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.

McClendon’s American Energy Partners Powering Down
American Energy Partners (AEP) is shuttering its doors in Oklahoma City and reducing staff after the company suffered from a bad market and the untimely death of its founder, Aubrey McClendon, according to several news reports.AEP did not respond to a request for comment and several direct employee phone lines were disconnected.McClendon was the centerpiece of AEP and a magnet for attracting capital after his ouster from Chesapeake Energy Corp. (NYSE: CHK). On March 1, McClendon was accused by the U.S. Department of Justice of rigging bids for the purchase of natural gas leases in northwest Oklahoma over a four-year period. AEP said it would continue business following McClendon’s death the next day.
