2015 Conference

Opening Keynote: How The Game Has Changed

Last year we asked if the shale boom was sustainable. Now with lower commodity prices, the rules have changed—and so have the questions. Are impacts short term or long term? What is the timing of an oil price recovery, and when does U.S. production growth roll over? What is Wall Street's view?


Panel: Capital Alternatives
