Airlines serving Midland are Continental (IAH, Houston’s Bush Intercontinental and from Denver’s Intn’l Airport) and Southwest Airlines (from Hobby in south Houston, from Dallas’ Love field, and from Phoenix and Las Vegas). American Eagle serves Midand from the Dallas Regional Airport (DFW). Continental flights are either the Brazilian Embraer jets or United turboprops, the Southwest flights are Boeing 737 jet service, and the Eagle flights can be either regional jets or turboprops.
Attendees should note that the Midland/Odessa hotels are very difficult to reserve due to the intense oil and gas activity in the region – several room blocks in addition to the Doubletree one (see conference website) have been established and early reservations are not only recommended but probably necessary. The largest room block has been set up at the Midland Doubletree (by Hilton) across the street from the Midland Center in Downtown Midland (http://doubletree3.hilton.com/en/hotels/texas/doubletree-by-hilton-hotel-midland-plaza-MAFDTDT/index.html/). The Room Block Code is “CO2.” Other room blocks are listed under the hotel tab. Activity in the Permian Basin is intense and rooms are limited in the Midland and Odessa Hotel room blocks so, again, early registration is recommended.
