Investing in Oil & Gas: Perspectives from Growth Equity & Private Equity

Please join us for the launch event of the SPE-GCS Investment & Finance Initiative, created to open a dialogue between SPE members and the oil and gas investment community.  This will be the first of a series of meetings focused on investment in the oil & gas sector, from early stage to growth stage, and mature companies.  This launch event will feature partners from leading Oil & Gas on Growth Equity funds, who will discuss how to interact with the private equity/growth equity sector, trends in investment in growth equity, opportunities and challenges of working with private equity investors, and Q&A relating to investment in the energy sector.  All speakers actively invest in oilfield services (OFS) companies.


A cocktail reception will follow the event and is sponsored by our host Vinson & Elkins.
