RICHARDSON, Texas, USA (4 November 2009)—The Canadian Society for Unconventional Gas (CSUG) and the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) will present a new, joint meeting, the Canadian Unconventional Resources and International Petroleum Conference, scheduled for 19–21 October 2010 at the BMO Center at Stampede Park in Calgary, AB, Canada.

The new conference combines and broadens topics that were previously covered by CSUG’s Annual Unconventional Gas Conference and the Petroleum Society of Canada’s Canadian International Petroleum Conference (CIPC) to create a premier international event presenting the latest knowledge on finding, developing, and producing unconventional gas and heavy oil in Canada and around the globe.

In August 2009, the Petroleum Society of Canada merged with SPE. The combination of these two important membership groups will result in a dynamic program and strong attendance for this new conference.

The technical program will be planned by members of both societies and will consist of peer-selected, full-length manuscripts as well as presentations. With this format, authors benefit from having their papers included in OnePetro, an online, multisociety library of technical documents and journal articles serving the E&P industry. The papers may also be considered for publication in SPE’s Journal of Canadian Petroleum Technology.

Information about submitting paper proposals for consideration will be available soon at website.
