NGL and NGL Connections

Next Generation Landmen (NGL) is a group within the Dallas Association of Petroleum Landmen (DAPL) that promotes the development of young professionals in an educational and social setting to allow for professional and interpersonal growth.  NGL is mostly comprised of Landmen, Attorneys and Analysts ranging from 0-15 years of experience but all members of DAPL are encouraged to attend events.   Throughout the year NGL hosts educational luncheons, happy hours, seminars, sports events and joint meetings with Young Professionals in Energy (YPE) and the Young Professionals group within the Dallas Geological Society (DGS) and Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).

NGL Connections is a mentor program that was created in 2013 to connect Land Interns and young Landmen with Senior Landmen to address the experience gap within our profession.  NGL Connections is a great way for experienced Landmen to invest in the future of our business.  A mentorship is so valuable to the NGL’s education; it adds a dimension of training not accomplished in the classroom.  Participants arrange meetings based on their schedule and meet for lunch or happy hour to discuss important Land fundamentals, challenging work scenarios or current industry news.
