  TULSA, Oklahoma, April 2, 2013

-- 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, Oklahoma, April 2,2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
