"The greatest benefit of DUG East is that it's the catalyst that brings our industry together. Many of us work and live here in Pittsburgh but we also have many of our industry that serve our efforts here in the Marcellus shale that live and work elsewhere. This is a catalyst to bring everybody together at one time. There's a tremendous amount of business that gets done, relationships that are built, and I always find that I learn something at these conferences. I find them very valuable."

- Richard Weber, Chairman and CEO, PennEnergy Resources, LLC
