Topic: The Texas Oil & Gas Economy: Smooth Sailing or Rough Seas Ahead?


Speaker: Karr Ingham, Petroleum Economist, InghamEcon,LLC


Petroleum Economist Karr Ingham will discuss the current state of the Texas oil and gas exploration & production economy, as well as Texas, US and global market conditions that are driving activity levels in the state. Higher crude oil and natural gas prices have brought a renewed sense of optimism after two years of deep contraction in the statewide oil & gas economy. Will 2017 truly be a year of recovery and growth in the Texas oil & gas sector, or are there storm clouds on the horizon that may keep downward pressure on prices and E&P activity statewide?




KARR INGHAM is an Amarillo, Texas economist, and is the owner and President of InghamEcon, LLC, an economic analysis and research firm specializing in regional/metro area economics, and oil & gas/energy economics. 

Mr. Ingham is a native of the Texas Panhandle, and is a magna cum laude BBA Economics graduate of West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas (and taught there for a short time as well).

Ingham is a member of the National Association for Business Economics, and serves on various forecasting and survey panels for that organization.  He is a member of the US Association for Energy Economics, holding his affiliation with the Houston chapter.  He serves as the Consulting Petroleum Economist for the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers, the nation’s largest state oil & gas trade association with over 3,500 members.  He also serves on the Supply and Demand Committee of the Independent Petroleum Association of America.  He is the creator of the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers Texas Petro Index, a tool for tracking growth rates and industry cycles in the Texas oil and gas exploration & production sector.  He is also the current President of the Amarillo Habitat for Humanity board.
