2019 Oil & Gas 101: An Introduction Into the Industry

Individuals from across the services and equipment sector gathered on March 20-21 for a comprehensive overview of oil and gas production, hosted by the PESA Emerging Executives Committee and sponsored by Tudor, Pickering, Holt and Company. This spring’s Oil & Gas 101 attendance was at an all-time high, again representing an extraordinarily diverse group, both in companies and functions. An audience of attendees across multiple disciplines also made for excellent discussion, Q&A sessions and networking opportunities.

Dan Pickering, President & Head of Asset Management, Tudor, Pickering, Holt and Company, kicked off the two-day seminar with an Energy Market Outlook to set the stage for the seminar followed by PESA member Omeid Rahimian, Project Manager, Oceaneering, who gave an in-depth history of the industry.

Multiple speakers from other companies across various sectors then followed, giving attendees a comprehensive view of the oil and gas industry and its economic impact on a world stage. Using technological advances, these companies have recently been able to greatly increase production and become among the fastest in the world.
