Louisiana Energy Conference


The 2018 Louisiana Energy Conference will be held at the Westin Canal Place

on Tuesday-Friday, May 29 - June 1, 2018

The 2018 Louisiana Energy Conference will be held on May 29 – June 1, 2018 at the Westin Canal Place Hotel in New Orleans and will again feature two full days of topical panels on May 30 - 31 that will address key U.S. and international energy industry developments and topics. 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 1.


Oil prices have improved significantly in the last year and the industry is increasingly optimistic; however, most companies have been guarded in their response to expanding their business. We look forward to hearing from executive management from both public and private companies, with a primary focus on E&P and oil field services, to learn more about their 2018 activity levels and capital expenditure budgets, and what their expectations are for the future.  We will also have several panels of private equity firms and banking institutions who will discuss their views on energy investing. The addition of private company executives to the panels continues to add a unique dimension to the discussion of key industry issues.


We have several networking events planned:


We will open our Conference at 4 pm on Tuesday afternoon, May 29th with a keynote speaker addressing global energy market matters.  It will be followed by a welcoming reception. 


We are pleased to announce that we will return to the National World War II Museum on Wednesday evening, May 30th for our traditional dinner and museum tour. 


We will also host a Thursday evening, May 31st post-closing, pre-field trip event from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. 


This year we will again host several exciting field trips on Friday, June 1st to offshore Gulf of Mexico and onshore south Louisiana facilities. We currently plan to have a crew boat trip to an offshore platform as well as an airboat trip onshore to view marshland production operations, a refinery tour, and a fourth trip currently being considered.
