The Oilservice Conference Sets San Francisco Agenda

  DENVER, Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Oilservice Conference, hosted by
EnerCom, Inc., today announced this year's stellar preliminary line-up of
presenting companies.  This inaugural event, a one-day forum to be hosted at
San Francisco's Mandarin Oriental Hotel on February 20, 2003, showcases some
of the world's leading oilservice providers. 
The companies span the service spectrum, including drillers, equipment
manufacturers, oilfield services, compression, reservoir description and
mission critical energy technology.  This event is open at no charge to
institutional investors, retail brokers, investment bankers, research
analysts, energy industry professionals and individual investors.  For more
information about the conference, call 303-296-8834, or to register online, go

Gregory B. Barnett, President of EnerCom, Inc. said: "Upstream oil & gas
fundamentals for 2003 are too good for investors to ignore. Natural gas prices
continue upward through six consecutive quarters of declining deliverability.
Analysts are forecasting a 2% growth in gas demand for 2003, with estimated
gas prices averaging $4 MMbtu - $6 MMbtu during 2003 and into 2004. This
should lead to increased activity for service companies and robust
opportunities for investors.  Current oilservice costs are relatively low. Day
rates for both onshore and offshore rigs are 30% lower than they were a year
ago. Increased hydrocarbon demand is expected to ramp up North American
drilling, oilservice and construction activity.  Greater activity should
result in greater cash flows and profitability for many companies in this
sector."
