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.

US Oil Drillers Cut Rigs For Second Week In Last Seven Months U.S. oil drillers cut rigs during the week of Jan. 9 for only the second week in the last seven months. This is likely just a brief pause in a recovery expected to last into 2018 as shale producers plan to boost spending as crude prices hold near an 18-month high.Drillers cut seven oil rigs in the week to Jan. 13, bringing the total rig count down to 522, compared with 515 rigs seen one year ago, according to Baker Hughes Inc. on Jan. 13.That decline ended the longest weekly streak of adding rigs since August 2011. The current streak ended at 10. Drillers added rigs for 19 weeks in 2011.
