Permian & Peak DemandPermian & Peak Demand: Death of OPEC?

REGISTER | ADD TO CALENDAR

The world of oil and gas is changing. On the supply side, the rebound in production from the Permian has transformed the geopolitical pressures and has raised the question if OPEC has any ability to control prices. With the projected transformation of the transportation fleet to electrical systems, does the idea of "lower for longer" have validity? These are some of the questions that will be addressed at the symposium on November 16, 2017 at the University of Houston.

Details on the speaker panel will be provided closer to the event date.
