Eastern Energy Expo’17 Announces Keynote Speaker

A Co-Founder of the Oil Price Information Service to Discuss President Trump’s First 120 Days

 HERSHEY, PA. – March 1, 2017 – Organizers for the 2017 Eastern Energy Expo, taking place May 21-25 in Hershey, Pa., are pleased to announce the keynote speaker will be Tom Kloza, Co-Founder and Global Head of Energy Analysis for the Oil Price Information Service.

The Eastern Energy Expo, co-sponsored by the Oil and Energy Service Professionals, the Atlantic Region Energy Expo, and the Pennsylvania Petroleum Association, is the industry’s signature annual event.

The week of the conference coincides with the first 120 days of the Trump Administration. Kloza is expected to look at the implications of the President’s energy policies for the petroleum industry.

He will address how supply could be affected by allowing more drilling on federal lands and allowing the Keystone and Dakota pipelines to be completed. Kloza will also discuss how refined products will be impacted by potential changes to the Renewable Fuel Standard.

Other important questions to be addressed: Will President Trump endorse Congressional efforts at imposing a border tax, and how might that be applied to imported petroleum products? Will exported products, including natural gas, benefit from this policy and increase prices and production? Will increased economic activity and job creation create more energy demand and higher prices?

There is likely no one better positioned to tackle these issues than Kloza, who has been closely following the most recent industry developments.

Kloza has covered the oil business for more than 40 years. He is a regular guest on all of the business shows and has clocked more than 250 personal appearances on network and major cable TV.

Kloza sits on the Board of Advisers for the Fuels’ Institute and is generally regarded as one of the most objective non-biased experts on North American fuel supply and pricing.

It is not too late for your company to play a big role in the EEE.
