The Oil & Gas Council once again hosted an extremely convenient and well organised event with its North American Assembly. It was an excellent venue to network while discussing the state of the North American oil & gas industry with top executives and global thought leaders. The Oil & Gas Council created an agenda that was topical to market conditions. Huge value add from my perspective.

I am always pleased when I attend the North Am assembly. I always end up making a valuable connection with someone new.

Chris Bentley

President & CEO, Bellatorum Resources

The Oil & Gas Company did an immense amount of work and planning to bring it all together and you did it well! I met some great connections and really enjoyed some attendees that I will keep in touch with.

Michelle Smith

Vice President Land, Quiat Companies, LLC

I think what the Oil and Gas Council does a good job of is anticipating the needs of their attendees and actually being very helpful with the networking experience.

Looking Back - North America Assembly 2019

Greg Vesey, Chairman, CEO & Managing Director, LNG Limited chatted to us about the state of the LNG market in the USA, how trade wars are effecting business and how LNG Limited is reducing their environmental footprint.

Vance Scott, Managing Director of Alix Partners chatted to us about trends in Energy Transition, AI and Machine Learning and the major opportunities for the next three years in Oil & Gas.

The United States has taken a unique view on the issues of mineral rights and developed a system that is typically only found in that country. We explore this maze of uncertainty.

The global energy transition firmly focused on the decarbonisation of the energy sources that are utilised to power everyday life. However, the Trump administration has shied away from committing to the decarbonisation of the energy sector

Ahead of the North America Assembly 2019, we asked select speakers what their views are on key topics. Here are their answers

Success Stories

“Thank you for putting on a great conference. I enjoyed participating and definitely think it was time well spent! You and your team were very organized and the topics were of interest to the attendees.”

Martin Thalken

Chairman & CEO, Protégé Energy III LLC

“The Oil and Gas Council continues to deliver quality participants and timely topics about our industry. Always a great conference and keeps getting better every year.”

Jaime Gualy

Managing Director Oil and Gas Investment Banking, KLR Group

“I have committed to taking part in the Oil & Gas Council’s North America Assembly because this is the only time in Houston one can meet so many thought leaders during a very entertaining event.”
