- Texas. I attended the DUG Eagle Ford Expo in San Antonio this past week. It was certainly a highly successful, high energy expo. Congratulations to Hart Energy for such an impressive event. As I walked the aisles, I could feel the eagerness and excitement that I experienced when the Marcellus Shale was just taking off. After the DUG Eagle Ford, I spent a day in Houston meeting with the senior management of companies working in the oil and gas industry. In discussing the current drilling activity, they all commented that they have not seen anything like this in a long time. A couple commented on the influx of people into the Houston to work in the oil and gas industry. If your company is looking to increase its footprint in the oil and gas industry, Texas is the place to be.
- Utica Shale is going to be big in 2015. After last week’s Facts & Rumors went out, a senior person at an oil field service company, whom I hold in high esteem, sent me an email and said, “Utica is poised to take off in 2015.” Buckle up in Ohio. 2015 is going to be a good year.
- Shale Insight. As I have attended expos throughout the Marcellus and Utica this year, I noticed the absence of E&P personnel at the event which negatively impacted these events.
This should not be the case at Shale Insight. I’ve been told that individuals of the Coalition’s Board Members will be there. While these companies will not have booths, the representatives will be there. It should be a good opportunity to meet some E&P representatives. We’ll be there at booth #535. Stop by if you get a chance.
