As the industry starts its recovery from a long downturn and the resulting stranglehold on unconventional reservoirs, the timing of this meeting on unconventional resource technology couldn’t be better.
With 3,500+ attendees, 300+ technical presentations and 150 exhibiting companies in Austin in 2017, there is no doubt that the fifth edition of URTeC was an overwhelming success.
Stemming from the recent surge in the upstream industry and the incredible success in Austin, URTeC 2018 in Houston looks to push the boundaries and continue as the premier event focused on the latest science and technology applied to exploration and development of unconventional resources.
URTeC unites the disciplines by bringing together the entire asset team together under one roof to connect on all things unconventional. URTeC is comprised of three sponsoring organizations:
- Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE)
- American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)
- Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG)
Plus nine endorsing organizations:
- American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA)
- American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE)
- Association for Iron and Steel Technology (AIST)
- American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)
- American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
- Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration (SME)
- Society of Petroleum Evaluation Engineers (SPEE)
- Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA)
- Minerals, and Metals and Materials Society (TMS)
This combination of the world’s leading professional societies has brought both depth and breadth to the technical base of the conference which has attributed to the URTeC’s collaborative platform and innovation exchange sustaining and propelling our industry’s ongoing success.
