BTIG to Host Inaugural Energy Summit in New York on May 2, 2019

May 1, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 1, 2019--BTIG announced today that it plans to host the BTIG Energy Summit in New York on Thursday, May 2, 2019. The inaugural event will include panel discussions and presentations featuring a broad range of energy topics which will be important in driving specific company and sector performance.

“The global energy industry is in the midst of tremendous change,” noted Ole Slorer, Managing Director and Head of BTIG Energy and Shipping Investment Banking. “The combination of technology, innovation, regional production changes, impending regulation, price volatility and sector underperformance, has set the stage for continued industry disruption and evolution. By hosting informed company management team members and other energy experts, with important perspectives, we believe that our event will help clients better navigate this shifting and increasingly complex landscape.”

Industry panels will cover the following themes:

  • Improving offshore oil and gas cost structure and the potential for future gains.
  • The emergence of the next generation of super-independent offshore E&P companies with differentiated cash return models.
  • Heightened complexity, uncertainty and the outlook for the global oil and refined product markets as IMO 2020, a historic regulatory change, takes effect.
  • The potential boon for U.S. LNG and infrastructure investment following any U.S.-China trade deal, significant Chinese LNG demand growth from a “Blue Skies in China” policy, and the possible future adoption of LNG as a maritime fuel.

The firm’s energy practice offers strategic insights, in-depth research, multi-asset class trading, and diverse investor and capital markets access. BTIG’s Energy Summit is part of the firm’s Corporate Access offering which produces more than 100 events each year across the consumer, energy, financials, healthcare, real estate, shipping and technology, media and telecommunications sectors. For more information, please contact a BTIG representative or email  info@btig.com. Please note that participants must be pre-registered to attend the summit.
