The technical program is now in place and registrations are being accepted for the second annual Unconventional Resources Technology (URTeC) Conference, which will be held Aug. 25-27 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.
URTeC, hosted jointly by AAPG, the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), is the industry’s only integrated event for unconventional resource teams.
“It’s the only conference where the three big professional societies come together,” said AAPG Honorary member Randy Ray of R3 Exploration Corp., who also co-chairs the URTeC technical program committee as a representative of SEG.
