Oil & gas industry dealmakers head to NAPE in Houston this August

Register now to “get deals done” August 20-22 at the premier marketplace for buying and selling prospects.

FORT WORTH, Texas – July 29, 2014 – NAPE, the premier marketplace for buying and selling oil and gas prospects and producing properties, returns to Houston next month. Nearly a decade after its first summer event, NAPE will take place August 20-22, 2014, at the George R. Brown Convention Center.

NAPE– known as the place to “get deals done” in oil and gas exploration and prospecting – is the world’s largest upstream expo. According to the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau economic impact studies, in the last year alone, NAPE generated more than $21.8 million for the city, which has served as the hometown to the NAPE expos for more than 20 years.

“We’re looking forward to another great event in Houston this year,” said Craig Young, Senior Director of NAPE. “The longstanding tradition of NAPE serves as a seasonal homecoming for landmen and other dealmakers from all over the world. NAPE is an integral piece to the holistic E&P business and is unlike any other event.”

The show kicks off with the NAPE Business Conference on Wednesday, August 20. The conference will feature industry leaders addressing legislative and economic issues as well as trends in technology and exploration. The Business Conference begins at 10 a.m. and runs until 3:30 p.m. followed by prospect presentations and the popular NAPE Icebreaker, one of the best networking receptions to attend each year.

The Business Conference Luncheon Keynote Speaker Dr. Ray Perryman, Founder and President of the Perryman Group, will discuss “Dollars the Oil & Gas Industry Brings to the Economic Table.” Perryman is often referred to as ‘the most quoted man in Texas’ for his expertise in economic and financial analysis.

The business conference schedule and complete list of speakers can be found on the NAPE Expo website: www.napeexpo.com.
