There is no doubt that the fifth edition of the Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC) held, 24-26 July 2017 in Austin, Texas was an overwhelming success. With the industry beginning to recover from a long downturn and the resulting stranglehold on unconventional reservoirs, the timing of this premier meeting on unconventional resource technology couldn’t have been better.

“I was always looking for a deal where I could get some slice of the pie.” That’s AAPG Emeritus Member Terry Mather, this year’s Norman H. Foster Outstanding Explorer Award winner, talking about motivation, talking about his life in exploration (specifically wildcatting), talking about the excitement, and talking about – at times – the letdown, where there wasn’t a slice of the pie.

Explorer President’s Column

 

Petroleum is our lifeblood. Where oil and gas flow, so do the fortunes of our Members. Our industry and way of life depend on hydrocarbons. We must lead the way to find and produce energy.

The primary goal of the AAPG Astrogeology Committee is to emphasize the use of geosciences in the development of off-world exploration energy and other natural resources for development in the foreseeable future. This is under the guidance and input provided by previous NASA geologist astronauts, Dr. Harrison “Jack” Schmitt and Dr. James “Jim” Reilly and by industry professionals.
