The Largest Gathering of Texas Shale Professionals in the World

Hart Energy’s DUG Permian Basin and Eagle Ford Conference & Exhibition will officially be returning to its standard in-person format, April 19-21, 2021 at the Fort Worth Convention Center!

This combined event (which will also incorporate the Midstream Texas program) will provide the industry with its first face-to-face opportunity to get a comprehensive view of Texas’ oil and gas markets and activity.

Hart Energy’s DUG conference sessions and related exhibits have historically attracted a deep network of qualified professionals eager to network with like-minded peers and colleagues and share the latest industry intelligence and technology applications. Attendees can expect to walk away with actionable intel to plan and manage successful operations within both of these dynamic Texas shale plays.

The DUG conference series offers thought leadership, best practices and innovative solutions for the oil and gas industry. Speakers and exhibitors review and discuss strategies that can be applied in real-time for effective results. No other shale-focused industry event connects such a diverse group of key players and decision-makers.
