HOUSTON, Nov. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 2,700 oil and gas industry professionals enjoyed two successful Hart Energy conferences with a shared exhibition: the inaugural MIDSTREAM Texas and the 6th annual DUG Eagle Ford. DUG Eagle Ford is known as the largest unconventional resource event in the world and its strength was sustained despite lower crude oil prices and decreasing drilling activity. The two conferences covered strategic insights across the energy value chain. Both took place October 25-27 at Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.

DUG Eagle Ford's notable speakers included operators like Pioneer Natural Resources. Executive Vice President Ken Sheffield talked about the company's current focus: raising well productivity and lowering well costs. MIDSTREAM Texas attendees heard from EnLink Midstream CEO Barry Davis who offered encouraging words, "This industry has never seen a challenge it couldn't overcome."

As a special feature, veterans' family advocate Taya Kyle delivered a keynote address during a shared networking luncheon. She continues the legacy of her late husband Chris Kyle. His bestselling autobiography and Oscar-nominated film American Sniper immortalized his service as a Navy SEAL marksman.

Industry professionals are looking forward to Hart Energy's next event, the 21st annual Executive Oil Conference (#EOC) set for November 9-10, at the Midland County Horseshoe Arena and Pavilion in Midland, Texas. Professionals in the midstream sector are looking forward to the
7th annual Marcellus Utica-Midstream (#MUM) conference. It will be held January 26-28, 2016 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
