Louisiana Energy Conference



The 2019 Louisiana Energy Conference (LEC) will be held in New Orleans on Tuesday afternoon May 28 through Friday, May 31, 2019 at The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans at 921 Canal Street.  


Our 2019 LEC will feature a series of more than 20 panels and presentations May 29 - 30 that will discuss key domestic and international oil and natural gas industry developments and topics. Executives from a variety of leading public and private exploration and production (E&P) and oil field services companies as well as representatives from energy-related private equity firms, industry trade groups, regulatory agencies, investment banks, institutional and industry research groups, insurance, and law firms will participate in the panel discussions.


We are pleased that our 2019 LEC qualifies for continuing education credits for Certified Financial Analysts (CFAs) and for Certified Public Accountants (CPAs).


The Conference will again host several field trips on May 31 to both offshore Gulf of Mexico and onshore south Louisiana facilities, which currently include a crew boat visit to an offshore platform and an onshore airboat trip to view marshland production facilities. Additional new field trips are under consideration.  


We have several networking events planned:


  • On Tuesday afternoon May 28th at 4:00 pm, we will open our LEC with a keynote address and presentation by Scott Schnipper, JPMorgan Private Bank’s Head of Foreign Exchange, Commodities and Rates.  His presentation is entitled: “Prosperity Promised?  The Fed, OPEC and the Intersection of Macro and Energy Markets”. The presentation and welcoming reception following it will be at the Ritz-Carlton.
  • On Wednesday, May 29th, at 6:00 pm we will return to the National World War II Museum at 945 Magazine Street for our traditional networking dinner and museum tour.  
  • On Thursday, May 30th, we will also host a post-closing, pre-field trip event from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at a venue to be announced.


Confirmed investment professional attendees will be offered the opportunity to register for one-on-one meetings with companies participating on the panels. Over 70 exploration and production (E&P) companies, oil field service companies and other panelist firms are expected to take part in the Conference.
