MIDLAND, TX--(Marketwired - Jan 29, 2014) - PLS Inc., one of the energy industry's leading information, marketing and advisory firms, today announced that it is hosting its second DEALMAKERS Prospect and Property Expo of 2014 in Midland, Texas on February 26, at the Midland County Horseshoe, 2514 Arena Trail. This power-packed one-day oil and gas expo is the "go to" event for deal buyers, sellers and capital providers looking to initiate 2014 investments and divestitures.
This is PLS's inaugural DEALMAKERS in Midland, the heart of one of the US upstream sector's hottest M&A markets: the Permian Basin. PLS has a strong clientele in this extremely active region which saw $6.9 billion in upstream deals announced during 2013, and demand has been high for a Permian Basin oil expo. Permian deals will be heavily featured at the show, but as in all DEALMAKERS events, offerings will be shown from other areas including North Texas, East Texas, Oklahoma's SCOOP play and the Rockies. PLS is also expecting some prospects from Nevada and West Coast.
PLS hosts DEALMAKERS prospect expos several times a year in Houston, Dallas, Denver, Calgary and now Midland. The Midland show includes room for more than 80 prospect and property exhibitors in a venue large enough for attendees to gain thorough knowledge of the deal landscape yet intimate enough to engage in meaningful, productive negotiation. DEALMAKERS also enables attendees to catch up on current plays and initiate contact with the industry's preeminent leading prospect generators, explorationists, property sellers, deal-takers, operators, non-operated working interest owners, capital providers, advisors, divestiture professionals, investment bankers and other energy executives active in buying and selling oil and gas assets.
Capital providers in attendance at Midland DEALMAKERS will include Blue Rock Energy Capital II, Five States Energy Capital and PetroCap.
Compared to larger events, DEALMAKERS has consistently drawn a higher percentage of C-level executives, decision makers and real buyers. That's because by limiting attendees mainly to buy- and sell-side parties and capital providers, PLS has created the oil and gas industry's purest exchange for buying and selling properties and prospects. Attendees will also have opportunity to hear from industry experts in breakout sessions on E&P trends, the current deal market and energy finance.
PLS is accepting requests for booths at Midland DEALMAKERS. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Brad Jamison at (713)650-1212 as soon as possible.
