Efficiency-focused technologies have become the lifeblood of the industry. Producers and service providers defy expectations as they collaborate to produce more for less. The all-new DUG East Technology Showcase brings innovative solutions to the exhibit floor with case studies and live demonstrations. Here's a preview of this year's topics:

Mark Rothenberg
APEX Energy

Q: How is your company navigating today's market challenges and capitalizing on opportunities?

A: APEX is taking advantage of the current conditions by drilling "non-development" wells. In the past it has been difficult to obtain high quality services and reasonable costs for single or "one-off" wells. In the current environment we are able to secure the services we need at reasonable costs.

Q: What will your DUG East presentation focus on?

A: I will focus on the macro natural gas supply and demand environment, what Appalachia's role is in that environment, and how small, PE backed companies like APEX fit in.


Germany's Fracking Limits Will Ban The Process From Clay Formations
Germany imposed limits on fracking on June 24, dealing a blow to efforts to develop shale gas. Under legislation passed by its lower house of Parliament, fracking will be banned in clay formations, which typically lie between 1,000 meters (m) and 2,500 m deep.Scientific test drilling will be allowed, but only with the permission of the relevant state government and under the watch of independent experts.Fracking for deep-lying or "tight" gas, typically 4,000 m to 5,000 m deep, which has been done for more than 30 years in Germany, will continue, but under more stringent regulation.
