In July 2014 the topic of the Forum was “Adapting to Plenty: Effects of the Oil and Gas Boom.” Bill White, Chairman of Lazard Houston, and former Houston Mayor and Deputy Secretary of Energy, chaired. Participants considered additional opportunities for production and the challenges of achieving them, international impacts of the new North American production, the changing rationale for U.S. energy security measures, the prospects for and problems of growing U.S. natural gas production and possible exports, and the midstream and downstream impacts of the production boom.
