FORT WORTH, Texas -- August 1, 2013

Celebrating its 20^th year, NAPE Expo, the world’s largest E&P (upstream)
expo, is again bringing together oil and gas industry leaders and experts to
its Business Conference to be held Wednesday, August 14, 2013, during Summer
NAPE Expo. This year’s theme will be “Transforming the Energy Landscape” as
operators now are turning their focus from the “land grab” phase to harvesting
their undeveloped plays and returning cash. Speakers are set to address many
of the key focus areas which will shape the future of the oil and gas industry
including operational excellence, transportation, midstream developments,
mergers and acquisitions, and technology.

landscape of America,” said S. Craig Young, Senior Director of NAPE. “Along
with that success, the transformation has brought challenges and opened the
door for more ingenuity in our industry. Our notable speaker line-up will
delve into a myriad of these issues,” he concluded.

This year’s lineup of distinguished speakers and panelists includes Keynote
Speakers: Ron McClain, President Products and Pipelines, Kinder Morgan; Howard
Gruenspecht, Deputy Administrator, Energy Information Administration; and
