Industry Experts and Major Energy Firms Are Set to Present at the 2015 Bakken Oil Conference

Produced by BBI International and The Bakken magazine, the Second Annual Bakken Conference & Expo Will Provide Attendees With a Comprehensive Overview of the Current State of the Bakken Shale Play

GRAND FORKS, ND--(Marketwired - May 22, 2015) - BBI International announced this week the agenda for the 2nd annual Bakken Conference & Expo, North Dakota's premier shale oil event produced by The Bakken magazine. Taking place July 27-29 in Grand Forks, North Dakota, the 2015 agenda -- featuring the latest innovations and developments in shale oil extraction -- is tightly focused on cutting-edge technological developments in the shale oil industry, from showcasing efficiencies in oil and gas recovery to fully dissecting the current status of the Bakken job market, as well as the latest changes in government policy. "The diversity of speakers we've assembled will provide attendees with a full overview of what is currently happening in the Bakken," says John Nelson, director of marketing and sales at BBI International. "More than half of all presenters slated for the event hold the title of President, CEO or Director, including a keynote address from Continental Resources."

The 2015 program will provide in-depth analysis and timely presentations from 60-plus speakers focused on the following:

  • exploration and production trends
  • infrastructure and construction updates
  • logistical challenges
  • investor perspective
  • new product and technology offerings

"As Bakken-focused businesses continue to navigate the low crude price environment, two themes continue to emerge: how to find efficiencies and how to reduce operating costs. We've worked with industry leaders to find the stories and presentations that show what efficiency and cost-reduction efforts look like," says Luke Geiver, program director of The Bakken Conference & Expo and editor of The Bakken magazine. "Because the event mimics the content of our print publication, attendees will receive valuable insight on multiple elements of the Bakken play."
