SORTING THE DECK: PRIVATE CAPITAL OPTIMIZES THE ASSET MIX

As shale basins mature and capital providers become more comfortable with current commodity pricing, asset positions within basins are ripe for consolidation. New players are having a harder time gaining a foothold and established companies face fierce competition as they seek to increase positions. There still appears to be substantial pools of capital available but those providers are chasing fewer and fewer opportunities in high growth areas. How then will private capital deploy in the coming year? Will further consolidation be the preferred way forward? Will capital providers refocus on previously less attractive basins and opportunities? Or will capital providers develop and deploy new capital structures addressing the current climate? This event seeks to help U.S. oil and natural gas operators determine how they can approach different providers to meet their needs. We will examine who has capital to invest, how the rules have changed for companies seeking capital and discuss evolving industry trends that affect capital providers and capital seekers alike.

8:20 AM – 8:30 AM
