With the new moratorium on off-shore and deep water drilling, coupled with the prolonged lull in natural gas prices, the energy industry is now turning its attention to a well-known resource potential: Tight Oil. The same technology, multi-stage fracturing of horizontal wells, that allowed for the development of unconventional natural gas shales and tight sands in Northeastern B.C. and Alberta is promising to unlock vast opportunities to increase recovery from mature brownfield and greenfield tight oil plays in Western Canada.

But what is the true potential for tight oil in Canada? What are the emerging issues facing the industry? And what will take to succeed in developing these plays? Insight Information’s TIGHT OIL FORUM will give you a timely overview of this exciting opportunity and help you assess the strategic and practical challenges to unlocking tight oil in Canada.

We will start this conference by taking a close look at the economic viability and potential for tight oil development with an evaluation of the energy markets and global forecasts for oil prices. This will be followed
by an exploration of resource possibilities that exist in Canada. You will then hear from industry experts in exploration and production, who will examine best practices in how this resource can be extracted; analyze the
scope of current technology; the associated costs; assess environmental impacts and ways to minimize them; and what production and recovery rates to expect when operating within these limits.

The 2010 Tight Oil Forum brings together many experts and industry practitioners to review the opportunities for resource recovery in an informative and engaging setting.
