Unconventional Resources Technology Conference accepting papers focusing on integrated solutions for asset teams.


URTeC will help asset teams hit the sweet spot.

The Call for Papers deadline for the Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC) has been extended through 12 December 2012. Organizers seek papers from petroleum engineers, geologists, geophysicists and other professionals interested in sharing innovations, best practices and experiences in integrated approaches for North American unconventional resource plays. Papers will be accepted online, through the deadline.

Several hundred papers have been received to date and activity continues to increase after recent URTeC promotions at the SEG Annual Meeting in Las Vegas and the SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition in San Antonio. Nearly 70 companies have signed on to exhibit at URTeC, including industry leaders such as Saudi Aramco, Halliburton, TGS, I H S, Schlumberger, ION Geophysical and more.

URTeC, 12-14 August 2013 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, will for the first time bring together the key disciplines and technologies engaged in the development of North American resource plays. The program includes 20 themes applicable to unconventional resources and appeals to engineers, geologists and geophysicists, including:

  •     Unconventional Project Development
  •     Unconventional Shale Plays
  •     Flow Mechanics in Tight Reservoirs
  •     Laboratory Methodologies
  •     Reservoir Monitoring
  •     Drilling Optimization

A complete list of topics and the Call for Papers is available online at
Authors whose papers are accepted will present at a conference supported by three of the world’s largest scientific associations — SPE (Society of Petroleum Engineers), AAPG (American Association of Petroleum Geologists) and SEG (Society of Exploration Geophysicists).
