New Dates for the 4th DUG Midcontinent Conference and Exhibition
The next DUG Midcontinent conference and exhibition is set for October 26-28, 2016, at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The change comes in response to feedback from attendees and exhibitors. Previously, the event had been held in February. All participants can now enjoy warmer weather in October.
Last year, the DUG Midcontinent conference and exhibition joined more than 1,400 oil and gas professionals with 24 executive-level presenters and nearly 150 exhibitors and sponsors for an in-depth look at unconventional resource development throughout the region. Every DUG event delivers a highly effective mix of data, insight and forecasts about financing, exploration, drilling and production, presented by esteemed industry leaders. The 2016 DUG Midcontinent conference and exhibition will build on the franchise's success with informative presentations from the region's most active players.

For Natural Gas, Mexico Can Be Permian’s New Best Friend Mexico has already made it clear how much natural gas it needs to import from the U.S. and how it wants to get it. The issue on this side of the border is meeting that challenge.“Mexico decided to help build three pipelines out of Waha direct with 3 Bcf [billion cubic feet] of capacity,” Gary Conway, principal, president and CEO of Vaquero Midstream LLC, said at the recent DUG Permian Basin conference. “To me, that’s really a pretty good indicator that this is exactly the spot where they want to pick up their gas.”Mexico produces about 2 Bcf per day (Bcf/d) and imports about 2 Bcf/d from the U.S., much of it through the Agua Dulce Hub in Nueces County, Texas. Natural gas makes up about 40% of the country’s energy consumption, but that is growing as gas replaces oil in electric power generation.
Trump: Obama’s Unnecessary Oil, Gas, Coal Regulations Will Go BISMARCK, N.D. (Reuters)—Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, promised May 26 to roll back some of America's most ambitious environmental policies, actions that he said would revive the ailing U.S. oil and coal industries and bolster national security.Among the proposals, Trump said he would pull the U.S. out of the U.N. global climate accord, approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada and rescind measures by President Barack Obama to cut U.S. emissions and protect waterways from industrial pollution."Any regulation that's outdated, unnecessary, bad for workers or contrary to the national interest will be scrapped and scrapped completely," Trump told about 7,700 people at the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in Bismarck, the capital of oil-rich North Dakota. "We're going to do all this while taking proper regard for rational environmental concerns."
