It has been a great technical luncheon program this year thanks to the efforts of Molly Boyd. We have two more luncheons on our schedule as our season draws to a close.

Please join us for our next luncheon on Monday, May 7th as we host our final Distinguished Lecturer of the year. C. Michael Ming, the Oklahoma Secretary of Energy, will be visiting to present "Let's Not Write off Traditional Energy - How Unconventional Resources and Innovation Can Create a New Energy Future." We look forward to hearing this presentation from a DL and one of Oklahoma's own all wrapped into one.

Two weeks later on Thursday, May 24th, John Redmond of Bluestone Natural Resources and Roy Aneed of Natural Gas Partners, will be here to appeal to the entrepreneur in us all. They will be presenting "How to start your own O&G company." Registration information for both the luncheon and short course can be found on our website at

Be on the lookout for SPE Mid-Continent ballots in your inbox. Now is your chance to volunteer and help shape this wonderful organization.
