Full Description

 

ABSTRACT of Presentation

 

America’s oil and gas producers share a long history with their bankers and other sources of capital. This relationship has weathered many boom and bust cycles yet it still endures. The last three years have seen over 134 E&P, 155 OFS and 21 Midstream bankruptcies in the oil patch with hundreds of billions of dollars of equity and debt destroyed. Even those in the industry might wonder whether anyone can find new capital sources these days. But they would be wrong. There seems to be even more capital available today than ever – for the right team and the right rocks. But that has been the case ever since Spindletop. Buddy Clark, will discuss future access to capital for producers in the context of the historical evolution of oil and money and the new changes in capital structures for oil and gas producers.
