Companies throughout the Eagle Ford gather in San Antonio to explore cost-saving solutions
"DUG is a great opportunity to launch your boat and go fishing in the data lake. We all want to learn what works best."
- Phil Martin, President and CEO, New Century Exploration, speaker at DUG Eagle Ford 2016
In search of efficiency-focused strategies and technologies, 1,500 industry professionals packed the 2016 DUG Eagle Ford conference and exhibition in San Antonio, TX, September 12-14. Conference attendees heard from over 30+ executive-level speakers in the event's targeted conference sessions and in the all-new Technology Showcase. And over 125+ exhibitors gave hands-on demonstrations of solutions helping producers cut costs and maximize output.
The speaker lineup featured leaders from the Eagle Ford's most active E&Ps, including private producers like Laredo Energy, Energy Hunter Resources, New Century Exploration, Hawkwood Energy and Teal Natural Resources, and public producers like Noble Energy (NBL), Chesapeake Energy (CHK), BHP Billiton (BHP) and Sanchez Energy (SN).
The event's new Technology Showcase brought the latest solutions to the exhibit floor with case studies and live demonstrations from leading companies like Emerson, Weatherford, Magnum Oil Tools and Halliburton.
Hart Energy once again co-located its MIDSTREAM Texas conference and exhibition with DUG Eagle Ford. Attendees had the option to focus exclusively on upstream or midstream content, or to upgrade to attend sessions from both events.
Mark your calendars – DUG Eagle Ford and MIDSTREAM Texas will return to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio August 29-31.

Operators Wonder At Wattenberg Prospects The Niobrara is following the trend of many unconventional shale plays in the U.S.— costs are down, and thanks to the technology that’s continuing to evolve, production and completion efficiencies are up.Scott Reasoner, chief operating officer at PDC Energy said that the Denver-based company owns about 96,000 acres in the core of the company’s Wattenberg Field prospect with estimated potential of about 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent (Bboe). PDC acquired theses reserves from a series of downspacing efforts and by identifying other productive zones.“We feel like the rates of return here are competitive with any of the other plays in the basins in North America,” he told an audience at Hart Energy’s recent DUG Bakken & Niobrara conference. “In the D-J Basin, it’s important to be in Wattenberg Field because the Niobrara isn’t the same everywhere.”
