Speaker #2 Company: Founder- Rigs to Real Estate


Speaker #2 Bio: Collin is a Petroleum Engineer with over 10 years’ experience in various roles within the O&G industry. After experiencing the volatility of our industry first-hand, he was drawn to the stable income and tax benefits of real estate investing. After building a portfolio of large multifamily assets, Collin started the Rigs to Real Estate community to help other O&G professionals utilize real estate to smooth out the ups and downs of our industry.


Speaker #2 Abstract: Rigs to Real Estate: Sidetracking the "Boom or Bust" Cycle


It’s time to stop living from boom to bust. This is not a new problem, in fact, multiple generations of oilfield personnel before us have experienced the cyclical volatility of our industry. The remedy is to generate a stable, predictable income stream that is not based on commodity prices or the stock market. This presentation will show how investing real estate can be an ideal method for O&G professionals to achieve this goal.

Speaker #3 Abstract: New Opportunities for Subsurface Engineers and Geoscientists in the Digital Revolution


There is a digital revolution underway in all sectors of our economy. Many students and working professionals are learning about big data, big data analytics and data-driven prediction for the first time. Yet, for energy engineers and geoscientists this is all familiar, as I like to say, ‘Energy has been working in big data long before tech learned about big data’. We integrate large and varied datasets with geostatistics and data driven prediction to solve difficult problems and support high-value decisions all the time. I teach data science, spatial data analytics and machine learning to energy professionals and I’ve seen first-hand that they are well-prepared to augment their skills to open up new opportunities.
