Offshore Leadership Forum to Focus on Improving and Sustaining Capital Efficiency of Oil and Gas Projects

On Tuesday, December 6, 2016, Independent Project Analysis (IPA) and Offshore Magazine will bring together a select group of oil and gas executives for the Offshore Leadership Forum. The focus of the event, taking place at the Norris Centers in Houston, Texas, is discussing and sharing ideas on how to improve and sustain the capital efficiency of major oil and gas projects.

“These are the most perilous and difficult times in the petroleum Industry since 1984,” said IPA Founder and President Ed Merrow. “It is urgent that we find new approaches to petroleum development to cope with a lower price environment that may be with us from now on. This forum seeks to bring together some of the best minds in leadership in the Industry to rethink how we do the work of supplying the world with energy.”

The executives, including Merrow, will first participate in a pre-event closed-door roundtable meeting, where they will exchange perspectives on improving the engineering, design, and development of exploration and production capital projects. Event attendees will be the first to hear the ideas that come out of this discussion when a short list of speakers share insights and engage in a Q&A session later that morning.

Executives interested in influencing the E&P Industry’s future and redefining industry Best Practices are invited to attend. Visit the Offshore Leadership Forum website for registration information. Contact Neeraj Nandurdikar, IPA Director, Oil & Gas Practice, with questions about the event.
