DUG Video

DUG: Developing Unconventionals

In 2006, Hart Energy launched the DUG brand — a series of conferences focused on the industry's business challenges and opportunities in identifying and developing unconventional resources. Originally "DUG" meant developing unconventional gas — but with the discovery of oil in unconventional formations and the application of unconventional drilling and completion techniques to legacy reservoirs, the DUG brand evolved to mean developing "unconventionals" in the broadest sense.

Each DUG conference is uniquely focused on the most timely and important issues facing unconventional resources development, because they are produced with major input by the industry professionals who understand the issues best. Every DUG event delivers a highly effective mix of data, insight and forecasts about financing, exploration, drilling, completions, production, processing and delivery, presented by esteemed upstream and midstream industry leaders in a respectful, engaging environment.

Thousands of industry leaders come together at each DUG event to stay current on emerging unconventional resource markets, and to get hands-on access to the newest products, services and technologies that are shaping the industry. Attendees include decision-makers from:
