Emerging Shale Plays USA 2013

The Emerging Shale Plays USA Congress returned to Houston again to deliver exploration and production updates on America's hottest yet least publicized shale plays. The congress brought together leading experts from E&P companies operating in America's hottest plays including the Brown Dense, New Albany, Chainman, Eaglebine, Tuscaloosa, Heath and many more to provide an unprecedented level of insight into the productive capabilities of formations that should be on the radar of every New Ventures team across North America in 2013.

With new areas starting to be leased, and a number of emerging plays starting to see commercial production, the congress this year focused on answering two distinct, overarching  questions: 

  • What New Plays Are On The Cards For 2013?
  • How Are Last Year's Highly Anticipated Plays Living Up To Expectation?

The congress was split into two days, reflecting exactly that.


The first day delivered exploratory well data to characterize reservoirs and quantify the production potential of the most prominent but least publicly talked about emerging plays on the market:

Brown Dense, New Albany, Chainman, Eaglebine, Pearsall, Lower Sunniland Shale and Desmoinesian Shale


Day two re-visited some of the most highly anticipated emerging plays that were examined at Emerging Shale Plays USA 2012, providing core updates, completions updates and latest production results to infer key reservoir developments and understand whether or not the following plays are as commercially viable as originally touted:

Tuscaloosa, Wolfcamp, Monterey And Other Californian Shale Oil Plays , Woodford Oil Play and Mississippi Lime Play



"Very good and appropriate selection of topics"


The Brand New Features That This Year's Emerging Shale Plays USA Congress Will Deliver To Delegates:

  • NEW FRONTIER PLAYS: Since last year, there have been a number of hot new plays that have caught the eyes and resources of the keenest new ventures executives including the Brown Dense, New Albany, Chainman, Eaglebine, Pearsall, Lower Sunniland and Desmoinesian. Exploration data and IPs from these plays will, for the first time, be delivered in a conference format.
  • NEW E&P SPEAKERS: This year we are hosting brand new speakers from companies operating in these plays including Newfield Exploration, Goodrich Petroleum, Sunrise E&P, Longfellow Energy, Blackbrush Oil & Gas, Petro River Oil, EP Energy, Vision Exploration and more.
  • PRODUCTION UPDATES : This year, not only is Emerging Shale Plays USA going to look at the hottest new plays on the market, it is also going to assess new results from the hottest plays covered at Emerging Shale Plays USA 2012, to evaluate how those plays are living up, falling short, or even exceeding expected production potential
  • SOURCE ROCK ANALYSIS WORKSHOP: This year we have introduced a brand new workshop on how to identify commercially viable plays based on rock analysis. The workshop will show delegates how to analyze source rocks when measuring the producibility of reservoirs based on tried and tested techniques.

Emerging Shale Plays USA 2013 will bring together leading operators and experts from each of the hottest emerging plays, to share recent geological data, drilling and completions success stories, identified risks and production results from the following plays:

  • Brown Dense
  • New Albany
  • Chainman
  • Eaglebine
  • Pearsall
  • Lower Sunniland Shale
  • Desmoinesian Shale

It will then take a look at some of the shale plays that were examined at Emerging Shale Plays USA 2012 to determine whether or not production results from the last year have proven the following emerging plays to be economically viable:

  • Tuscaloosa
  • Wolfcamp
  • Monterey & Californian Shale Oil Plays
  • Woodford Oil Play
  • Mississippi Lime play

Emerging Shale Plays USA is the most established new shale opportunities forum in the USA and has been designed this year to deliver the exact data operators need to attain early bird advantage in America's hottest shale plays.
