"2018 Annual Oil and Gas Outlook"

Bob Tippee, Editor

Oil & Gas Journal - Houston, TX

Thursday, February 15

 

The Oil & Gas Industry has been in a downturn for the past several years.  Annually, Oil & Gas Journal compiles geopolitical and industry information impacting the direction of Oil & Gas supply and demand, and projects the effects these factors will have in the coming year on the industry.  Oil & Gas Journal publishes these results in the February Edition of their magazine, and presents their assessment to groups throughout the Greater Houston Area.

Bob Tippee is Editor of Oil & Gas Journal, a weekly trade magazine, and its web site, Oil & Gas Journal Online. Since joining the Journal in 1977, he has written on all aspects of the international petroleum industry, with special interest in economics, energy policy, geophysics, and the Middle East. His work for the magazine has won awards from American Business Media, New York Society of Business Press Editors, Association of Petroleum Writers, International Association for Energy Economics, International Association of Energy Advocates, and Houston Society for Technical Communications. He also has won the Cicero Speechwriting Award and is the 2010 recipient of American Business Medias Crain Award.

Tippee became the Journals chief editor in January 1999. He also was Editor-in-Chief of the 1997 through 2001 editions of the Journals annual affiliate, International Petroleum Encyclopedia. Bob is the director of three PennWell Petroleum Group conferences and has written or co-written several books on the oil and gas industry.  A native of St. Louis, Missouri, he holds a degree in Journalism from the University of Tulsa and served as an officer in the U.S. Air Force for four years.

Advanced ticket sales start this week and end at midnight on Tuesday, February 13.  You can purchase tickets for the event through Brown Paper Tickets.  Additional information is also available through the ASME Website.  Regular tickets are $40, students are $15.  Tickets at the door are $50, CASH OR CHECK ONLY.

3D Manufacturing Lab Update

 

VOLUNTEERS AND TEACHERS needed! We are developing a future curriculum around the 3D Manufacturing Lab.  We still need volunteers and are working with Alief ISD to bring the quadcopter competition to fruition in December. If you interested in 3D manufacturing, we need your help as a mentor for our Quadcopter Competition.  This is a tremendous opportunity to learn Project Management and supervisory skills as we need engineers to work with High School students in designing and building quadcopters.  If you have an interest in this cutting-edge technology, we want you!  Work on the quadcopters will be in the late afternoon and on weekends and we will work with your work schedule.

If you are interested in being a part of this exciting and educational opportunity, please contact Stephen Vasconi via email and RSVP.

Out With the Old, In With the New

 

If you’re doing some house cleaning to usher in the new year, remember that ASME South Texas wants your old magazines! ASME South Texas supports High School STEM education through the distribution of Mechanical Engineering Magazines and other technical periodicals.  This program is one of the most popular in the area, as the magazines help inspire future engineers. Your magazines will make a real difference by helping students reach their potential as future engineers! Please bring those magazines to our meetings throughout the year.
