Aug. 17: see oilfield tech that will play a critical role in the financial health of the shale industry

If Q2 oil and gas company filings are representative of what’s going on in the industry, a lot of shale developers are proving that they can make money when oil is approaching $50 per barrel. Rig counts are up across the hot basins, but so are costs. Demand for drilling rigs, pressure pumping equipment, chemicals and the other tools and services necessary to drill and complete wells has jumped in 2017. And costs have risen with the returning demand.

So an industry that has already squeezed out all the fat is going to have to figure out how to cut drilling and completion costs even more or find ways to get more hydrocarbons to flow, or both—but how?

Short answer: accelerate innovation and ingenuity in the oilfield.

Success of Shale will Depend on New Oilfield Technologies to Shore Up Economics

Oilfield service innovators have been busy developing and bringing to market extraction and production related technologies that help operators get more oil and gas out of the formation more efficiently.

EnerCom: creating a place for innovators to show the industry the new tech that’s in the pipeline

To give operators an easy way to see what’s new and what’s coming in oilfield tech, EnerCom has retooled the final day of its 22nd The Oil & Gas Conference® to showcase the new technologies that operators can look to for better completions, more efficient drilling, higher field production and increased cost savings.

EnerCom’s Oilfield Tech & Innovation Day is an exciting new opportunity for oilfield service and technology developers to show off their new technologies to oil and gas company operations teams and potential investors who are in Denver for the 22nd EnerCom conference which runs Aug. 13-17, 2017.

Presenting technology developers will demonstrate their cost-saving tech and other oilfield advances that are either in the marketplace now or are being tested in the field, and they will preview new technologies that will be available in the near future.

E&P operations teams: don’t miss this opportunity to see the latest tech, talk to the developers and get your questions answered at an established oil and gas presentation venue
