See Why Everyone is Talking about URTeC.

Join more than 4,300 oil and gas professionals for the Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC) 2014, the industry’s only integrated event for unconventional resource teams. A brainchild of the world’s leading oil and gas professional societies, URTeC’s inaugural event was launched in 2013 as a collaborative vision of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG). The mission? To be the first industry platform where key disciplines can come together in an integrated environment to learn about the latest technologies, trends and solutions for optimization of unconventional plays.

The industry asked and URTeC delivered.

URTeC was launched in response to industry demand for an event that united geologists, geophysicists, engineers and business managers to gain mutual understanding of each of the disciplines to foster an asset team approach to E&P operations. Bringing together a broad spectrum of specialties, URTeC provided an unprecedented opportunity for cross-discipline collaboration and information exchange.

And the 2013 response was overwhelming:

  • More than 4,300 oil and gas professionals and 173 exhibiting companies participated in the inaugural 2013 event
  • 89% of survey respondents said they will attend again in 2014
  • 100% of survey respondents will recommend the event to a friend or colleague
  • 100% found URTeC useful for their company and job
  • 72% said that URTeC provided more integrated content than any other conference
  • 91% of survey respondents thought the program succeeded in creating integrated sessions of interest to multiple disciplines
  • 100% of survey respondents felt that the URTeC concept was critically needed for the future advancement of the unconventional sector

The integrated learning platform focused exclusively on the intersection point between engineers, geoscientists, land men and all asset team members to produce successful unconventional plays.


“As an initial effort to bring together multiple disciplines, it was a great success and hope we will see more like it.”

– Eric Reigle, Newfield
Houston, TX

“The wealth of information that I attained because it was specific to unconventional plays rather than discipline specific far surpassed most other conferences that I have attended in the past.”

-- Nicole Kennedy, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation
The Woodlands, TX

“Multi-disciplined professional society conferences such as this are very welcome…and way over due.  We must do more of this to promote more effective integration of the disciplines and collaboration.”

– ConocoPhillips
