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.



What is an ePaper?

It’s an electronic version of a traditional oral presentation in a PowerPoint format available during the conference. They will be conveniently located inside the Exhibit Hall and will be presented LIVE during the conference and in an “on-demand” format.

The choice is yours!  

Either come to a LIVE ePaper presentation OR visit the ‘On-Demand’ monitors to view at your convenience.
