Why Attend?

Classic Rock

The "Boys are Back in Town" and so are the drilling rigs. In 2017, the Haynesville's rig count passed the Marcellus-Utica for the first time in 6 years. And the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) re-valuated the Haynesville resource in place making it the largest continuous natural gas assessment ever conducted. Some speculate the region is a sleeping giant; however, Haynesville producers "Dream On" as this shale play grows with increasing rig counts, natural gas production, and LNG exports.

A new stop in the renowned DUG conference and exhibition tour, DUG Haynesville (Feb 20-21 in Shreveport) brings the unmatched “DUG experience” to a new city as operational advances coupled with surging natural gas exports renew interest in the Haynesville shale. Themed Classic Rock, the all-new DUG Haynesville will spotlight the best of the "old rock" in a region holding an estimated 304 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
