Energy Workforce & Technology Council COO Molly Determan joined a panel at the Permian Energy Dialogues in Midland on September 14 to discuss opportunities for collaboration and growth in domestic energy production and resources. She addressed the need for strong collaboration between the services sector and operators, specifically in supply chain, field operations and pricing recovery.
“However, there are headwinds with a hampered supply chain and labor market, and policy hurdles to attracting top talent and accessing capital,” she said. “In order to continue to meet growing demand while managing supply chain and workforce challenges, it will be essential for the services sector and operators to collaborate throughout the production process.”
The panel was moderated by Steven H. Pruett, President & CEO, Elevation Resources, and included Diaco Aviki, Chief Operating Officer, Crestwood Midstream; Ryan Keys, President and Co-Founder, Triple Crown Resources; and Rob Jennings, Policy Advisor, API.
The discussion also addressed the legislative and regulatory environment and what the mid-term elections could mean for the industry, as well as pipeline capacity, the need to build out the energy infrastructure, the importance of independent oil and gas operators, and the impact of financial investor ESG goals.
