To say that the oil and gas industry in Louisiana has had its ups and downs is an understatement. When times are good, they’re real good. And when times are rough…well, you have to take a good hard look at the business and make hard decisions about where to spend, where to cut, and how to keep the operation afloat with fewer resources and shorter funds.

The Oil & Gas Conference will help you plan for the ebbs and flows. We’ve pulled together industry leaders, economic advisors, and organizational strategists to give you an update on where we are, where we’re headed, and how to make sure your organization is ready to ride the wave.
