Tulane Energy Week to offer managers overview of world oil and gas markets

Tulane Energy Week 2017
This year’s Tulane Energy Week will take place April 24-28 on Tulane’s campuses in Houston and New Orleans.

This April, Tulane University will host a special one-week program focusing on energy markets, energy policy and energy management. Tulane Energy Week is for managers from around the world who work in, or have an interest in, the development of world energy markets. Participants are invited from Asia, Europe, Central America, South America, Mexico, the U.S. and the Middle East.

The Energy Week program is intended to provide an overview of the current state — economic, technological and political — of world oil and gas markets, the U.S. executive perspective on these markets, trends in alternative sources of energy and the regulation of energy markets. The program also includes “hands on” experience for the participants with visits to a petrochemical plant in Texas and participation in an optional energy trading session at Tulane’s campus in New Orleans.

Faculty presenters will include Tulane faculty experienced in energy market analysis and regulatory practice as well as industry and government executive speakers.

The program begins in Houston at Tulane’s Executive Education Center and concludes in New Orleans at the A. B. Freeman School of Business. The program fee is $4,750 for the 5 day program which includes tuition and seminar materials, hotel accommodation, two meals per day, and transportation for program activities. An optional seminar on energy trading will be offered on Saturday, following the 5-day program. There is a $1,000 fee for the optional trading day. Registration will end March 31st.
