Retired Four-Star General and former CIA Director, David Petraeus was a huge draw during the Keynote Luncheon. Petraeus answered a lightning round of questions about the global energy industry and key foreign affairs.

Wall Street Journal writer Gregory Zuckerman wrapped up the conference with highlights from his book, The Frackers, which explores stories of innovators in the U.S. shale revolution. Zuckerman also held a book signing at the Hart Energy booth.

Apache To Shed Noncore Anadarko, South Louisiana Properties For $1.4 Billion
Apache Corp. (NYSE: APA) said Nov. 20 it plans to sell noncore southern Louisiana and certain Anadarko Basin oil and gas assets for about $1.4 billion in two separate transactions. Proceeds from the sales will be used primarily to fund Apache’s 2014 leasehold acquisition program, according to a news release. John Christmann, Apache’s COO, described the assets as “high-decline, mature properties,” during a Nov. 20 webcast. The buyers were not identified during the webcast. In southern Louisiana, Apache will sell its working interest in about 90,000 net acres. The mature fields produced about 21,000 barrels of oil per day (boe/d) (62% gas and NGLs) net to Apache during the third quarter of 2014. The Houston-based company will retain its 275,000 mineral acres in South Louisiana. “It just does not fit and will not compete for capital in 2015 going forward,” Christmann said of the Louisiana assets.
