Spring Conference

The 3rd Annual Spring Energy Summit

Friday, March 31, 2023 | AT&T Hotel & Conference Center | Sponsored by Tailwater Capital

Meeting Global Energy Demand


In March 2023, we hosted our third annual Spring Energy Summit to discuss the future of energy infrastructure.


As the energy mix evolves and demand increases in the developing world, we explored the need for effective policies to support the significant investment in traditional and novel infrastructure required to ensure affordable, reliable, and clean energy sources.


    Featuring Gene Shepherd, CEO of VTX Energy Partners, and Bud Brigham, Executive Chairman of Brigham Exploration. During our luncheon keynote, Gene Shepherd interviewed energy entrepreneur Bud Brigham on how he continues to create successful businesses through an entrepreneurial atmosphere.
