PR Newswire

DENVER, Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Regardless of whether your area of interest in the U.S. energy sector is the shale plays and companies drilling the U.S. basins, offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, oil pipelines, LNG exports, Texas-sourced frac sand, oilfield services or new oilfield technologies, the 23rd annual EnerCom conference will deliver the best of the industry to the Denver Downtown Westin Hotel Denver Aug. 19-22, 2018.

The combined market value of the presenting public companies is more than $220 billion and the publicly-traded energy companies represent a combined enterprise value of more than $275 billion—55% higher than last year.

Several privately held E&Ps and related energy service companies will be at the conference in force as well this year, participating in a variety of panels at the conference. Conference attendees have a rare opportunity to hear from several large private operators who—unlike their publicly traded counterparts—often say nothing in public about their operations.

Among the private oil companies participating in the conference is Anschutz Exploration, a large operator with assets in the Powder River and Washakie Basins of Wyoming, the Piceance and DJ Basins of Colorado and the Unita Basin of Utah. Other private drillers include Permian producer Felix Energy, DJ Basin producer Great Western Oil & Gas, conventional Piceance gas producer Caerus Oil and Gas, and Powder River and Green River Basin operator Samson Resources II.

Who Attends the Conference: More than 2,000 institutional, private equity and hedge fund investors, energy research analysts, retail brokers, trust officers, high net worth investors, investment bankers and energy industry professionals gather in Denver for the conference.

One-on-One Meetings:  EnerCom works in advance with presenting company management teams to arrange one-on-one meetings with the attending institutional investors and research analysts at the conference venue. In 2017, EnerCom managed more than 2,100 one-on-one meeting requests. Buyside investors may request meetings on the conference website or contact EnerCom for more information at 303-296-8834.
