JOINT MEETING OF THE SPE-GCS GENERAL MEETING STUDY GROUP AND THE HOUSTON CHAPTER OF THE API 

After the greatest shock to drilling activity seen in the last several generations, the American oil and gas industry is slowly rebuilding itself, first with the restructuring of balance sheets, then with the completion of DUCs, and later with a return to drilling activity.  Richard will present the firm’s view of 2021 and the sequence of growth now facing the industry.
