Hart Energy's 2016 Executive Oil Conference delivered on its election-year theme, "The Permian Wins Again. A record crowd of over 1,200 oil and gas professionals (up ~16% from 2014 and 2015) gathered November 7-8 at the Midland County Horseshoe Pavilion in Midland, TX. An estemmed slate of speakers provided an in-depth look at the Permian's prolific plays and how producers are leveraging efficient strategies and technologies to remain profitable.

The event kicked off on November 7 with a sold-out annual golf tournament at the Odessa Country Club. Over 200 golfers gathered on the course for friendly competition and networking. Proceeds from the event were donated to the Folds of Honor Foundation.

That evening, Hart Energy honored Permian legend Scott Sheffield, Pioneer Natural Resources' Chairman and CEO, with an Industry Leadership Award at the sold-out annual Energy Executive Dinner. The event also honored recipients of the Hearst Energy Awards, presented by the Midland Reporter-Telegram.

Oil and gas executives are the Executive Oil Conference's main attraction. Senior-level leaders from top producers like Pioneer Natural Resources, Apache Corp. and Approach Resources discussed how producers and technologies providers are cutting costs and increasing profits during the event’s conference sessions.
