Apache SVP Joins DUG Canada Conference Speakers

May 08, 2012, 07:57 ET from Hart Energy

HOUSTON, May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Janine J. McArdle, senior vice president, Apache Corp., has joined the slate of executive speakers at Hart Energy's Developing Unconventionals (DUG™) Canada conference and exhibition, June 18-20, at the TELUS Convention Centre, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The event is presented jointly with the Canadian Society for Unconventional Resources (CSUR).

McArdle and executives from Ziff Energy Group and Canada West Foundation will address developing export markets for Canada's natural gas reserves. With the entrance of overseas firms, a true international effort is underway to secure both Canadian reserves and knowledge. Efforts to construct and supply LNG export terminals have the potential to remake the global gas market.

Other industry speakers on the DUG Canada agenda include:

  • Murray Nunns, president and CEO, Penn West Exploration
  • Michael Rose, president and CEO, Tourmaline Oil Corp.
  • Richard Moorman, CEO, Tamboran Resources
  • Doug Ramsay, CEO, Calfrac Well Services
  • Mike Dawson, president, CSUR
  • Gregory A. Lohnes, president, TransCanada Pipelines
  • Barry Rodgers, president, Rodgers Oil & Gas Consulting
  • Jim Stannard, senior vice president, development, Progress Energy Resources Corp.
  • Ron Bailey, vice president, Canada, Nexen, Inc.

DUG Canada will examine the depth and breadth of Canada's new unconventional plays — Montney, Cardium, Bakken, Exshaw, and Duvernay. As many operators tilt their portfolios toward light-oil and liquids-rich gas targets, new-generation drilling and completion technologies have opened fresh opportunities across the country. Eastern Canada also boasts unconventional resource riches, with programs in such plays as the Frederick Brook, Green Point, and Utica shales.
