SPE Workshop: Show Me the Money! Moving the Duvernay from Appraisal to Commerciality 19 - 20 Mar 2019 Hudson Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Thank you for attending the SPE Workshop.
Plan your attendance to other SPE events in your region or technical area.


In the past decade, industry has demonstrated that the Duvernay is one of the premier liquids-rich shale plays in North America, with the potential to produce roughly 3.4 billion barrels of marketable oil, 6.3 billion barrels of natural gas liquids, and 77 Tcf of gas (NEB, 2017). 

With more than 900 horizontal wells drilled to date, activity in the Duvernay has rapidly accelerated over the past 5 years, as many operators move from appraising their land blocks to commercial development.
