Infocast's Shale Oil Summit for Western Canada

Assembling a Superb Roster of Industry Innovators and Leaders for a Definitive Outlook on the Vast Potential of Western Canadian Shale Oil Plays

CALGARY, AB--(Marketwire - Aug 4, 2011) - Infocast Events Canada will hold their premiere Canadian shale oil conference, Shale Oil Summit for Western Canada, at the Telus Convention Centre in Calgary, AB from September 12-14, 2011. This summit is perfectly timed as it coincides with an acceleration of activity in the Saskatchewan Bakken, Viking, Cardium and Alberta Bakken. Attendees will have a rare opportunity to network with key decision makers as they shape the future of Canadian Western shale.

The recent advances in horizontal drilling and completion strategies and high oil prices have made unconventional shale oil plays increasingly profitable. These factors have been instrumental in the surge of gas production in Western Canada's high-profile shale formations that have achieved a status of financial viability for exploration and production companies. Thus far, this activity suggests that the Alberta Bakken could be North America's next big oil play.

This Summit will bring together front-line players from E&P, field service, financial companies, analysts, geologists and regulators. Rene LaPrade, Senior Vice President of Operations at PetroBakken Energy Ltd, will provide a case study that discusses how to leverage success from the Bakken to the Cardium.

"We are very pleased to be offering a leading-edge program that provides an on-the-ground look at the exciting developments taking place in the Western Canadian shale oil plays," said Vladka Anderson, Infocast's Director of Event Design. "As a company, Infocast Events Canada is committed to providing an opportunity for leading market players and key financial representatives to meet, compare notes and assess the economics and geology of Western Canadian shale oil plays, leading to profitable ventures."
