This April, nearly 1,800 oil and gas professionals, 25+ executive-level speakers and 200+ exhibitors converged in Denver to spend two days exploring the latest efficiency-focused technologies and strategies saving producers throughout the Rockies 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, Newfield Exploration, QEP Resources and others. Presenters discussed their latest drilling results, future plans and efforts to maximize profits by driving efficiency throughout their organizations. Key topics included optimized completion programs, streamlined logistics and well refracturing. With 9+ hours of networking opportunities built into the event, attendees had ample time to connect and discuss everything they learned in the conference sessions.

Retired four-star General John Allen delivered a special Keynote Luncheon address, sharing personal accounts from his time serving as Commander of the U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan.

Contractors Scramble To Retain Crews, Find Work
Demand for workover services in the traditional dry gas basins is slowing once again. Equipment continues to stack out for lack of demand. Meanwhile, expectations are that demand will drift lower yet among workover contractors participating in the Hart Energy survey. The mix of jobs in the Fayetteville, Barnett and Haynesville reflects trends in other parts of the country and sort out to about 60% routine maintenance and 20% completions. Hourly rates are down 25% for the benchmark 500 series rig since the last dry gas basin survey in April 2015 to just more than $300 per hour. At the same time, workover rigs continue to stack out. Those rigs that keep working are employed on minor jobs or routine maintenance. A couple contractors, who have been through several downturns dating back 40 years, say this one is the worst they have seen. Watch for the next traditional dry gas basin report on workover activity in the Fayetteville, Barnett and Haynesville shale plays in April 2016.
