JUST ANNOUNCED: The DUG Permian Basin & Eagle Ford Conference will now be an online-only event.

Despite rescheduling the event for early September, Hart Energy has faced multiple municipal restrictions on the planned convention space for the DUG Permian Basin & Eagle Ford Conference. As such, we are officially moving the co-located conference to a virtual format.  

The DUG Permian Basin & Eagle Ford Virtual Conference will be available for streaming on-demand starting September 29-30.  

Please note: There will NOT be an exhibition at this year’s event. Current exhibitors/sponsors should contact their Hart Energy sales representative to review their options.



Two exceptional plays helped transform the U.S. shale industry

An extraordinary event comes together as Hart Energy co-locates two of its biggest conferences covering Texas’ largest shale plays.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and uncertainty in oil markets, Hart Energy’s annual DUG Permian Basin Conference & Exhibition will be co-located with the DUG Eagle Ford Conference & Exhibition – and the entire event is going virtual!

Hart Energy’s co-located DUG Permian Basin & Eagle Ford Virtual Conference will be the best place to hear fresh perspectives and actionable intel from influential executives who grasp what the future holds for these two shale plays.

Best of all, you’ll receive COMPLIMENTARY ACCESS to the entire program thanks to generous support from our sponsors!
