Missed The Event?


"One of the best congresses I've ever attended. I learned something from every presentation"

Geoscience Manager, Le Norman Operating LLC

Reducing the geological and operational risks when moving into emerging plays is the name of the game. Operators must acquire a better understanding of the key geological drivers in the hottest emerging shale plays to infer the producibility, identify the most suitable drilling and completions strategies and deduce the overall commerciality of the play.

Receiving latest geological and production updates first hand from operators currently exploring the region can be game changing in reducing this exploration risk. Because of this, the Emerging Shale Plays USA 2014 Congress brought together world-leading explorationists, executives and geoscience experts from each play presented to share the latest core analysis data and initial production results to quantify initial rates of return, identify sweet spots and infer the profitability of each play.


  • E&P-LED:  It is the only E&P-led event focusing exclusively on emerging shale plays across the US.
  • ELKO, PILOT, GALLUP, BUDA, LEWIS AND GOTHIC SHALE PLAYS : The only event bringing attention to relatively unknown emerging shale plays like the Elko, the Pilot Shale, the Gallup or the Buda. It will be the first time these plays are discussed in an industry-lead, world-class forum.
  • PLAY SELECTION: This is the only congress to compare and contrast such a broad range and unique set of plays side by side, under one roof and examine the key criteria used to determine entry into one emerging play over another
  • LATEST GEOLOGICAL AND PRODUCTION UPDATES: We are bringing operator's who are currently working on the frontline of these plays to deliver the most up-to-date geological and production data based on recent activity
