The Oil & Gas in the 21st Century Conference was a two-day interdisciplinary conference, April 7 and 8, 2016, that brought leading energy experts to Tulsa to explore the question of whether production and consumption of oil and gas will peak during the 21st century because of diminishing oil and gas resources or competition from energy efficiency and other energy sources. Conference themes included market reserve supply and demand challenges and inter-technology competition challenges.
