Emerging Shale Plays USA Series

American Business Conferences invites you to be part of the established series of the Emerging Shale Plays Oil & Gas initiatives, bringing together senior industry players to unlock South America's vast Shale Gas & Tight Oil potential opportunities.

2nd Annual Emerging Shale Plays USA Initiative 2013 follows last year's emerging plays sell-out successes which has so far drawn in over 900 delegates from across the globe, including Emerging Shale Plays USA Initiative 2012 (March 21 - 22, 2012 Houston, Texas), and Emerging Shale & Tight Plays Canada 2012 (July 18 - 19, 2012 Calgary, Canada), which paved the way for this 2nd Annual USA Initative.

The emerging plays series also includes 'Shale Gas & Tight Oil Argentina 2012' (January 2012), followed by 'Shale Gas & Tight Oil Argentina II' ( September 2012), and the next in the serie for 2013 - Emerging Shale & Tight Oil Basins, South America 2013 (February 27 - 28).


American Business Conferences (and Canadian Business Conferences) also cover the ever expanding Oil & Gas emerging markets and investment opportunities across the Americas, with past initiatives including:

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.
