WHY HOUSTON PRODUCER'S FORUM?

Houston Producers’ Forum is best known for its monthly luncheons. These gatherings are typically held at The Petroleum Club on the third Tuesday of each month. In recent years, we have secured an impressive array of speakers including CEOs of large and small E&P and service companies, industry analysts and leading members of the financial community. We feel that the dramatic growth in our membership is directly attributable to the quality of speakers that we have been able to attract.
