Attendees from North Dakota to Colorado Gather to Discuss the Latest Efficiency-Driven Technologies & Strategies

This March, hundreds of oil and gas professionals, over two dozen executive-level speakers and hundreds of exhibitors converged in Denver to spend two days exploring the latest efficiency-focused technologies and strategies saving producers throughout the Rockies and Northern Great Plains valuable time and money.

The event's world-class speaker lineup featured leaders from the most-active producers in the region, including Whiting Petroleum, Oasis Petroleum, Hess Corporation, Laramie Energy II LLC, WPX Energy and others. Karl Rove, former advisor to President George W. Bush, Fox News and Wall Street Journal contributor, and bestselling author delivered a special Presidential Election Luncheon address, sharing a political insider's look at how the 2016 race for the Whitehouse is shaping up.

This year, Hart Energy renamed the event from DUG Bakken & Niobrara to DUG Rockies to showcase a broader geographic focus in the conference agenda. 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 Rockies 2017, scheduled to return to the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, March 15-17, 2017.


3Q 2016 Features Highest Number Of Added Rigs Since 2014
U.S. drillers in the third quarter added the most oil rigs of any quarter since 2014, according to a closely followed report on Sept. 30, but the pace of additions has slowed as crude holds below $50 a barrel (bbl) despite OPEC's first plan in eight years to cut output. Drillers added seven oil rigs in the week to Sept. 30, bringing the total rig count up to 425, the most since February but still below the 614 rigs seen one year ago, energy services firm Baker Hughes Inc. said. For the quarter, they added 95 rigs, the most since drillers added 105 rigs in the first quarter of 2014. The oil rig count plunged from a record high of 1,609 in October 2014 to a low of 316 in May after crude prices collapsed in the steepest collapse in a generation due to a global oil glut. That decline continued through the first half of this year when drillers cut 206 rigs.
