The conference features a wide range of sellers in the cavernous George R. Brown Convention Center. Chesapeake Energy Corp., one of the country’s largest energy producers, installed a two-story set-up and handed out sales fliers for drilling fields for which the Oklahoma City company hopes to fetch tens or hundreds of millions of dollars. But the conference is dominated by far smaller outfits. Some furnished modest booths only with print-outs of squiggly seismic data representations and camouflage camping chairs. Buying a small stake in some of these groups’ drilling projects can cost less than $100,000.
Bundled up in fleece and sitting in camouflage camping chairs, attendees received the pastor's message all while witnessing God's creation at Son Valley Ranch.
