The AIPN International Petroleum Summit is currently taking place at the Marriott Marquis, May 21 -23, 2019.  This is not a conference for lightweights.  These are some serious folks getting into the details of the petroleum industry; like law, accounting, environmental regulations, permitting, safety, and the software for managing these topics.


Here is a short list of some of the topics:

  • Poverty, Carbon and the Role of Natural Gas
  • Operating in Mexico
  • Weathering the Storm: Understanding and Solving Carbon and Climate Issues Related to Oil and Gas
  • Venezuela – What is the end game?
  • Brazil’s Reforms and Opportunities
  • Geopolitics & Short-Term Oil & Gas Prices
  • The Evolution of Talos Energy and Key Strategies for Future Success
  • Entering the Age of Natural Gas
  • Exploration Strategy in the Shale Era
  • The Gulf of Mexico: Competing for Investment in an Expanding Global E&P Market
  • Disruptive Technologies and Practices in the Oil & Gas Sector


This conference is a real “gem”.  I met folks from all over the world:  Brazil, Mexico, and Portugal. The software and artificial intelligence is what caught my attention.   I am going to be following this event in the future.


For more information, please view their website:  Meanwhile, down below, I have photos from their blowout gala and awards banquet.  The event was held at The Hobby Center For The Performing Arts.  What a treat.
