[Dallas, Texas – January 11, 2016] Breitling Energy Corporation (OTCBB:BECC) Chairman and CEO, Chris Faulkner, is keynote speaker at the 7th Gulf Intelligence UAE Energy Forum on Tuesday, January 12 in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Faulkner will address the outlook for US shale in 2016 and beyond to kick-off the one-day conference, which has been thrust into the forefront of world affairs in light of crises in China and the Middle East. Faulkner then joins Platts Global Editorial Director of Oil, Dave Ernsberger, for the first breakout session, discussing these new major international developments of 2016 and how they will affect world oil markets.
“There has been a significant axis shift globally in just a few short days of 2016. I thought we would be discussing the dynamics of $40 dollar oil and now, virtually overnight, we have China’s economy crashing and the Middle East on the edge of conflict. All of this will have ripple effects and oil has been taking a gut punch. This is an amazing time to be in the Middle East and speaking to such a prestigious group of colleagues,” Faulkner said.
The Forum is hosted by The Gulf Intelligence, a leader in knowledge exchange and networking between stakeholders in Energy, Healthcare, Banking and Finance across the Gulf region and is a subsidiary of Platts, a division of McGraw Hill Financial (NYSE:MHFI).
