CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - Oct 3, 2013) - PLS Inc. today announced that its Fall 2013 Calgary DEALMAKERS™ Expo this Tuesday, October 8 will feature, among others, upstream opportunities in the Cardium, Duvernay, Nordegg, Peace River Arch, Slave Point and other Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan plays. This power-packed, one-day oil and gas prospect and property expo starts 8:30 am on Tuesday, October 8 at the TELUS Centre, 120 9th Avenue South in downtown Calgary.

DEALMAKERS is open to buyers, sellers and capital providers, making it the oil and gas industry's purest exchange for buying and selling prospects and property while also funding development projects. The oil and gas expo is presented by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Landmen (CAPL), Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists (CSPG), Explorers & Producers Association of Canada (EPAC) and Calgary Global Exploration Forum (CGEF). PLS expects 65 booths filled with deal prospects and over 400 oil and gas industry professionals in attendance. The forum helps create a venue large enough for attendees to gain thorough knowledge of the current deal market yet intimate enough to engage in meaningful and productive introductions and negotiations with exhibitors.

Private equity groups, banks and mezzanine lenders regularly attend DEALMAKERS oil & gas expo to network with energy industry professionals. Carefully-vetted capital providers have become a distinguished value-added component of the DEALMAKERS events. PLS is bringing together some of the biggest names in global energy finance and advisory under the same roof on October 8 to meet with prospective buyers and sellers. They include The Carlyle Group, Canadian Western Bank, Macquarie Energy Capital, SW Capital Partners, Invico Capital, Grafton Asset Management, Osprey Capital Partners, Durham Capital and Black Spruce Merchant Capital.

Among the many registered Canadian E&P Companies showing prospects and properties will include Bonavista Energy, Enerplus, Husky Oil, Santonia Energy, Tangle Creek Energy and Woma Energy. DEALMAKERS will also feature several US cross-border opportunities with US E&P Company exhibitors such as Manti Exploration, Pipeline Oil & Gas, Cottonwood Natural Resources, White Butte Resources, and Preferred Oil & Gas. With the addition of our newest international partner CGEF, DEALMAKERS now has an International Section featuring global E&P Companies such as New Zealand Energy Corp, Platino Energy Corp, Manas Petroleum, Sherritt International Corp, Tamboran Resources and SOCO International.  

The Toronto Stock Exchange is sponsoring a series of industry-focused breakout sessions throughout the day. Brief, information-packed presentations will cover topics including A&D, drilling deals and JVs and energy finance with speakers such as Bruce Edgelow of ATB Financial, Barry Munro of Ernst & Young and Ian Van Staalduinen of BMO Capital Markets.

To wrap up the day, CAPL will host a Landmen Networking & Recruiting Reception (open bar), connecting executives, landmen and students for a unique opportunity to network, source capital and recruit next-generation professionals. Olds College, Mount Royal University and the University of Calgary's Petroleum Land Undergraduate Society will all be exhibiting and bringing students to the show.
