The second annual Texas A&M AgriLife Western Anadarko Energy Conference will be held Oct. 8 in the Jones Pavilion, 1101 N. 6th St., Canadian.
“This event is particularly important due to the difficult markets and declining value of the oil and natural gas resources,” said Andy Holloway, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agriculture and natural resources agent for Hemphill County.
Registration will begin at 8 a.m., with the program to follow from 8:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. It will include lunch and trade show.
Registration is $100 per person, and credit and debit cards are accepted. Attendees should register either on the website or call the AgriLife Extension office in Hemphill County at 806-323-9114. The website also has a complete listing of topics, speakers and sponsors.
“This event will provide educational information to mineral rights holders and landowners, oil and natural gas production companies, service companies and anyone interested in the energy markets, production, technologies and future of the energy industry in the Texas Panhandle and surrounding area,” Holloway said.
Speakers include State Reps. Chris Paddie and Ken King. Paddie is chairman of the Texas House of Representatives Energy Committee, and King is the state representative for District 88.
Other speakers will address the long-term view of the energy supply and demand, estate and asset succession planning, effective hydraulic fracturing and financial trends in the energy industry.
Holloway said he began the conference last year in Hemphill County because the county has produced trillions of cubic feet of natural gas and millions of barrels of condensate and oil over the last 50 years from the Western Anadarko Basin.
Other Texas counties in the basin include Wheeler, Roberts, Lipscomb and Ochiltree. Mineral owners from Oklahoma’s adjoining counties of Roger Mills and Ellis have also been invited.
