Foley was a Silver Power Sponsor of the WEN 2022 Conference, which was held in person in Fort Worth from April 3-5, 2022. A number of Foley team members attended the conference along with over 500 attendees from various areas of the energy industry, including development, logistics, operations and management, consulting, financing and legal representatives. The attendees represented a broad range of the energy sector, ranging from more traditional oil and gas companies to renewable energy developers and everything in between.
