Pittsburgh Playmaker Forum

Sponsored by AAPG | DPA | 13 April 2016 | Pittsburgh (Coraopolis), Pennsylvania, United States


The forum is sponsored by the DPA in conjunction with two local societies, the Pittsburgh Geological Society (PGS) and the Pittsburgh Association of Petroleum Geologists (PAPG). This one-day event will be preceded with a PAPG monthly dinner meeting on the evening of April 12, 2016; providing an opportunity to come to Pittsburgh the day prior to the forum, network with local geoscientists and enjoy an Appalachian Basin technical talk.

Although the Pittsburgh Playmakers agenda is still coming together, subjects range from creative and entrepreneurial thinking, to technical talks covering Appalachian Basin shale plays (Marcellus, Utica, Upper Devonian and Rogersville) and new discoveries in the Michigan Basin. The keynote speaker will be from Rice Energy and will provide insight to the strategy and tactics used to propel a company from start up into a successful player and ultimately through an initial public offering, in an area of the Marcellus and Utica Shale plays dominated by large independent exploration and production companies. Networking opportunities will be available during the morning and afternoon breaks, before and after the luncheon and during a planned mixer after the forum.
