Previous North America Speaker Interviews

Meet Chris Bentley

There are new groups popping up nearly every week trying to acquire minerals. Competition is a good thing and it forces us all to constantly improve. 

Meet Indy Chakrabarti

Machine learning continues to be the key technology that can unlock efficiency gains through automation, from the factory floor to the field and the subsurface.

Meet JP Hanson

Public equity markets have allocated capital away from E&P over the past couple of years for a variety of reasons, which has both resulted in a backlog of M&A&D assets, as well as having opened a further window for private capital. 

Meet Bob Sullivan

Similar to most US industries that employ large numbers of blue-collar workers, the talent drain is real. The industry needs to work together and identify a practical and sustainable solution to attract, retain, and grow workforces that will be needed to run operations.

Meet Kevin Price

We have seen the entrance of many Private Equity backed independents into the US GOM, and the expansion of some traditionally shallow shelf focused players further out into the deep water, deep rock plays.

Meet Juan E. Trebino

M&A and Joint Ventures are key to ensuring the development of large-scale oil and gas resources as they allow for a better allocation of technology, capital, and risks.

Meet Shaia Hosseinzadeh

The transition to shale production from conventional sources has changed the way the industry consumes capital.  

Meet Cory Weinbel

Infrastructure will play a key role in shaping which opportunities see the greatest growth. The recent downturn has once again highlighted the importance of the contractor and supplier community in helping Producers to develop safe solutions at the lowest cost.

Success Stories

“I have committed to taking part in the Oil & Gas Council’s North America Assembly because, in my experience, it is the best gathering of industry decision makers I have worked with, and is consistently a great platform for networking, sharing ideas on key industry topics, and developing new client relationships”

Robert Peterson

Partner, Oliver Wyman

“I have committed to taking part in the Oil & Gas Council’s North America Assembly because it gives me a great pulse of where the market is and good opportunity to network”

Lucia Martinez

“I enjoyed a very professional organization, solid turn out and truly high level representation. As you could imagine, I attained quite a few events in a course of my work but the North America Assembly surprised me as a true open forum. It was a genuine discussion going on, a dialogue rather than a monologue”
