NAPE East Announces Business Conference Speakers Oil, gas experts discuss state of the industry in daylong precursor to expo NAPE East 2013 Business Wire PITTSBURGH -- April 3, 2013 As part of the inaugural NAPE East, oil and gas industry leaders and experts will convene on Wednesday, April 10, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center for the expo’s Business Conference. IHS (NYSE: IHS), a leading global provider of information and insight to the oil and gas industry, is the sponsor of the Business Conference. NAPE, created as the North American Prospect Expo, is the world’s largest exploration and production (E&P) gathering of its kind and will host the Pittsburgh event. NAPE East, set for April 10-12 at the convention center, brings together in one location holders of oil and natural gas prospects, as well as oil- and gas-producing properties, with organizations providing capital, services and technologies to create a setting where participants can establish strategic alliances for doing business and can buy, sell or trade oil and gas assets. The theme of this year’s Business Conference, “Transforming the Energy Landscape,” focuses on how the growth and evolution of the United States’ unconventional boom has and will continue to have huge impacts on the economy, job creation and the revitalization of energy-dependent industries, while also tackling how these dynamics will coexist with community, environmental, logistics and policy issues. The Business Conference is held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., followed by a networking reception on Wednesday, April 10, the day before the expo floor opens. It provides context for the NAPE East opportunities on showcase Thursday and Friday in the expo. “NAPE has served the oil and gas industry for the past 20 years.
