Louisiana Energy Conference

2018 Louisiana Energy Conference will be held at the Westin Canal Place on Tuesday-Friday, May 29 - June 1



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 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 1.


There have been signs of reduced crude oversupply on a global basis that have helped to move prices higher in late 2017. There is an expectation in the market that 2018 will see further increases in prices and overall industry activity levels.  We look forward to hearing from executive management from both public and private E&P and oil field services companies as well as principals with private equity firms to learn what their plans are for 2018 and beyond and their views on the depth, breadth and sustainability of the recovery.


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 have several networking events planned:


We will again open our Conference with an event on Tuesday afternoon May 29th which includes a keynote speaker and presentation beginning at 4:00 pm.  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, May 30th for our traditional dinner and museum tour. 


We will also host a Thursday post-closing, pre-field trip event from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm. 


Details on our networking events and field trip details are being finalized and further information will be provided on this web site and in other Conference correspondence in the coming weeks.
