Marcellus and Utica Producers Gather to Discuss the Latest Efficiency-Focused Technologies & Strategies

This June, hundreds of oil and gas professionals, over two dozen executive-level speakers and top exhibitors converged in Pittsburgh to spend two days exploring the latest efficiency-focused technologies and strategies saving Appalachian producers valuable time and money. The event’s world-class speaker lineup featured leaders from the most-active producers in the region, including CONSOL Energy, Range Resources, Rice Energy, Eclipse Resources and others. A few key takeaways from the conference sessions were:

  • There are gains to be made in how efficiently the industry operates with the resources at hand. One of the biggest opportunities for operators could be their ability to narrow the gap between the best wells and the worst wells. We are in the early innings of improving capital efficiency.
  • If companies do things the right way and take a long view, they will be the lowest-cost—and most capital efficient—producers.
  • The industry has transitioned from speed to efficiency. During the high-price era, companies worked as fast as possible to acquire new acreage, drill wells and bring production online. In the current market, the focus is on efficiency and lowering costs.

Charlie Cook, editor and publisher of the Cook Political Report, and columnist for the National Journal delivered a special Presidential Election address, sharing a political insider’s look at how the 2016 race for the Whitehouse is shaping up. This year, Hart Energy also launched the all-new Technology Showcase on the exhibition floor. Top technology providers presented the latest solutions with case studies and live demonstrations.

The conference may be over, but the conversation isn’t! Find out what other attendees and exhibitors are saying on Storify. We would love to hear about your experience too.

Be sure to save the date for DUG East 2017, scheduled to return to the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, June 20-22, 2017.
