Since we held the UK Shale Summit 2012 - the UK's first ever unconventional congress - in September last year...

...the industry has seen some significant progress developments including demonstrations of regulatory support, geological estimates and approvals of new drilling plans.

UK Shale: Making It Happen is the place where decisions are made, solutions are identified and progress is achieved in regards to developing our country's precious energy resources.You can expect the following from this year's congress:

Pure Shale Focus: Shale Gas & Oil is the hottest prospect for onshore operators in the UK and for this reason, the entire two day conference will focus purely on how to take unconventional shale resources towards commercialisation

Industry Led: Speakers at this conference are only from E&P companies, government and regulators. We are hosting presentations only from the authoritative voices that can truly influence progress at a strategic level.

Progress Focused: The conference is not about reflecting on the past - it has been engineered entirely to drive the industry towards one objective; making it happen.

Practical Solutions: From local acceptance to planning permission to commercialisation, this summit will deliver practical solutions and facilitate pivotal discussions for driving forward every stage of development to make shale development a reality.

Answers Rather Than Questions: This conference is not about analysing the problem - it is about making decisions and developing operational and political strategies for seeing immediate movement in the progress of unconventional oil and gas.

Content Packed: We are offering two full days of presentations.This isn't a workshop or a seminar; it is a intense, strategic level conference for executives actively driving forward shale commercialisation in the UK

If the tangible, takeaway benefits above are what you are looking for, UK Shale: Making It Happen is the way to spend your two conference days this summer.

E&P and Government speakers will deliver presentations focusing on:

    • HOW TO ATTAIN WELL PERMITS : Streamlining the permitting process and building relationships with regulators to gain permits and enable operations to commence
    • HOW TO SECURE THE SUPPLY CHAIN : Developing drilling and completions equipment and infrastructure strategies to ensure necessary services are delivered for fracking
    • HOW TO EXPLOIT THE RESOURCE : Assessing cores, reserve estimations and reservoir characteristics to assess completions strategy and take UK shale production to commerciality
    • HOW TO WIN PUBLIC ACCEPTANCE : How to successfully, work alongside local communities, win acceptance and give Government the impetus to increase support for shale development
    • HOW TO OPERATE ENVIRONMENTALLY : Examining optimal methods for fracking and managing water safely to minimise environmental impact and public resistance
