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.
