Knowing When To Strike


The 19th annual A&D Strategies and Opportunities Conference will be an exclusive gathering of the industry’s most experienced negotiators, each one equipped with a sharp pencil – and a hunger to make a deal.


Veteran deal-makers always find ways to negotiate. Uncertainties from a Saudi-Russian price war (now over) and a novel coronavirus (now better understood) cast long shadows, but as this chaotic business year approaches its close, deals can still be made.

In the first quarter of 2020, the coronavirus crisis was exacerbated by record-setting price declines for crude oil. Well-funded operators and bigger global oil companies are likely to continue consolidating their U.S. shale assets as capital markets refuse to thaw and topline U.S. production remains modest.

As Hart Energy’s first in-person event in months, this conference will not be a large, crowded function with an exhibition hall. Attendance will be limited to 250 to ensure the safety of all who participate. Read more on our safety precautions here, as well as safety measures the Fairmont Hotel has in place.


Register today to make sure you’re in the room December 8-9 at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas.
