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.

Wood Mackenzie
Research Director U.S. Lower 48 Upstream Research
R. T. Dukes is widely recognized as a global leader in U.S. unconventional oil and gas. Mr. Dukes advises companies at the executive and board level, as well as being a regular speaker at international industry conferences.

He is a media favorite that you'll find quoted in various print and broadcast media outlets.

Mr. Dukes began his career covering the Barnett Shale as horizontal drilling took off and later managed Wood Mackenzie's Rockies research as Bakken Shale development exploded. His roots in East Texas mean the Haynesville Shale is close to home. By design or maybe happenstance, he has been at the forefront of almost every shale story. He authored research highlighting the potential of tight oil years before U.S. production surged.

He has spent most of his career in the weeds of unconventionals and is leaned on for evaluating the impact to local and global markets. He is a recognized thought leader and a contributor to many U.S. and macro-market publications at Wood Mackenzie. At the firm, he has worked in various research and consulting roles and contributed to valuation and due-diligence work that accounts for billions in transactions.

Mr. Dukes is a native Texan and calls Houston home. More importantly, he is a proud husband and father. He spends most evenings and weekends as a youth sports coach. He graduated Cum Laude from Texas A&M University with a bachelor's degree in accounting and a master's degree in finance. He serves on the Former Student Advisory Board for the Professional Program in Accounting.
