Description

Sponsor:    Seaport Global Securities

The Permian region produces over 3.4 million barrels of oil and 11.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas a day and it is projected to continue rising for years to come. It is considered a world class resource with low costs and hundreds of active rigs operating on leases held by a range of companies spanning from newly formed start-ups to the supermajors. Please join the Business Development group at the Four Seasons Houston for a panel hosted by Seaport's Global Head of E&P Research, Mike Kelly. We will hear executive leaders from ATX Energy Partners, Lilis Energy, Rosehill Resource and Surge Energy talk about what potential the basin holds for them as growth-driven Permian players.

We will kick off with our popular 5-6 PM networking happy hour followed by the 6-7 PM presentation and Q&A. Both will be on the third floor mezzanine.
