FORT WORTH, Texas, March 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This Thursday and Friday, Mar. 23-24, Texas A&M Law will host the 8th installment of its Energy Law Symposium.
With keynote presentations from Christi Craddick, Commissioner, Texas Railroad Commission, Jim Keffer, former Chair of the House Energy Resources Committee and Member of the Natural Resources Committee, Texas House of Representatives, and Bruce Kramer, McGinnis Lochridge, the symposium will explore the future of the global energy regime.
Specifically, the conference will examine the energy industry's transitions, including the downturn in the oil market and related bankruptcies and OPEC's recent announcement to reduce production.
