Unconventional plays are producing hundreds of wells within relatively small spaces, and all are cranking out more data than any human could possibly track. It’s a fact that has driven the oil and gas industry to search for technology that can intelligently quantify such data and increase the odds of a discovery.

I find it ironic that George Mitchell, the “father of hydraulic fracturing technology” (aka, “father of fracing”), a technology that so many people fear or hate because of its perceived negative environmental impact, was so passionate about the environment and sustainability. This is a message we need to convey.

The second annual Unconventional Resources Technology Conference, which once again threw a multidiscipline spotlight on new approaches, technology and science being used to develop unconventional plays, attracted more than 5,000 attendees– a 25 percent increase over last year’s inaugural event – to Denver’s Colorado Convention Center in late August.

It was a collective sigh of relief heard ‘round the state. Two months ago, Colorado Gov. John W. Hickenlooper managed to pull off what many call the compromise of the season – the political season, that is, in a state that has been dragged into a months-long, messy battle between the oil and gas industry and politicians and activists who oppose drilling on various levels.

VG Abstract

This is a less-technical education topic. It can be condensed to an hour or given as 2 two-hour sessions. It stresses selected controversial aspects of fracking that touch some combination of environment and economics and includes a short video of how fracking is done.
