Congressman Murphy To Address Offshore Oil Conference

The Energy Bureau announced that Congressman John M. Murphy, Chairman of the House ad hoc Select Committee on The Outer Continental Shelf, will keynote its national two-day conference on offshore oil. Entitled "Offshore Oil: Challenge And Change," the conference will be held on November 2 and 3 at The Hyatt Regency Hotel in Dallas, Texas.

This conference will examine, discuss and debate the challenges to U.S. offshore oil potential, supply and the environmental movement, as well as the changes being wrought by new legislation. There are central questions of supply, environmental challenge and legislation that even today remain unanswered.

The conference brings together, in addition to Congressman Murphy, executives and officials of Government, industry, the professions and public interest groups to probe, illuminate and debate the pivotal issues of offshore oil and gas. The program is designed for executives of oil and gas companies, as well as those financing and servicing the offshore oil industry. The Energy Bureau, which recently sponsored the first national Outlook For Crude Oil conference, believes this is the first offshore program to direct its attention to these critical questions.
