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.
