Louisiana Energy Conference

2017 Louisiana Energy Conference will be held at the Westin Canal Place on Tuesday-Friday, May 30 - June 2




Preliminary List of Panels and Panelist Firms Now Available Under 2017 Agenda



The 2017 Louisiana Energy Conference will be held on May 30 – June 2, 2017 at the Westin Canal Place Hotel in New Orleans and will again feature two full days of topical panels on May 31 - June 1 that will address key U.S. and international energy industry developments and issues. Based on continued strong response to our field trip opportunities in past years, we will again host field trips to a variety of offshore and onshore industry facilities on Friday, June 2.


Our Conference will again be comprised solely of panel discussions rather than typical scripted company presentations.  The addition of private company executives and private equity investors to the panels continues to add a new dimension to the discussion of key industry issues.  Executives from over 70 public and private exploration and production and oil field services companies as well as representatives from energy-related industry trade groups, regulatory agencies, investment banks, institutional research groups, insurance and law firms are expected to participate in the panel discussions.  


We are pleased to add several new events at this year’s Conference:
