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.

Tellurian is developing an integrated global gas business beginning with its first project, Driftwood LNG, an ~ 27.6 million tonne per annum (mtpa) liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility on the United States Gulf Coast.

Charif began his career as an investment banker and spent 20 years specializing in financing small capitalization companies in the energy industry. He founded Cheniere Energy in 1996, helping to create the North American LNG export industry in the wake of the shale revolution. Charif served as Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer and President, and ultimately built an LNG complex with an enterprise value of $30 billion, with over 30 mtpa of liquefaction under construction and 9 mtpa permitted at two facilities, Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi.
