About the Series

Battle of the Basins is a four-part speaker series that features information about the top basins in our country today. The series will kick-off with a “Super Basins” presentation followed by three basin-specific presentations that will include the average well type curve, cost structure, marketing and take-away capacity, key challenges from a regulatory perspective, and more.

Following the fourth presentation, all attendees will be invited to vote on which basin won the “battle”. The winner will be announced at our annual holiday party on Thursday, December 6, and a $1,500 donation will be given to the Oilfield Helping Hands Chapter associated with their basin. In addition, each attendee who votes will receive an entry into a prize drawing for restaurant and retail gift cards. Join us for one, two, or all four sessions to find out which basin is the best!
