What To Expect At 2019 IPAA Private Capital Conference
There is plenty of private capital to go around, but providers have become much more strategic and disciplined in how they deploy their investments in the oil and gas sector. This is especially true since the oil price trough that began in late 2014.
In fact, some are eyeing a longer-term strategy as a way to cash in on the U.S. onshore shale boom, shifting from quick flips to long-term commitments, while some private equity companies are increasingly filling the void in offshore oil and gas production in the Gulf of Mexico, providing much-needed capital to jumpstart drilling there. Additionally, private equity investments globally in oil and gas also remains strong.
In an industry where cost-cutting and debt servicing remain the main priorities, the need for operational and growth capital is as large as ever and private capital providers are well positioned to fill the gap.
Join David Baggett, Founder and Managing Partner of Opportune LLP, and leaders across the energy industry at the Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA) Private Capital Conference on January 24, 2019 in Houston where answers to pressing questions relevant to private capital trends in the oil and gas industry will be addressed, such as:
- How 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?
- Will capital providers develop and deploy new capital structures addressing the current climate?
- And much more!
In addition, Josh Sherman, Partner in charge of Opportune's Complex Financial Reporting group, will moderate a timely panel, titled "Consolidations, Acquisitions & Divestitures", in which panelists will discuss how Permian premiums are holding up and highlight potential buyers and sellers, among other topics.
