Specifications for Speaker Presentation Ideas


Specificity: This is crucial for technology, process and operational related abstracts. Make sure your presentation idea promises to convey, in specific terms, how a technology, system or strategy used in the Williston Basin or other relevant shale plays could improve oil or gas production, increase operational efficiencies or impact the development of the Bakken and Three Forks Formations. The abstract should offer a new approach to an old way of doing things, or highlight process, production, operational improvements and/or technological breakthroughs in the fields of drilling, hydraulic fracturing and completions, water, associated gas, well-site infrastructure, flaring, crude handling, pipelines, artificial lifts, policy, enhanced oil recovery and other fields related to Bakken and Three Forks crude retrieval, handling and storage.

Relevance: The presentation should highlight a product, technology or approach that will make significant near-term impacts to the Williston Basin, or will become prominent because of implementation in the Williston Basin. The presentation should also offer insight into the oil and gas industry as it relates to the Bakken and Three Forks Formations in the areas of drilling and production, resource utilization and/or logistics and downstream infrastructure.

Detail: While abstracts do not include schematics, photos, graphics, spreadsheets or pro formats, the abstract should indicate that the speaker will illustrate the effect of the technology/process/strategic approach by incorporating such visual tools into the presentation.

Understandability: If there are very complex processes or scientific/economic ideas being presented, the abstract should indicate that measures will be taken to make the information understandable (within reason) to a diverse spectrum of conference attendees?

Word Count: While there is technically no limitations on the length of your abstract, we ask that it be 200 to 400 words in length.
