"Over the past four years American energy production has increased by 25% and the U.S. is on track to become a net energy exporter in the next few years. The development of unconventional oil & gas resources and hydrofracking and horizontal drilling technology has created a powerful tailwind for American industry, employment and balance of trade that is likely to be sustained for decades to come," said Crocker Coulson, President of CCG.

"This one day virtual conference will provide investors with an overview of key factors that are driving this transformation, insight as to how to translate these macro trends into actionable investment ideas, and direct exposure to the senior management of companies that are leading The Shale Revolution. We are very pleased with the line-up of presenting companies and I look forward to a very stimulating conversation with Fadel Gheit one of the smartest names on Wall Street currently covering the energy sector," concluded Coulson.
