This conference is organized to address the workforce housing challenges and opportunities arising from the sudden growth of the oil & gas "boom towns" throughout North America. In addition to the prime issues of finding and developing short and long-term housing solutions, the conference will engage in housing-related concerns such as attracting and retaining employees as well as planning for sustainable communities.  

"We're very excited about the caliber and range of speakers who have joined us for this year's conference," commented Jeff Presberg, Managing Partner of The Petroleum Connection and event organizer. "It will be a highly informative and thought-provoking event."

"Texas is growing because of the dynamic activity occurring in the energy industries. Quality, cost-efficient oil field housing, particularly in the unincorporated areas of Texas counties, remains a significant and complex issue to be resolved by interaction between energy industry components and local governments," explained Charles Kimbrough, Partner at Bickerstaff Heath Delgado Acosta LLP, which works with numerous counties in the oil patch regarding housing and infrastructure challenges.

Speakers and attendees include: numerous elected officials such as Judge Jim Teal (McMullen County, TX), Judge Jim Huff (Live Oak County, TX), Commissioner Gregg Fulfer (Lea County, New Mexico), Commissioner Doug McLinko (Bradford County, PA ), Commissioner Kevin Burns (Wise County, TX); leaders from E&P and Service Companies such as Schlumberger, FTS International, Talisman Energy, Oasis Petroleum, C&J Energy Services, and Trican Well Service; and leaders from trade associations, academia, and professional organizations such as Omar Garcia (STEER), Rayola Dougher (API), Jack Belcher (Consumer Energy Alliance), Chuck Kimbrough (Bickerstaff Heath Delagado Acosta, LLP), Dr. Azza Kamal (UTSA), and Rod Williams (Oilfield Lodging).

"We have a great combination of industry professionals, municipal officials from the oilfield, housing solution providers, and experts from academia," explained Peter Cook, President of The Petroleum Connection, "There is not another event in the country that focuses on this issue on a national level and that is bringing together industry and municipal officials to honestly discuss housing related challenges and solutions."

Kimbrough summarized, "This conference will provide a worthwhile discussion of those issues and potential solutions through presentations made by leading energy industry and public sector representatives. It's shaping up to be a must-see event."

The conference is being held at Minute Maid Park in Houston, with event accommodations being provided at the Westin Houston Downtown.
