Looking ahead: Where A&D Begins

As oil prices stabilize and companies set spending thresholds higher, battle-tested producers have emerged leaner – and acquisitions and divestitures are central to their 2017 playbooks. Searching for new sources of capital? Want access to the next hot play? Oil and Gas Investor's Energy Capital Conference puts you in the driver's seat.

Join us April 17–18, as 300+ industry leaders, business development professionals and financial experts gather in Austin to listen to 12 executive-level speakers and discuss best practices on how to acquire and exploit assets. The annual Energy Capital Conference Golf Tournament and Welcome Dinner are a few of the many opportunities to network with startup CEOs, billionaire oilmen and A&D aces looking for assets. Don’t miss this once-a-year opportunity to hear and connect with some of the brightest leaders in the industry!

New for 2017: Our expanded program will focus on best practices for accessing capital to secure strategic A&D assets.
