Continuing to put industry leaders face-to-face with the latest oil and gas developments, Hart Energy announced full-day technical programs commencing on the second day of its four largest DUG conferences. DUG Technology will debut at the 2018 DUG Permian Basin conference and exhibition on Wednesday, May 23 at the Fort Worth Convention Center.

The 2,000+ oil and gas professionals who gather in Fort Worth will experience the first DUG Technology program as added value to their full-conference passes. The technical presentations will focus on what’s working in the Permian Basin, common practices employed by Permian operators, state-of-the-art technologies, and the status of full-field development plans.

DUG East, DUG Eagle Ford and DUG Midcontinent will also carry the DUG Technology torch into their extended second day programming. Expert panels, technical spotlights and roundtable discussions will cover a range of topics, including:

    • Proppants
    • Regulatory policies
    • Well stimulation practices
    • Water sourcing, treatment and reuse
    • Completion optimization
