Top producers converge in San Antonio for an in-depth look at the Eagle Ford
In search of new efficiency-focused strategies and technologies, over 2,400 industry professionals gathered at the 2015 DUG Eagle Ford conference and exhibition in San Antonio, TX, October 25-27. Conference attendees heard from over 25 executive-level speakers in the event's targeted conference sessions. And over 400 exhibitors gave hands-on demonstrations of the newest products and services helping producers in the region cut costs and maximize output.
Themed "Finding the Formula – Increasing EURs + Decreasing Well Costs," the conference agenda was built to help Eagle Ford producers do more with less. The event's speaker lineup featured leaders from South Texas' most active producers, including ConocoPhillips, Pioneer Natural Resources, Marathon Oil, Encana Services Company, Chesapeake Energy, Sanchez Energy, Halcon Resources, and Devon Energy. Presenters gave updates on their drilling programs and discussed their efforts to slash breakeven costs. During the event's luncheon, Taya Kyle, wife of the late "American Sniper" Chris Kyle, and author of American Wife, shared her story of family, sacrifice and her efforts to keep the spirit of her late husband's service alive.
Hart Energy's inaugural MIDSTREAM Texas conference was co-located with DUG Eagle Ford this year, giving attendees the opportunity to focus on upstream or midstream content, or both. Hundreds of attendees gathered to hear from top midstream operators like EnLink Midstream, Enterprise Products and DCP Midstream.
