URTeC: 

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.

ePapers Sidebar

ePapers

In addition to the 193 oral presentations, URTeC will also feature 66 ePapers to enhance the conference experience.  

What is an ePaper?

It’s an electronic version of a traditional oral presentation in a PowerPoint format available during the conference. They are 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.
