OKLAHOMA CITY—Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin told oil and gas producers at the DUG Midcontinent conference on Sept. 20 that efforts to reduce workers compensation costs, train suitable workers for the industry and changes to laws governing lateral well lengths are paying off. Earlier this year, Fallin signed a bill allowing longer laterals in all geological formations in the state, not just shale. The new law allows for laterals in any target reservoir. Fallin said the state is seeing the results.
Dallas’ IOG Capital LP has entered a trio of deals that will fund up to $130 million in the Eagle Ford, the Merge area of the Stack play and the Arkoma-Woodford, the private-equity firm said Sept. 14. The DrillCo projects will be conducted through new IOG affiliate IOG Resources LLC and include a well program with Earthstone Energy Inc. (NYSE: ESTE). Two additional Oklahoma partnerships expand IOG’s investments to more than 17,000 net acres in the Stack and Merge plays.
DENVER—Dressed in a light gray suit, Cimarex Energy Co.’s (NYSE: XEC) president and CEO Tom Jorden gave a crisp welcome to the crowd and, in his no-nonsense clip, empathized with the blank stares of investors looking for solid ground beneath them. Perhaps more bluntly than other speakers at EnerCom’s The Oil and Gas Investor Conference in August, Jorden summed up the prospects for the industry as an evolving unknown.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
