"Multiple Cretaceous Age Targets (Deep Basin) - Western Alberta" will be Rose's topic. Tourmaline Oil holds a dominant land position of nearly 800,000 net acres in the Deep Basin region and has been a leading natural gas producer using vertical wells with multiple production zones.

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.
