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:

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.
