Full Description

Please join the SPE Business Development Group for talks by Silverback Exploration’s newly appointed President and CEO Stephen Lipari, AMEREDEV’s President and CEO Parker Reese, and Rock Oil’s President Jason Cansler. Collectively, these three companies sold nearly $2.5 billion in Permian assets since November 2016.  

This unique and exciting event will allow the audience to hear first-hand accounts of how these companies were built and subsequently sold for large profits. The Permian Basin is dominating the current A&D marketplace and this is a great opportunity to learn from those who were on the sell-side of large deals and perhaps what’s next in store for these companies and the Permian.

The Business & Social Networking will begin at 5:00 pm in the Mezzanine with the program and Q&A session beginning at 6pm.
