There is one major basin where oil output has been recovering even faster in relative terms than any other basin in America. The Denver-Julesburg Basin, with the core activity in Weld County, Colorado, pushed total state production to a new all-time high level of 370-380 MBbld by late summer 2017. Colorado was the second most significant oil-producing state after New Mexico to renew the pre-downturn production record. An impressive growth rate of 30% was achieved in the period from February to August 2017, which alone suggests significant activity expansion in 2017-2018.

1:00 – 1:45 PM         C-Suite Panel: Resilience and the Race to Reinvent (Live from Houston)

The rigid falter and the resilient that survive.  The last few years in the global energy value chain has highlighted this point to perfection.  As prices plummeted, weak companies were exposed, and companies that were built on a solid foundation were able to step to the forefront and turn crisis into opportunity.  Is your company resilient?  What does it take to build a resilient healthy workforce and culture?  Are you trying new things and exploring new ways?  Are you able to quickly reinvent what you’re doing as the markets change? 


  • Senior Vice President of Engineering, Aera Energy, Aimee Blaine

Times are changing, and while there is growth in oil, gas and coal, technology and innovation are opening doors for growth in new areas that were never affordable and available until now.   Technology is driving lucrative growth opportunities, but necessary growth vehicles.  Where are the growth opportunities for your company and your career?
