An Oklahoma Rig Revival

Oklahoma operators are drilling again, with 60 rigs at work, as a trifecta of strong commodity prices has emerged for oil, gas and NGL – a combination that makes rates of return 100% and more in the 1,200 Btu and higher, over-pressured formations of the Anadarko Basin. With a multitude of formations to target, the Midcontinent is back – joining only the Haynesville in a stronger rig count in the Lower 48 today than pre-2019. 

Returning to OKC after a yearlong hiatus, the 2022 DUG Midcontinent Conference & Exhibition promises to be the Oklahoma shale event of the year. Don’t miss this valuable opportunity to hear directly from operators and experts as they share news of how the SCOOP, STACK, Merge and more Oklahoma plays are well "in the money".



Plays Covered: Woodford, SCOOP, STACK, Merge, Springer and other emerging Midcontinent plays from Kansas to the Texas Panhandle
