Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of The Canadian Institute and my conference co-chair, I invite you to attend the Seventh Annual Shale Gas Symposium, which has grown to become the premier Canadian event of its kind addressing the challenges and opportunities facing all of us who work in this game-changing industry.

Think how far we have come in a few short years: Horn River, Montney, Marcellus, Haynesville and Eagle Ford were all unexploited as recently as 2007. Six years ago shale gas made up just 3% of the natural gas produced in the United States. Last year it was 14%, and as you are reading this right now, shale gas is already up to 22% of total production. By the middle of this new decade we can expect more than half of America’s natural gas will come from shale plays. We are in the midst of a revolution!

Be a part of the conversation as we discuss:

•EMERGING CANADIAN PLAYS and the unique challenges of working them, with contributors including Talisman Energy, Nexen, JUNEX and Questerre Energy
•DEVELOPING AMERICAN PLAYS and the lessons learned in their creation, with input from Republic Energy, Southwestern Energy, and Antero Resources
•EVOLVING ENERGY ECONOMICS that will shape the future of shale gas development in Canada, North America, and around the world, with analysis from Ziff Energy, BENTEK Energy, Core Laboratories, and MBA Petroleum Consultants
•OPERATING CHALLENGES & FLUID ISSUES facing your project at every stage of development, with the help of Amperage Energy, Schlumberger Water Services Canada and a producer-packed speaker faculty
•DRILLING ADVANCES & WELL COMPLETION STRATEGIES: How should you choose the option best suited to your operation? Find out from companies including United Oil & Gas Consulting, BJ Services Company, Roke Technologies Ltd., GeoMechanics International, Halliburton, and Schlumberger

I look forward to welcoming you in January to what promises to be a wonderful opportunity to learn and share the knowledge we all need to build another piece of our shared and prosperous future.
