The Booming Midcontinent: Reinventing America's Heartland

Production on the rise from Kansas to the Texas Panhandle

From Oklahoma's first commercial well in 1897 to today's unconventional discoveries, oil has played a central role in the region's economic development for more than a century. Today, after decades of declining production (and with further declines predicted), output from this historic region has reversed course. Unconventional technologies are revitalizing once-prolific conventional plays and unlocking promising new unconventional formations.

This year Oklahoma's monthly crude oil production peaked at more than 11 million barrels, a level not seen since the late 1980s. And as top E&P companies flock to hot new plays like the SCOOP, STACK and Springer shale, production likely will continue to rise.

NEW Dates, City and Venue - We've moved! Hart Energy is pleased to announce DUG Midcontinent is coming to Oklahoma City in 2015. We are truly excited to watch what happens when the world's largest unconventional oil and gas resources event series takes place in this great city.

Passage to Midland: McClendon Deal Funds Independent’s Plans
In 2012, as Tall City Exploration LLC was formed in the Permian Basin, its founders were already eyeing the exits. On Nov. 24, the company cracked open the door a little wider, collecting $440 million in cash and notes from American Energy - Permian Basin LLC (AEPB) for Midland Basin acreage. The deal includes Tall City's 14,000 net acres of leasehold primarily in Reagan County, with production of 1,400 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d). The private, independent company followed a predictable but lucrative recipe that has of late become infrequent as acquisitions and divestitures have migrated to the corporate world.
