Virtual Conference & Symposium

What is the 2020 VirtuaLEC?
Due to the impact on traveling and in-person meetings caused by the COVID-19 situation, our 2020 LEC will be held 100% online. It will feature a series of 13 presentations and discussions on Wednesday, May 27 and Thursday, May 28 that will address key domestic and international oil and natural gas industry developments and topics. A knowledgeable group of industry participants and advisors are scheduled to present and will accept questions online from registered participants. There is no cost to participate in the symposium but you must register through our web site at REGISTER.
After your initial registration, to access each session you will only be asked to provide your email address. We strongly suggest you register prior to May 27 to avoid any potential delays associated with registering on the actual days of the Conference.
Anyone who previously registered for our 2020 LEC will have their registrations remain in place for our virtual event. If you were charged a registration fee, we will refund your full payment but maintain your registration for the online event. If your plans change, you can cancel your registration.
We have already finalized our Conference plans for next year and our 2021 LEC will be held at the Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans May 25 -28, 2021 and hope you will mark your calendars to join us live and in-person then. Registration for 2021 will open later this year.
Our final agenda with timing of each of the sessions is shown below. Each session will begin on the hour and last up to 60 minutes, with any related slides posted to the LEC site.
Participants will be able to electronically submit questions during each session. We will maintain an audio recording and copies of the slides for each session on our Conference website for 60 days after the event concludes, as appropriate.
