The Kentucky Geological Survey and Center for Applied Energy Research at the University of Kentucky are joining together to initiate an annual Eastern Unconventional Oil & Gas Symposium (EUOGS) to be held November 5-7, 2014. EUOGS will address a broad range of upstream and downstream issues related to energy production from emerging resources.

Unconventional Oil & Gas relies on expertise from a number of disciplines, including:

  • Upstream Side: horizontal drilling, fracture stimulation, regulations, water issues, pipelines, induced seismicity, geology, and related topics.
  • Downstream Side: impacted by issues with regulated utilities, natural gas vehicles, sustainability, environmental impacts, and other focus areas.

Abstracts (1 to 2 pages) are due AUGUST 15, 2014.

The meeting will be held in Lexington, Kentucky at the Hilton Lexington Hotel. It will open with a plenary session on Wednesday, November 5. There will be technical sessions on Thursday morning and afternoon as well as on Friday morning.

We are targeting an audience from, but not limited to, the oil and gas producing areas of the states in the northeast comprising the Appalachian, Illinois, and Michigan Basins. We are inviting you to save these dates, November 5 to 7, 2014, and consider joining us as a speaker for our technical sessions.
