Producers continue to hone their time-tested, efficient processes and squeeze every dollar from their best wells as the market shows signs of hope. The DUG Rockies conference and exhibition corrals the regions’ top players to participate in profound discussions on the current stamina of the industry and what’s next for producers in the Rockies and Northern Great Plains.
