The 20th Annual Executive Oil Conference Draws Record Crowd

A record-breaking 1,147 attendees converged in Midland, TX this November for Hart Energy's 20th annual Executive Oil Conference. The Permian Basin-focused event featured world-class presentations from 17 executive-level speakers and showcased products and services from 80 exhibiting companies.

Preceding the event, attendees gathered at the Petroleum Club to honor winners of the 2014 Hearst Awards. During the ceremony, Hart Energy recognized and thanked Dale Brown, founder and president of Petroleum Strategies—the former owner of the Executive Oil Conference—for his outstanding leadership and service in the community and the industry.

Hart Energy regularly pays tribute to America's military heroes during its events, and the 2014 Executive Oil Conference was no exception. Held on Veterans Day, the event featured a number of touching patriotic tributes – including heartfelt remarks from speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and attendees. A portion of the funds raised during the event's annual golf tournament were given to the Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides care for the families of soldiers who have been killed or disabled while in active duty.

Even plummeting oil prices couldn't dampen the tone of the conference. Analysts from Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. and Tudor, Pickering, Holt and Co. offered an encouraging assessment that West Texas' Permian Basin is poised to withstand turbulent oil prices. And during the event's opening keynote, Jeffrey Fisher, COO of American Energy Partners, announced the company will be actively establishing a corporate presence in the Permian Basin by opening a Midland office and hiring local talent.

Be sure to save the date for the 2015 Executive Oil Conference, scheduled November 9-10 at the new Midland County Horseshoe Pavilion. Opening in January 2015, the new pavilion has the space to support the event's continued growth.

Passage to Midland: McClendon Deal Funds Independent’s Plans
In 2012, as Tall City Exploration LLC was formed in the Permian Basin, its founders were already eyeing the exits. On Nov. 24, the company cracked open the door a little wider, collecting $440 million in cash and notes from American Energy - Permian Basin LLC (AEPB) for Midland Basin acreage. The deal includes Tall City's 14,000 net acres of leasehold primarily in Reagan County, with production of 1,400 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d). The private, independent company followed a predictable but lucrative recipe that has of late become infrequent as acquisitions and divestitures have migrated to the corporate world.
