British American Business Speaker Series: Energy Forecast & Annual General Meeting
The British-American Business Council Houston invites members and friends to join us for the first in our 2016 British American Business Speaker Series. This event will also serve as our Annual General Meeting.
Keynote speaker, Harold “Skip” York, Vice President of Integrated Energy for Wood Mackenzie and frequent guest on news networks, such as, Bloomberg and CNBC, will talk about the prospects for oil price recovery.
Deep capital spending cuts in 2015 and continuing in 2016 are beginning to rebalance the global oil market and setting the stage for prices to eventually recover. This presentation from Wood Mackenzie, a global leader in commercial intelligence for the energy industry, will cover how the rebalancing has already started, what needs to happen for it to continue, and what issues risk derailing the process.
Remember that to vote on the slate of directors to be presented at the AGM you must be a member in good standing with dues paid for the 2016 membership year.
