URTeC - Unconventional Resources Technology Conference

Increase recovery at a lower cost per BOE

Join us at URTeC in booth 2433 to learn more about our unconventional solutions and how they can help you increase recovery at a lower cost per BOE.

Inside the booth you’ll learn about our latest technology solutions through live theater presentations. Our experts will also be onsite discussing the various tools and techniques used to unearth greater profitability.

Whether you’re evaluating new plays or wanting to increase recovery from existing fields, Halliburton can help you identify and access the most productive zones more efficiently.  

We look forward to seeing you in Houston!

Come experience our most innovative technologies by visiting booth 513.  There you'll be able to view our technologies up close and learn from our experts how we can help you increase recovery at a lower cost per BOE.

CoreVault® System

CoreVault® System

Keeps rock samples in a sealed container, so 100% of the fluid in the core sample will be preserved for analysis.
DecisionSpace® Geosciences 10ep

DecisionSpace® Geosciences 10ep

Enhances subsurface insight of complex reservoirs, helping you transform marginal prospects into long-term producers at lower costs per BOE.
FracInsight® Service

FracInsight® Service

Helps optimize stage and cluster placement in the best fracability and productivity index area, leading to improved connectivity, enhanced fracture coverage, and greater EUR.
Ingrain CoreHD® & CoreHD® Plus

Ingrain CoreHD® & CoreHD® Plus

Provides early visibility into the critical properties of whole core through continuous, high-resolution rock property logs in relevant timeframes.

Integrated Sensor Diagnostics

Combines far-field and near-wellbore sensors with proven engineering practices to solve your unconventional challenges.
MicroScout® Plus Service

MicroScout® Plus Service

Improves production rates by providing a propping agent small enough to prop open secondary fractures during production.
Radian™ Azimuthal Gamma Ray & Inclination Service

Radian™ Azimuthal Gamma Ray & Inclination Service

Provides real-time, high-quality borehole images of the reservoir’s structure and trajectory, enabling quicker geosteering decisions for better well placement.
SentinelCem™ Cement

SentinelCem™ Cement

Cure losses and enable further drilling with Halliburton SentinelCem™ cement. The solution is most applicable for severe-to-total losses that cannot be cured by particulate material additives.
SPIDR® - Self Powered Intelligent Data Retriever

SPIDR® - Self Powered Intelligent Data Retriever

Delivers pressure transient results from the surface at up to 99.8% accuracy rate.
Stega™ Efficient Layout Technique

Stega™ Efficient Layout Technique

Provides operators with efficiency gains totaling more than 10% in some applications, by simply changing cutter-location—with no loss in diamond volume or durability of cutting structure.

Presenting 10 papers, Halliburton experts will cover a wide range of topics. View our full list of conference papers below.
