Fox analyst William Kristol, oil and gas executive leaders and
State regulators all scheduled to speak at
TIPRO’s 66th Annual Convention in Dallas

AUSTIN, TX -- Oil and gas production is at a level not seen in nearly 25 years, with record levels of drilling seen all over Texas. Analysts predict oil and gas activity to continue to rise. This is providing much-needed support to the economy, creating tens of thousands of jobs and offering large contributions to local, state and federal coffers.

However, in the coming years, a broad range of issues will impact Texas oil and gas producers and royalty owners -- from endangered species to comprehensive tax reform.

The development of shale plays, along with increasing threats of unnecessary federal regulation, are sure to be key topics of discussion on March 27-28, as members of the Texas Independent Producers and Royalty Owners Association (TIPRO) meet at the Sheraton Downtown Hotel in Dallas, Texas, for TIPRO’s 66th Annual Convention.

CEOs of top oil and gas companies are slated to present during the Convention, including Clarence Cazalot of Marathon Oil, Mark Ellis of LINN Energy, Gary Evans of Magnum Hunter, and Toby Darden of Quicksilver. These industry leaders will each share insight on how their companies are adapting to an ever-changing business and regulatory environment.

Additionally, William Kristol, national political analyst and commentator for FOX News Channel, will provide this year’s keynote address. Kristol will share a national political overview and analysis of the primary elections. A change in elected leaders could have a radical effect on energy policy in the years to come, which is why it is as important as ever oil and gas professionals stay informed.

“The energy business is thriving and investments in the industry are up,” said Justin Furnace, president of TIPRO. “However, despite recent growth in production of oil, independent producers face a number of challenges ahead. Speakers at this year’s TIPRO Convention will provide updates on the latest state and federal issues along with insight from corporate leaders on what the coming year may bring for our business. With an agenda packed full of informative sessions, this year’s Convention is sure to be relevant, revealing and timely.”
