State of the Energy Industry Roundtable – The Domestic and Global Outlook

Conference will open with a panel of Energy Sector Experts on the current state of the Energy Industry, including prognostications on the short-term and long-term outlook for the industry. Almost one-year into the Trump Administration, how extensive has de-regulation been, and what impact is it having? What legislative initiatives or regulatory changes remain on the industry’s wish-list? What effect will different geo-political developments have on the energy sector? What should investors be focusing on when contemplating making investments in the energy sector? What are the bright-spots for the industry, and how can producers, suppliers and service providers prosper in the current environment?

What is the outlook for consolidations and roll-ups in the Energy sector and related industries? Which sectors (upstream, midstream or downstream) will lead deal-flow?

How can the value of portfolio companies be improved prior to a transaction?

Upstream, mid-stream and downstream companies in the energy sector have become extensively leveraged and, with oil prices stagnating in the mid-to-low $40s, addressing this issue calls for creative solutions.
