Larger Crowd Attended 2015 DUG Midcontinent Conference

Nearly 1,300 oil and gas professionals attended the 3rd annual DUG Midcontinent conference and exhibition, an approximate 15 percent increase in paid delegates from last year. Attendees heard from top executives and decision-makers from the region's most-active exploration and production companies at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City on February 24-26.

Dave Hager, COO of Oklahoma City-based Devon Energy, delivered the opening keynote remarks for the conference. Hager will become Devon's president and CEO effective August 2015. Chesapeake Energy Vice President John Adcock, from another Oklahoma City-based corporation, gave insights on increasing operational efficiency. He said pad wells are not the most efficient way to drill a well, but rather the most efficient way to move a rig.

Other notable speakers addressed the audience about promising field developments. Wade Hutchings, a regional vice president for Marathon Oil, told attendees 70 percent of Marathon's 2015 capital is allocated to U.S. resource plays. Kevin Phillippi, principal at A.T. Kearney, said each major refining region has seen asset base shifts due to recent economic conditions. He added the most profitable refineries are in Wyoming. Cheniere Pipeline president, Chad Zamarin shared plans for expansions, pipelines and markets. The company is working on the Creole Trail Pipeline, Sabine Pass LNG terminal and first LNG export cargoes projected for the fourth quarter.

Prospective attendees can mark their calendars for next year's DUG Midcontinent conference set for February 23-25, 2016 in Oklahoma City, OK.

Hart Energy would like to thank the 2015 DUG Midcontinent sponsors for their continued support.
