Unconventional Resources Technology Conference

Nalco Champion Booth #151


LOCATION: The Colorado Convention Center, Denver, Colorado

"With record-breaking attendance, more than 300 packed technical presentations, and an incredible industry response at URTeC 2018, there is no doubt that the sixth edition of URTeC was an overwhelming success.

Stemming from the recent surge in the upstream industry and the incredible success in Houston, URTeC 2019 in Denver looks to push the boundaries and continue as the premier event focused on the latest science and technology applied to exploration and development of unconventional resources.  

URTeC unites the disciplines by bringing together the entire asset team together under one roof to connect on all things unconventional. This combination of the world’s leading professional societies has brought both depth and breadth to the technical base of the conference which has attributed to the URTeC’s collaborative platform and innovation exchange sustaining and propelling our industry’s ongoing success."
