In search of new efficiency-focused strategies and technologies, over 2,000 industry professionals packed the 2015 DUG Permian Basin conference and exhibition in Fort Worth, TX, May 19-21. Conference attendees heard from over 35 executive-level speakers in the event's pre-conference Midstream Program and main Upstream Conference. And over 170 exhibitors gave hands-on demonstrations of the newest products and services helping producers in the region cut costs and maximize output.

The Upstream Conference's speaker lineup featured leaders from the Permian's most active producers, including Apache Corp., Laredo Petroleum, Matador Resources, RSP Permian and RKI Exploration and Production.

The pre-conference Midstream Program was led by executives from the Texas Railroad Commission, EnLink Midstream, Crestwood Midstream Partners and Watco Companies, among others. Sessions explored current midstream projects and plans to continue building infrastructure to support long-term upstream activity in the region.

Tour De Force: Tall City Achieves Its 2015 Exit
In a few short years, private-equity-backed Tall City Exploration LLC has turned $300 million into more than $1 billion in the Permian Basin. The Midland, Texas-based company said Nov. 30 it has sold substantially all of its E&P assets in the Permian to new comer Moss Creek Resources LLC for $803 million. The deal marks the final realization of the company’s goals. Moss Creek was recently formed for the purposes of the transaction by Blue Whale Energy North America Corp., a U.S. subsidiary of a Chinese energy investment company. In its first deal, the company has gained a strong foothold with prolific acreage in the core of the Northern Midland Basin.
