Course Content

Unconventional oil and natural gas plays are essential to meet global energy needs in the coming decades.  The United States contains vast untapped commercial resources that provide energy independence and protect national security.  Technological advances in development, production and distribution can provide these resources in an environmentally clean and efficient manner.  Emerging technologies from fossil energy companies promise a wide diversity of solutions to these challenges.

Additionally, the U.S. shale industry is rebounding and delivering record cash flows.   These companies have reduced debt and reined in production growth in pursuit of shareholder demands for more favorable financial models which is winning back investors.  Now with crude headed toward $100 a barrel, production growth and capital spending are climbing again, led by the supermajors and private operators.   The sweet spot of returning free cash flow and production growth is poised to advance our industry.

We have asked our Executive Plenary Panel to share their perspectives on the current state of the industry as well as evolution to cleaner energy from unconventional plays in the U.S. and the globe in partnership with renewable energy systems while simultaneously returning cash flow and production growth.
