTeC will offer multidisciplinary technical and applied science sessions of broad interest,” said SPE President Ganesh Thakur, “and the accompanying exhibition will showcase cutting-edge developments in applications such as horizontal drilling, fracture technology, testing, logging and geophysics.”

“Successful resource plays demand a multidisciplinary approach; it’s the way we’re all working,” said SEG President Bob Hardage. “Geology, geophysics and engineering are essential components, but individual expertise is no longer enough. In order to effectively develop these resources, our members must collaborate across disciplines. URTeC is designed to support that objective.”

The URTeC concept was developed with direction from an industry advisory group led by representatives from Chesapeake, Devon, Anadarko, Shell, Statoil, ConocoPhillips, Schlumberger and many others.

“The oil and gas industry has been encouraging AAPG, SPE and SEG to collaborate in this area for some time,” said AAPG President Paul Weimer. “Although our societies frequently work together, URTeC may rank as our most significant joint venture in the United States since we all joined the Offshore Technology Conference in the late 1960s.”

Collectively, the three societies represent more than 170,000 members worldwide.

Recruitment for the URTeC technical program committee is under way. For more information and/or to participate on the committee visit the URTeC website.
