Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP will host the 4th Annual Energy of Energy on Wednesday, April 28, 5-7:30 p.m. at the Houstonian Hotel, 111 North Post Oak Lane. At the event, Maynard Holt, co-president of the energy investment and merchant bank Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co., will discuss "Deal Making in the Oil Patch."
"Today, winning the 'oil race' is all about deal-making," said Doug Eyberg, head of Gardere's Energy Industry practice group. "The energy industry is buzzing, with $130 billion in deals so far this year. But that's mostly been about trying to secure resources. With 87 percent of the world's oil reserves controlled by foreign governments or national champions, large private energy companies are finding it harder to replace lost production. This places the burden firmly on deal-making."
Mr. Holt will discuss the many broad trends driving energy deals and the recent flurry of M&A activity. Interview opportunities will be available that evening with Mr. Holt and Mr. Eyberg. Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be served.
