Individuals from across the service and supply sector gathered last week for a comprehensive overview of oil and gas production, hosted by the PESA Emerging Leaders Committee and sponsored by Baker Hughes, a GE company.
PESA Board Member Chuck Chauviere, President of Drilling Systems, Baker Hughes, a GE company, kicked off the two-day seminar conveying the importance of personal development and continual learning. Jim Wicklund, Managing Director for Equity Research, Credit Suisse, then provided a market outlook to set the stage for the seminar.
Since 2014, the U.S. has had a major impact on the global supply and demand, and E&P companies can increase production faster than any other company in the world. Oil companies have returned to the U.S. after decades, and technology has allowed that to happen.
“The leaps that we have made are staggering,” Wicklund said.
