  • 1:30 – 2:00 Afternoon Break/Vendor Fair
  • 2:00 – 3:00 “The New Era of Land Administration” – Lucas McGuire, President, Endatus – This presentation aims to highlight several benefits of the technological advances currently available, from storage, to data manipulation, to navigating the public records readily available online. Examples of some of these would be cloud-based storage systems, electronic data transfer systems, GIS-enhanced lease and well tracking, and web-based databases and acreage overlays. It will discuss the many ways these features can be integrated into existing systems or used as stand-alone systems, reducing the need for people to be in-house or companies to be paper-based. These advances allow exploration and production companies to keep a tight rig schedule, track leasehold acreage properly, maintain leases by tracking obligations and therefore to keep a solid production focus.
  • 3:00 – 3:15 Short Break
  • 3:15 – 4:15 “The Current Status of US Hydrocarbon Exports” Tom Seng, Professor, University of Tulsa – The abundance of crude oil and natural gas production in the US has led to an increase in the exportation of several forms of hydrocarbons. Raw crude oil, condensate, dry natural gas, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and, natural gas liquid exports continue to grow. Infrastructure changes and new projects have aided the process of getting these various products to market. As a result, the US is the world’s leading producer of total hydrocarbons and global demand is expected to continue to grow.
