The integrated event for unconventional resource teams.
By any measure, the Unconventional Resources Technology Conferences (URTeC) is a qualified success. With 4,500 attendees on average from 40 countries and more than 200 exhibiting companies, URTeC has quickly become the premier science-based conference and marketplace for unconventional exploration, drilling and production ideas and technologies.
Jointly organized by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), URTeC connects the key technical and business professionals deciding where, how and when plays will be developed and wells drilled every day. It’s the only event leveraging expertise from all technical backgrounds and focusing on the asset team approach to successful field development.
One of the industry’s most interactive networking forums for companies across all segments of the unconventional market
An unparalleled, integrated audience of qualified decision makers with whom to build new business relationships with and generate leads
A platform for showcasing your products, technologies and solutions with more than 200 exhibiting companies

Join more than 230 exhibitors for the industry’s most anticipated platform for uniting key disciplines in an integrated environment to learn about the latest technologies, trends and solutions for optimization of unconventional plays.
Since its founding in 1917, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists has been a pillar of the worldwide scientific community. The original purpose of AAPG, to foster scientific research, to advance the science of geology, to promote technology, and to inspire high professional conduct, still guides the Association today.
The Society of Exploration Geophysicists is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the science of applied geophysics and the education of geophysicists. SEG, founded in 1930, fosters the expert and ethical practice of geophysics in the exploration and development of natural resources, in characterizing the near surface, and in mitigating earth hazards. The Society, which has more than 32,000 members (and growing) in 125 countries, representing 52 sections and associated societies in 31 countries, and 338 student chapters in 66 countries, fulfills its mission through its publications, conferences, forums, websites, and educational opportunities. SEG is proud to have achieved so many milestones during its relatively short history of supporting the global geoscience community.
In 1957, the organization was officially founded as SPE, a constituent society of AIME. SPE became a separately incorporated organization in 1985.
We are the largest individual-member organization serving managers, engineers, scientists and other professionals worldwide in the upstream segment of the oil and gas industry.
More than 143,000 members in 147 countries participate in 199 sections and 337 university chapters. SPE’s membership includes more than 50,000 student members.
