Energy Exposition Lights Up the Industry in the Rockies

Thousands flocked to the 2019 Energy Exposition this year held in Gillette, Wyoming. The Expo was by all accounts, a high energy successful event attended by passionate professionals wanting to have more purpose in the energy industry.

This year’s speakers and presenters offered a diverse range of topics and ideas. There were participants, speakers and attendees from the oil, natural gas, wind and solar market, and advocacy and government officials.

The event kicked off with the high-energy Jason Spiess, host of The Crude Life, addressing the “Cult of Environmentalism.” The following day Expo participants had an opportunity to see U.S. Congresswoman Liz Chaney, U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, U.S. Senator John Barrasso; Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon; Dan Eberhart, Canary;  Dan Haley, Colorado Oil & Gas Association; Peter Wold, Wold Energy; Ron Auflick, Wold Energy; Tom Kropatsch, Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission; John Robitaille, Wyoming Petroleum Association; Paul Ulrich, Johah Energy; Weld County (CO) Senate District 13, James Cook; Conner G. Nicklas, University of Wyoming College of Law; Michael Von Flatern, Wyoming State Senate, District 24; Harriet Hageman, Hageman Law and former Chairman
of the Wyoming House Republican Caucus, Nathan Winters.

The Energy Exposition offered live music after speakers and dinner, bringing in the newly crowned Rocky Mountain CMA Entertainer of the Year, Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band.

“This year’s Expo was another fantastic event,” Austin Jennings, co-organizer of the event said. “It is always exciting to witness the industry’s commitment to a cleaner energy future, hearing strategies employed to position companies for success, finding out new technological advances and continuing the practices that keep the industry safer than ever.”
