The 20th Annual Executive Oil Conference Draws Record Crowd

A record-breaking 1,147 attendees converged in Midland, TX this November for Hart Energy's 20th annual Executive Oil Conference. The Permian Basin-focused event featured world-class presentations from 17 executive-level speakers and showcased products and services from 80 exhibiting companies.

Preceding the event, attendees gathered at the Petroleum Club to honor winners of the 2014 Hearst Awards. During the ceremony, Hart Energy recognized and thanked Dale Brown, founder and president of Petroleum Strategies—the former owner of the Executive Oil Conference—for his outstanding leadership and service in the community and the industry.

Hart Energy regularly pays tribute to America's military heroes during its events, and the 2014 Executive Oil Conference was no exception. Held on Veterans Day, the event featured a number of touching patriotic tributes – including heartfelt remarks from speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and attendees. A portion of the funds raised during the event's annual golf tournament were given to the Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides care for the families of soldiers who have been killed or disabled while in active duty.

Even plummeting oil prices couldn't dampen the tone of the conference. Analysts from Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. and Tudor, Pickering, Holt and Co. offered an encouraging assessment that West Texas' Permian Basin is poised to withstand turbulent oil prices. And during the event's opening keynote, Jeffrey Fisher, COO of American Energy Partners, announced the company will be actively establishing a corporate presence in the Permian Basin by opening a Midland office and hiring local talent.

Be sure to save the date for the 2015 Executive Oil Conference, scheduled November 9-10 at the new Midland County Horseshoe Arena & Pavilion. Opening in January 2015, the new pavilion has the space to support the event's continued growth.

Sabine’s Lenders Might Reduce Credit Line
The fully drawn $1 billion revolving credit line, drawn March 15, could be cut due to low oil prices, Reuters said. Sabine had about $327 million in cash on hand.

Anadarko Leaves Engine Idling, Foot On The Gas Pedal
In January, Anadarko Petroleum Corp. (NYSE: APC) hit a $5.15 billion sinkhole it could not avoid, paying to settle the Tronox contamination case it acquired along with Kerr-McGee in 2006. Despite such a heavy financial hit and cratered oil prices, few companies have the financial wherewithal and discipline to match Anadarko. The company paid the settlement—the largest payment for the clean-up of environmental contamination ever obtained in a lawsuit brought by the Department of Justice—using cash on hand and borrowings. The Woodlands, Texas-based Anadarko is now in a position to do quick deals, sell assets and operate at a slower pace as it works out any kinks in its international operations.
