In addition to the need to accommodate growth, industry factors contributed to the move. Early in 2014, the prediction of increased activity in the region influenced the decision. And recently, the consistency of rig counts in the Tuscaloosa Marine and talk about a renaissance of the Haynesville Shale have solidified the need for a trade show in the area, even in the face of current oil prices.
The focus of the oilfield expo will be solutions for a tough market as companies from every sector of the oil and gas industry take a hard look at operating processes to identify opportunities, from negotiating better prices with vendors to incorporating cost-saving technology that can help sharpen their competitive edge.
In addition to competitive pricing, exhibiting companies are bringing the latest in industry technology to the show floor. Exosent Engineering, will debut their newest trailer, designed for liquefied propane gas (LPG) hauling, in booth #1819.
The newly engineered, 11,600-gallon ExoLPG trailer is fabricated from a unique grade of high-strength, pressure-vessel quality steel plate and its conical design lowers the center of gravity by one foot. These features are designed to help users achieve increased levels of safety, strength, and performance.
“Exosent Engineering is the only shop in North America that is both ASME U2 and DOT certified, which allows us to leverage the latest computing technologies for more accurate engineering calculations,” said UV Doron, President and Co-Founder of Exosent Engineering. “This enables designs that are safer and lower to the ground with unique weight savings.”
With booth space for 475 exhibitors, including indoor heavy equipment space, the oilfield expo makes its move to Shreveport, Louisiana after four years in Texas. The expo is open to oil and gas professionals from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 1 and 9 a.m. to noon April 2.

U.S. Tape Company, a manufacturer and distributor of oil tank gauging tapes, which will be exhibiting in Booth #1112 at the show. “If I can save them 20 to 25 percent over my competitor, why wouldn’t they buy my product?”
