URTeC 2013

The inaugural Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC) was, by all measures, a tremendous success. Nearly 350 presentations from engineers, geoscientists and other energy professionals from 15 countries and over 170 exhibiting companies interacted with 4,300 plus participants. Over 99% of surveyed attendees said they would recommend URTeC to a co-worker or friend and over 98% said they would return in 2014.

Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC) was developed based on the input from oil company professionals who expressed the importance of geologists, geophysicists, engineers and business managers working together and understanding each other on asset teams developing unconventional resources. URTeC is an historic collaboration between the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG). This is the second time these three societies have come together since OTC began in the late 60’s. There is a combined membership of over 170,000 worldwide.
