Don't Miss The Next Big Deal-Making Wave

Thursday, September 8

There are two sides to every deal – and Oil and Gas Investor's 15th annual A&D Strategies and Opportunities Conference and Workshop explores how to successfully navigate both. As oil prices stabilize, buyers actively search for deals to strengthen their portfolios. And following the spring bank redeterminations, many companies need to sell assets to stay in the game. Experts predict the next big wave of A&D and M&A deals is on the horizon. But the all-important question remains, "What’s the right price?"

Join 500+ BD executives, A&D professionals and industry analysts in Dallas this September for two days of networking, deal making and targeted conference sessions. Secure your seat now before the most anticipated oil and gas business development event of the year sells out!
