Unconventional Resources Program Advisory Committee (UR PAC)

The Unconventional Resources Program receives guidance from a Program Advisory Committee (UR PAC).  The UR PAC is a critical link to the producer and research communities that provides input on program priorities, field areas of interest, and technology dissemination. The UR PAC is responsible for the selection of projects that align with program requirements, using input from reviews by technical experts. UR PAC engagement in the process of planning and executing the research program is critical to success, as the companies represented on the UR PAC will be the organizations called upon to actually deploy and operate the new technologies developed under the program.

The UR PAC consists of members from academia, service and manufacturing companies, researchers and the oil and gas community.
