Since last summer, the price of oil has fallen dramatically, resulting in short- and long-term impacts and changes across the energy sector. Businesses all along the energy supply chain are adjusting their operations and investments for the immediate horizon and, simultaneously, planning for the future. The development of the 2017-2022 Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Plan could open tracts of the Atlantic, Eastern Gulf of Mexico, and Arctic for exploration and leasing. And, despite starts and stops in offshore wind energy, a handful of areas are being leased out with projects progressing along the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. With the prospect of these new areas for U.S. offshore energy production, CHOW will bring developers, financiers, concerned citizens, and federal and state governments to the table to discuss decisions today that are shaping the nation’s energy outlook.
