The AIPN International Conference features discussions on emerging trends and critical issues impacting energy deals worldwide. The conference also offers valuable networking opportunities to attendees, allowing them to develop new business opportunities and gain insight from their industry colleagues.

This year’s conference theme is “Deal-Making in the New Energy World Order.” A New Energy World Order has emerged as a result of historic oil price swings; shifts in rent and power and changing relationships between IOCs, NOCs, governments and service companies; and a global financial crisis of proportions never previously seen. This conference will address the questions of “what lies ahead” for our industry and how the New Energy World Order will change the type of deals the industry makes, the resource holders they pursue, the alliances that are developed, and the protections it will require to be successful in the ever changing energy world.
