Hot Breakfast & Networking
Welcome & Opening Remarks
Steve Toon, Editor-in-Chief, Oil and Gas Investor
Opening Keynote: Oversupplied Or Filling The Gap?
All capital plans begin with price forecasts, but the whims of OPEC, geopolitical tensions and the strength (or weakening) of the dollar make that an erratic target. With oil significantly improved year-over-year and natural gas range bound, where are prices going from here?
Tom Petrie, Chairman, Petrie Partners
Analyst Spotlight: Shale Deep Dive
This basin-by-basin analysis delves into productivity and EUR gains—or losses.
Speaker TBA, RS Energy
Roundtable: Private Equity—Incubating New Plays
As public companies have shifted away from acquisitions to appease shareholders, private equity has stepped in to fill the void. But now we’re seeing private capital move out of high-dollar plays as the Permian and Scoop/Stack, and planting flags in less obvious locales. How is private equity adapting to the current environment, and where is it finding new sweet spots?
Murphy Markham, Managing Partner, EnCap Investments, LLC
Sean O'Donnell, Managing Director, Quantum Energy Partners
Spotlight: Private Credit Funds
Facing stricter OCC standards and under pressure from banks, nearly half of all E&Ps with bank debt coming due are finding their grade is substandard. Private debt may be their answer to refinance and provide capital to grow.
Roundtable: The Push & Pull Of Public Markets
Wall Street pulled the plug on public oil and gas equities last year, and the sector is still demanding proof of cash flow before investing. High-yield investors seemed eager to fill the gap, but debt comes with a price. How will the public markets affect access to capital this year, and can an IPO get any traction?
Spotlight: A&D Trends & Drivers Today
The shifting tides in capital flows have impacted A&D. Who are the buyers now, who’s selling, and where do the opportunities lie?
Roundtable: Small Ball—Raising Money For Little Deals
With big-name private equity aiming for bigger and bigger acquisitions, how are seekers of smaller deals supposed to get a financial foothold? These capital providers offer opportunities for players seeking deals less than $100 million.
Stewart Coleman, Vice President, Pearl Energy Investments
J.W. Sikora, Managing Partners and Co-Founder, Cibolo Energy Partners
George McCormick, Managing Partner, Outfitter Energy Capital
Spotlight: The Case For Natty
If natural gas is going to be $3 forever, as sentiment implies, why then do we see capital flowing into gassy basins such as the Haynesville Shale, the dry Eagle Ford and the Rockies?
Roundtable: The Potential of Artificial Intelligence On ROI
Data analytics and machine learning could be the next game changer in the oil and gas space, similar to the paradigm shift of shale. From geology and petrophysics to reservoir quality and land, the ability to massage massive amounts of data has the potential to improve results, and ultimately separate the haves from the have-nots.
