About the Event

SUPER DUG’s focus is energy production in the shale plays of the U.S. including the Permian, Eagle Ford, Midcontinent, Bakken and the Rockies. Last year’s launch of SUPER DUG was a huge success and 2024 will be even bigger.

With an expected attendance of over 2,000+ industry professionals, over 130 exhibitors and 10+ hours of networking activities, SUPER DUG will provide the unique opportunity to connect with key decision-makers from public and private producers, midstream operators, and leading service and technology providers. And we’re pleased to announce that our keynote speaker will be former Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush and iconic political strategist, Karl Rove!

 Join us at Hart Energy LIVE’s SUPER DUG Conference & Expo in Fort Worth, Texas on May 15-17, 2024.           

The Largest Shale Event of the Year!

The oil and gas (O&G) industry earned record profits in 2023, providing needed cash flow to fund their strategies in 2024. And while upstream O&G companies recognize geopolitical and macroeconomic uncertainty in the year ahead, they’ve also been given a clear mandate to secure supply in the short term while transitioning to cleaner energy.

What the Experts Are Saying:

  I hope everyone registers for SUPER DUG to be held on May 22 - 24 in Fort Worth, Texas. It is one of our greatest annual industry events, showcasing all facets of the oil and gas value chain in North America.
Kaes Van't Hof
President & CFO, Diamondback Energy
  Hart Energy DUG conferences are always exciting and insightful; however, the schedule coming together for SUPER DUG is fantastic. It will be a one-stop shop for all things in and around the North American shale plays. The conversations around economics and M&A alongside ESG and operations will be beneficial for operators, analysts and service providers alike.

  We rarely get an opportunity to compare and contrast techniques, ideas, and, strategies from the single basin in which we focus. SUPER DUG is an excellent way to do so in other basins.
