Louisiana Energy Conference Moves Online

Industrial Area Of Baton Rouge, Oil Refinery, New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS – From Al Petrie Advisors:

As previously announced, due to the impact on traveling and in-person meetings caused by COVID-19, our 2020 Louisiana Energy Conference (“LEC”) will be held 100% online through our website, www.LouisianaEnergyConference.com.  It will feature a series of 13 presentations and discussions on Wednesday, May 27 and Thursday, May 28 that will address key domestic and international oil and natural gas industry developments and topics.

We are pleased to welcome back many of our popular speakers from past years who will provide their views on the current state of the energy industry. We have added several new sessions we believe are particularly relevant in the current environment. This knowledgeable group of industry participants and advisors will accept questions online from registered participants during their respective presentations.  

There is no cost to participate in our Conference but you must register here to join any of the sessions. After your initial registration, to access each session you will only be asked to provide your email address. We strongly suggest you register prior to May 27 to avoid any potential delays associated with registering on the actual days of the Conference.

Below is the final agenda for the Conference.  Each session will be accessed through www.LouisianaEnergyConference.com and begin on the hour and last up to 60 minutes, with any related slides posted to the LEC site.  Participants will be able to electronically submit questions during each session.  We will maintain an audio recording and copies of the slides for each session on our Conference website for 60 days after the event concludes, as appropriate.
