Producer Roundtable - Operational Efficiency, JOAs and Bankruptcy Issues

Sustaining Oklahoma’s Energy Resources (SOER) is sponsoring a roundtable forum for oil and gas producers to discuss the managing of properties that are marginal or in the red. Steve Soulé, Billy Croll, Jim Marshall and George Aubrey will discuss legal, operational, regulatory and bankruptcy issues that producers need to know as they take steps to maintain their producing properties during these low price times.

THE REAL WORLD PLAYING FIELD: Based on the word of experts testifying before the US Senate Energy Committee, the basic world free energy market is alive and well. Both the US and Iran can sell crude on the world market now and shale technology is changing the scene. The Saudis are set on holding market share and the US wind and solar producers are set up for another five years of subsidies, and on and on. And yet the experts testified that energy consumption will increase only 1% next year. The world energy producers are flooding the market. This time the Saudis are not cutting back.

We are producers. How do we compete? How do we operate properties that are in the red?

Total workshop cost: $0 | Schedule: 8:30am-11:30am
