Thank you for attending the 2014 A&D Strategies and Opportunities Conference and Workshop

This year 550+ attendees and 29 speakers packed The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Dallas, TX for a sold-out event. Attendees experienced two solid days of networking, deal-making, industry coverage and interactive learning opportunities.

With executives from companies like American Energy Partners, Abraxas Petroleum Corp., EV Energy Partners and Jeffries & Co. in the speaker lineup, conference sessions delivered unique insights on recent transactions and covered key drivers for future acquisitions and investments.

The 2014 A&D Workshop also gave attendees a unique opportunity to test their negotiation skills through the ever-popular "Let's Make a Deal" Lab and the A&D Shark Tank. Both hands-on sessions allowed participants to practice today's most-successful A&D tactics in a fun competitive environment.

The conference may be over, but the conversation isn't. Find out what other attendees are saying about the 2014 A&D Strategies and Opportunities conference and workshop. We would love to hear about your experience too!

And be sure to save the date for next year’s event, scheduled September 9-10, 2015 at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Dallas, TX.

The position is 75% HBP and offers exposure to top Bakken operators such as EOG Resources Inc. (NYSE: EOG), Oasis Petroleum Inc. (NYSE: OAS) and Statoil ASA (NYSE: STO). Cawley, Gillespie and Associates Inc. reports there are more than 1,700 Bakken/Three Forks drilling opportunities in the acreage.
