LOGA, LMOGA launch the Southern Energy Conference


A new oil and gas conference hosted jointly by the Louisiana Oil and Gas Association and the Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association is coming to Lafayette this fall, with a focus on politics, the industry and education.

The Southern Energy Conference will take place September 17-18 in Lafayette at the DoubleTree by Hilton, providing attendees with first-hand access to Louisiana’s gubernatorial candidates in a Gubernatorial Forum, critical updates on the oil and gas industry and CLE credits for professionals in multiple fields.

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

“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,” says Gifford Briggs, president of the 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.”

Tyler Gray, President and General Counsel of LMOGA, says 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. The partnership between LMOGA and LOGA to host the Southern Energy Conference, he says, “highlights the importance of this can’t-miss industry event.”
