BBI International announced this week the 2019 dates for two North American shale conferences covering the Bakken and Permian basins. The Bakken Conference & Expo, one of North Dakota’s premier shale oil events, will take place July 16-17 in Bismarck, North Dakota. The Permian Conference & Expo, a premier Permian shale oil event, will take place October 15-16 in Midland, Texas. 

“The Bakken Conference & Expo, which focuses on Bakken Play technologies and efficiencies, has been an annual event that has explored the new products and services helping shale oil producers in the Bakken,” says Luke Geiver, program director at BBI International. “We are excited to add The Permian Conference & Expo to our conference lineup and explore and promote the advancements in the Permian shale play as well.”   

The Permian Conference & Expo will be the first-ever major shale event held at the state-of-the-art Midland Convention Center.
