Southern Energy Conference next week tackles LNG expansion, Louisiana shale plays


The inaugural Southern Energy Conference takes place next week in Lafayette at the DoubleTree by Hilton, presented jointly by the Louisiana Oil and Gas Association and the Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association.

On the agenda for the two-day event Sept. 17-18 are a Gubernatorial Forum, critical updates on the oil and gas industry and CLE credits for professionals in multiple fields. Among the session topics: Louisiana Shale Plays, Diversity in Energy, Energy on the Federal Level, Outlook on the Gulf of Mexico, LNG Expansion in Louisiana and Practical Energy Policies Nationwide. On Wednesday, keynote speaker for the luncheon is Justin Ehrenwerth of The Water Institute of the Gulf.

Candidates Eddie Rispone and Congressman Ralph Abraham have both confirmed their attendance and Governor John Bel Edwards has been invited. The Gubernatorial Forum will take place in the evening on Tuesday, September 17th.

“Louisiana deserves to hear from the gubernatorial candidates about their qualifications for the state’s highest office and their vision for Louisiana’s driving economic force, and that is unquestionably our upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas industry,” said Gifford Briggs, President of Louisiana Oil and Gas Association. “The combined efforts of our allied organizations to bring the candidates together to present to the entire spectrum of Louisiana’s energy industry makes the first Southern Energy Conference this fall’s must-attend event.”

“The partnership between LMOGA and LOGA to host the Southern Energy Conference highlights the importance of this can’t-miss industry event,” said Tyler Gray, President and General Counsel of LMOGA. “The two-day event will cover all industry sectors and priority issues impacting the oil and natural gas industry in Louisiana and in the Gulf of Mexico.”
