The AAPL held its 63rd annual meeting this June in spectacular Seattle. The Emerald City welcomed landmen from around the country to enjoy its beautiful scenery, great food, and informational speakers. The educational lineup included panel discussions, sessions and presentations from industry experts of many different disciplines, and even featured Bill Thomas, CEO of EOG Resources, with his take on their success and today’s energy industry.
The event included networking throughout downtown Seattle, with Hot Play Happy Hour Socials for the Bakken, Eagle Ford, Scoop/Stack, Haynesville, Marcellus and Permian at many of the downtown restaurants and bars. A great Friday night party, aptly named The LandMan Bash, was held at the Museum of Pop Culture near the Space Needle. There were ample opportunities to meet with business associates, friends, and AAPL members alike.
The setting in Seattle was perfect as the weather cleared and was sunny every day with 70-80 degree days and cooler nights, plus no humidity making for a very nice treat (especially for us south Louisiana folks). There was a Golf outing on Saturday held at Gold Mountain Golf Club which had great scenery as well.
With this annual meeting there were many opportunities to get re-certification credits while learning about new plays and companies doing business in every producing basin in the US. iLandMan was fortunate to have three of our executives participating in the sessions and social events. These outings are a great occasion to spend time with clients, getting to know them on a personal level while building upon our business relationships. We talk features and functions, strategy for upcoming projects, and generally discuss how to leverage our technology to be successful.
Thanks to the AAPL Staff and Annual Meeting Committee for hosting a fantastic meeting and event!
Richard Hines, CPL – Vice President – iLandMan
