Unconventional oil and gas have come to dominate the exploration and development scene in Western Canada since 2005, much as they have in the US. As usually happens with new play ideas and trends, appraisal and development have generated a broad spectrum of results in Canadian Unconventional plays. The Energy East Pipeline involves the conversion of an existing TransCanada gas pipeline to oil service, as well as the construction of 1500 km of new pipeline. With a capacity of 1.1 million B/D, it will eliminate the need to import foreign crude oil to refineries in Quebec and New Brunswick.
The SPE Unconventional Resources Conference is co-located with the SPE Heavy Oil Technical Conference, and the two conferences are sharing one exhibit floor. As an exhibitor, you can maximize your time by conversing with customers and potential clients from both the Heavy Oil and Unconventional Resources sector. Share your company’s unique expertise with a targeted group of experts. Acquire valuable sales leads and customer feedback. Payments should be made to our Canada office Space is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
SPE Canada is excited to bring together our two premier conferences, the Unconventional Resources Conference and the Heavy Oil Technical Conference, with a shared exhibit floor to maximize your industry exposure. Showcase your products and services to a knowledgeable audience of decision makers ready to see the latest technologies and techniques! Find products or services that will solve a problem or help you save money. Exhibit where the industry's top decision-makers are present. Discover everything you need to know to manage your booth.

This course covers the fundamental principles concerning how hydraulic fracturing treatments can be used to stimulate oil and gas wells. It includes discussions on how to select wells for stimulation, what controls fracture propagation, fracture width, etc., how to develop data sets, and how to calculate fracture dimensions. The course also covers information concerning fracturing fluids, propping agents, and how to design and pump successful fracturing treatments. Learn more about training courses being offered. Current and future SPE Section and Student Chapter leaders are invited to engage and share. Every attendee leaves energised with a full list of ideas and a support network of fellow leaders. Those sections and student chapters actively participating in this workshop have consistently been recognized with awards as the best in SPE. SPE Cares is a global volunteering drive aimed at promoting, supporting and participating in community services at the SPE section and student chapter’s level. On its official launch this year at ATCE Dubai, SPE Cares will conduct a “Give a Ghaf” Tree Planting Programme to help preserve Ghaf’s cultural and ecological heritage. The Ghaf tree is an indigenous species, specific to UAE, Oman and Saudi Arabia. It is a drought tolerant, evergreen tree that can survive a harsh desert environment. The initiative not only aims to hold events/activities at ATCE, but also recognise community service that SPE members are already conducting in their respective student chapters and professional sections. The KEY Club, open daily, is an exclusive lounge for key SPE members. The lounge is open to those with 25 years or more of continuous membership, Century Club members, current and former SPE Board officers and directors, Honorary and Distinguished Members, as well as this year’s SPE International Award Winners and Distinguished Lecturers. DSATS (SPE’s Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section) will hold a half-day symposium featuring keynote presentations on urban automation. This symposium will explore technologies being used in developing smart cities through the automation of their infrastructure, transportation systems, energy distribution, water systems, street lighting, refuse collection, etc. These efforts rely on many of the same tools needed for drilling systems automation yielding increased efficiencies, lower maintenance and reduced emissions. Their knowledge and experience can guide the path being travelled by the oilfield drilling industry.
Candidate selection is the process of identifying and selecting wells for stimulation treatment, which have the capacity of production improvement and better economic return. One of the first steps in the candidate selection process is the review of all well logs and records, reservoir characteristics, and any previous workover information. Drilling records are screened for mud type, fluid losses, kill pills, completion fluids, and completion type. Production history also used to detect formation damage in the process of candidate selection. A sudden decline in productivity is a good indication that the well could be damaged; however, the user needs to be aware of the offset wells reservoir properties.
This one-day course provides a robust framework for assessing uncertainty and risk in unconventional projects. It begins by summarizing the key discipline-specific workflows and work products needed to characterize your project. It then introduces 1) statistics as a basis for applying probabilistic techniques, 2) approaches for estimating key parameters under uncertainty, and 3) techniques to mitigate bias in your work. The course then turns to using aggregation and its derivative products (trumpet plots, confidence curves, and sequential aggregation plots) to quantify the optimal number of appraisal wells and track your drilling progress. The course concludes by applying what’s been learned within a staged approach in order to expose capital incrementally and make good decisions along the way about whether to continue funding the project.
Some of the trends and issues related to water management for tight oil and gas are discussed, including environmental, sustainability, and legislative issues associated with water handling for hydraulic fracturing.

The SPE Canada Unconventional Resources Conference: where E&P professionals came to learn the latest in technologies, challenges and solutions for developing and producing difficult reservoirs. A shared exhibit floor meant access to two target markets for the price of one exhibit booth. Instead of purchasing two sponsorships, one package reached two separate conferences.
