Full Description
The explosive growth of activity in the Eagle Ford, Marcellus and Utica Shales has been accompanied by radical changes in the way production facilities have been designed, procured, manufactured and installed.  The combination of very large numbers of wells drilled and evolution of the typical producer from regional Independents to major Internationals has introduced new commercial and technical requirements as well as significant changes in the culture of onshore oil and gas producers in the US. Mr. Bowers will discuss these changes from the perspective of an integrated product and service provider in the surface facilities space.
