4th Annual Energy Capital Conference - Sponsored by Founders Aviation

The Game Has Changed


$100 oil. A new landscape in the Middle East. The shale plays’ impact on capital spending and company strategy. Capital may be plentiful, but how do you deploy it to create the most value? The E&P industry keeps shifting tactics: producers and investors have been chasing oil, but contrarians are starting to rethink natural gas.
