Infocast's Emerging North American Shale Plays 2012

Major Producers Snapping Up Additional Acreage to Pursue Potentially Successful Drilling Operations

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - Dec 6, 2011) - Infocast brings the Emerging North American Shale Plays Conference to the Grand Hyatt Denver in Denver, CO on January 11 - 13, 2012 as the industry looks to reap the benefits of the white hot shale market. The age of oil and gas in the region has just begun and based on Anadarko Petroleum's positive assessment of its Horizontal Niobrara drilling program located in the Niobrara Shale, other major producers are anticipating continued success for decades to come. These results have boosted the viability of shale in this region and have made it imperative to attend Emerging North American Shale Plays to help profit from these oil and gas plays.

According to a recent Anadarko Petroleum press release, the company is "confident [that] the liquids-rich Horizontal Niobrara and Codell opportunity provides a net resource potential of 500 million to 1.5 billion BOE (barrels of oil equivalent)." This positive news is the perfect backdrop for the Emerging North American Shale Plays conference as participants will meet and network with key industry players and get a status report on leasing activity, players and the latest available production data from the Niobrara oil play.

The event will also bring together geologists, E&P companies, field service companies, infrastructure providers, investors, consultants, government officials and other experts providing attendees with the most knowledgeable people they need to meet and form relationships with to succeed in this challenging play.

The Summit will boast a diverse roster of over 40 speakers from companies including Black & Veatch Management Consulting, Rangeland Energy, LLC, Drilling Info, Inc., Colorado School of Mines, Lyatsky Geoscience Research & Consulting Ltd., Wildcat Technologies, LLC, Department of Natural Resources, Energy Branch, NL, Energy Spectrum and SAIC Energy, Environment & Infrastructure, LLC among many others.
