DALLAS, April 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Chris Faulkner, CEO and Chairman of Breitling Energy (OTCBB: BECC) is speaking at a prominent luncheon panel in Houston today discussing the Yemen conflict, OPEC, and the global impact of fluctuating oil production quotas.
The event is hosted by the World Affairs Council of Houston, an organization founded to promote American's understanding of international affairs. Today's event was rescheduled from February due to inclement weather.
Faulkner is expected to correlate OPEC's 2011 decision to fix production at 30.37 million barrels per day with their current refusal to reduce that number in light of decreasing world supplies and low prices. Houston's economy has been feeling the impact of below $50 oil.
"When OPEC's Secretary General says he thinks oil has hit a bottom, then in the next sentence says what is happening could create a price boomerang to upwards of $200 per barrel oil, that is certainly worth investigating in a discussion on this level," Faulkner said.
The panel will be moderated by James B. Adams, a retired ExxonMobil executive who spent 20 years working abroad, with 14 years in the Middle East. Most recently, Adams was ExxonMobil's Lead Country Manager in Iraq, and previously President of ExxonMobil Iraq Limited.
Also participating is Pradeep Anand, President of Seeta Resources. With over 30 years in the oil and gas industry, Anand is a highly sought strategist especially pertaining to market forces and developing competitive strategies to adjust to changing sector dimensions.
The event begins at 11:30 at the downtown Houston Hyatt hotel.
