Breitling Energy (OTCBB: BECC) announces its CEO and Chairman, Chris
Faulkner, will participate in the opening panel discussion of the 2015
Oil and Gas Awards Rocky Mountain Industry Summit tomorrow, March 10, at
9:30 am. The event will be held at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel
and organizers are expecting a maximum capacity turnout.
In its third year, the Oil and Gas awards presents a full-day symposium
covering some of the most relevant topics in the industry, followed by a
black tie awards gala in the evening.
Tomorrow’s event opens with a keynote address by Corey Goulet, President
of the Keystone Project for TransCanada, addressing “Challenges you face
when you are regulated by the loud minority.” Faulkner will then join
two other panelists to discuss “The unconstitutional regulation of the
oil and gas industry – lawmaking through legislation,” a subject that
rings passionate with Faulkner, often dubbed ‘The Frackmaster’ in the
Faulkner plans to address recent attempts by the federal government to
regulate the oil and gas industry through peripheral areas such as the
Clean Air Act, the Endangered Species Act and EPA regulations.
“Thank goodness the Republicans took Capitol Hill,” Faulkner said. “At
least it pushed some of these unlawful attempts to hurt the industry on
the back burner. We have enough problems dealing with OPEC and Saudi
Arabia right now, we don’t need more unnecessary interference from our
own government,” Faulkner added.
Breitling Energy has been nominated for the 2015 Oil and Gas Awards
Excellence in Social Responsibility for the Gulf Coast Region, which
will be announced in Houston on March 19.
Breitling Energy was the recipient of the 2014 Excellence in Social
Responsibility award for the Southern Region, which encompasses the
Permian Basin, where Breitling is currently in the process of starting a
new well. “That is one of the highest honors that could have been
bestowed on us. It shows we care, and are willing to go public with our
example how the industry can drill responsibly. I’m very proud of that,”
