Hon. Rob Bishop, U.S. Representative (R-UT) 
Hon. Gus Bilirakis, U.S. Representative (R-FL) 
Hon. Bill Flores, U.S. Representative (R-TX)

This year’s forum attracted a distinguished line-up of the most influential US Congressional, Government and White House leaders and senior oil and gas executives. Our aim is to promote American investments domestically and internationally in the oil & gas industry and to help make America energy independent.

The Washington Oil & Gas Forum took place at a critical moment for the American oil and gas industry, as one week before the Forum, President Trump on his statement announced that the United States ceased all implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement. This Agreement imposed energy restrictions that result in financial and economic burdens to the United States.  The off the record and non-attribution discussions at the Forum, enabled the dissemination of market insight regarding the energy policy of the Trump Administration and its impact on the global energy markets. Over the last two days Congressional, White House, and Government decision makers along with American and international energy leaders discussed on the impact of President Trump's decision on the global energy markets.

We look forward to welcoming you to the next 4th Washington Oil & Gas Forum 2018, on June 6 & 7, 2018 at the Cosmos Club, Washington, DC.
