Registration Officially Opens for Unconventional Resources Technology 
Conference (URTeC),  12-14 August 2013, Denver 
Joint venture between Society of Petroleum Engineers, American Association of 
Petroleum Geologists and Society of Exploration Geophysicists offers 
collaborative, one-of-a-kind event across multiple disciplines in the 
geoscience industry. 
TULSA, Okla., April 2, 2013 /CNW/ - The Society of Petroleum Engineers, 
American Association of Petroleum Geologists and Society of Exploration 
Geophysicists announced today that registration is officially open for the 
Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC), 12-14 Aug. 2013, in 
Denver.  Attendees may register beginning today for the conference and housing 
online at 
URTeC is the latest joint venture between the three most highly regarded 
professional associations in the geoscience industry, featuring a technical 
program covering 20 topics related to unconventional exploration and 
production, 340 technical presentations, six interactive panels, an exhibition 
floor, and numerous topical breakfasts and luncheons.  Developed with 
direction from an industry advisory group led by representatives from 
Chesapeake, Devon, Anadarko, Shell, Statoil, ConocoPhillips, Schlumberger and 
many others, URTeC is designed for collaborative learning and networking 
between the essential components required to develop unconventional resources 
successfully—geology, geophysics and engineering. 
"This is a landmark event that brings together a multi-disciplined audience to 
share critical information and the latest innovations and techniques in the 
world of unconventional exploration and production," said Luis Baez, technical 
program committee co-chair and BG Group executive. "There's no question that 
the global energy landscape is dramatically changing, so it's vital that 
geoscientists engage with each other to understand not only the roles we each 
play in this industry but how we can learn from each other." 
Scott W. Tinker, director of the Bureau of Economic Geology and the State 
Geologist of Texas, will moderate the opening plenary session entitled, 
Unconventional Resources:  Breakthrough Integration Changes Everything.  
Tinker's presentation will explore the foundational scientific, technical and 
business practices that, when leveraged by innovative integration in a 
multi-disciplinary environment, "move the needle" across the value chain of 
conventional resource identification, assessment and monetization.  Panelists 
will include Scott D. Sheffield, chief executive officer, Pioneer Natural 
Resources; John Richels, president and chief executive officer, Devon Energy 
Corporation; Vello Kuuskraa, president, Advanced Resources International; and 
William M. Scoggins, president, Colorado School of Mines. 
Other presentations will take an in-depth look at the latest technologies 
transforming the future of exploration and production, government regulations, 
and much more. 
The URTeC exhibition hall will include service- and equipment-related 
suppliers showcasing cutting-edge developments in applications like horizontal 
drilling, fracture technology, testing, logging and geophysics.  Due to the 
cross-section of industry professionals attending, exhibit space is quickly 
filling up, but those companies interested in exhibiting still have an 
opportunity to get in on the ground floor of this unique event.
