Interpreting Economic Evaluations (Reserves 101) - Encana Auditorium
3 CAPL Credits
What is the relevance of the reserve report and asset evaluation with regards to an acquisition or disposition? Why do the reserve figures for some assets or companies change dramatically? Is there something ‘shifty’ going on when a company carries 3 different reserve figures for an asset? If you are an NI 51-101 expert, you will have all these answers, otherwise you should drop in and hear what we have to say.
This seminar will explain the need, process and methods of estimating and categorization of oil and gas reserves. Of course, we will explore NI 51-101 and its relevance to the oil and gas industry in Canada. And finally, we will discuss the elements of an asset evaluation, critical for all acquisition and disposition activity.
Presented By: Keith Carr - Keith Carr has spent nearly four decades working in the oil and gas industry and has been sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm with students for many years.

PJVA Course - ConocoPhillips Auditorium
3 CAPL Credits
There’s a fine line where Mineral Land business ends and Joint Venture business begins. And, there’s often a misunderstanding about how Joint Ventures interacts with other business units within an oil and gas company. As an oil and gas employee, having a basic understanding of Joint Venture agreements and processes can help to increase your understanding of the value chain of our business and enhance job effectiveness. Joint Venture specialists are involved to help strategize with the property teams and begin negotiating infrastructure requirements with the companies developing the area. JV deals with various non-standard complexities each day that involve finance, operations, facilities, partners, production, contracts, and more.
Once the strategy has been decided and if a Gas Plant and/or Gathering System is the solution, Joint Ventures would negotiate the terms of the Joint Venture, and draft a CO&O which provides details on how the facilities will be constructed, owned, developed and managed, who the Operator will be, how costs will be shared, how production will be allocated, how excess capacity usage will be administered, and revenue shared. Third party production is also a factor that requires Joint Venture management on behalf of the Owners in a CO&O agreement.
Join us for a ½ day presentation on Joint Venture Business and the benefits of having knowledgeable joint venture staff handling your business negotiations, contracts and partnerships to ensure the opportunities are optimized and obligations effectively managed.

Afternoon "CAPL" Talks
During the afternoons of both days of the conference, we are planning to invite speakers from a diverse range of backgrounds to give “Ted Style Talks” about their respective disciplines. These talks are to be short, powerful and engaging (10-15 minutes in length) with the main goal being to showcase the variety of disciplines we as landmen are exposed to every day and ultimately provide them with tools, thoughts and ideas that can inspire and challenge them to be better landmen and champions of their company and industry.
