DUG (Developing Unconventional Gas) East takes place November 15-17 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA. This high-level event covers the booming oil and gas activity throughout the Appalachian Basin. Leading industry, government and association executives speak on topics ranging from exploration and drilling in the Marcellus and Utica shales to environmental "best practices," changing economics, demand forecasts, technology and field performance.

In 2011, DUG East attracted more than 2,600 attendees from the oil and gas industry, the financial community and service companies, becoming the largest unconventional resource event in the world.

Two technical workshops also are offered on Tuesday, November 15, the day before the full conference convenes. One workshop addresses environmental practices and water management; the other focuses on midstream infrastructure and finance issues.
