SPE to Deliver a Panel and Technical Session at the 2015 GeoConvention Conference

GeoConvention is an opportunity to learn about the latest geology, geophysics and well-log analysis technology, see the latest products and processes at the exhibits on the convention floor, and network with your colleagues from Canada and the world.

As a silver Sponsor, SPE will organize a three part session during the afternoon of the 4th of May. The session begins with a panel focusing on subsurface risk management and caprock competency and is followed by two technical sessions covering thermal SAGD recovery and the deliverability behavior of unconventional reservoirs. Hear experts discuss ‎the technological innovations that drive and shape both the future of heavy ‎oil/oilsands and have the potential to improve the economics of North America’s rapidly developing unconventional tight/shale oil and gas plays. Best practices and pioneering methods to mitigate current challenges will also be covered in this session.

Find more about this conference and plan to attend today. SPE members can register to attend this event at the member price.

Who Runs SPE in Canada, Anyway?

Sometimes I get questions regarding the SPE structure in Canada. People ask; “What is the difference between the Calgary Section and the Trust Fund?”, or “Who directs scholarships given to the University of Regina?”, or “Why is JCPT so heavily heavy-oil focussed and not representative of Calgary’s unconventional community?” Read the complete article.
