Winning the Unconventional Game

Is smart or engineered completions really a thing? Does a geometric design provide the best economic outcome in full-field development?

This panel will pair technical expertise with economists to contrast the different approaches applied achieving profitable unconventional reservoir development.

Discussion will be centered on well completions, including fracture design, well spacing, reservoir properties, technology pads, and how it all rolls up to impact the bottom line.  Join the conversation by engaging and sharing current trends from across the WCSB, and comparisons to the approach of our partners south of the border.
