Houston, Texas

Bespoke 1-2-1 networking between North American operators, financiers, investors and international energy experts

North America Assembly 2018

Over the years, the North America Assembly & Awards Dinner has consistently offered bespoke one-to-one networking for over 300 senior executives in Houston. In 2018, Oil & Gas Council hosted the 10th North America Assembly, hosting a record number 350 C-level delegates from a cross-section of the industry, allowing us to, once again, successfully connect North American operators to the investor community.

With 47 industry – leading speakers engaged in discussions on panels focusing on Royalties & Minerals, Financing Strategies, Private Equity and all major regional basins, as well as a lunch panel focusing on Female Energy in Leadership – the 10th Edition of North America Assembly kept up its reputation as the leading senior meeting platform and content sharing forum in the region.

At the 2018 Awards Dinner, we honored Wil VanLoh, Founder & CEO, Quantum Energy Partners as the Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient, honoring his lifetime work and achievements in the industry. Watch the video the Oil & Gas Council made in honor of Wil here.

Thank you to all of the delegates, speakers and sponsors who joined us in Houston this September.

Meet The Speakers

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. 

2018 Awards Dinner

Our Lifetime Achievement Award celebrates the triumphs and successes of those individuals who have made a true difference in their industry. These executives are responsible for pioneering new frontiers, pushing boundaries, for inspiring others and for achieving growth in challenging markets as well as giving back to the communities. They are those that we should be proud of and that we benchmark industry excellence to.
