Watford City Area Business Leaders Welcome Oil &
Watford City Area Chamber of
Commerce and the Economic Development Corp. annual meeting featured speaker to discuss
global oil market
Watford City, N.D.—The Watford City Area Chamber of Commerce and the Watford City
Economic Development Corporation are pleased to announce that the annual
meeting is scheduled for March 4th, 2015 at 5:30 pm and will be held at the
Outlaw’s Ballroom in Watford City.
The event will include a social hour starting at 5:30 pm followed by
dinner at 6:30 pm.
This year’s featured speaker
is Dr. Loren C. Scott from Loren C. Scott & Associates, a Louisiana based consulting
firm. Dr. Scott’s present
ation, “The Price of
Oil: What Happened; How Long Will it Last?”
When the price drops sharply and a lot who is the
culprit? Did you notice the
price drop started with the DOC decision to allow oil exports? What role does the Bakken play
have in all this? Why should
we be concerned about the “edges” in all the shale plays? Are oil prices going to stay this
low or is there realistic hope for at least some reversal? A key group (guess who) to watch
is raising their hands and saying, “Let’s have a meeting!” Can this help us think through
how to forecast the second most difficult item in the economy to forecast? “The Bakken is one of the
few economic engines in this country. We hope people will join us to learn more about this
industry and what Dr. Scott has to say about the future of this industry,” said
Darick Franzen, Watford City Area Chamber of Commerce president.
In addition to the featured
speaker presentation, the EDC will debut, “Voices of Watford City” a video
based program with a new website that features stories of Watford City
residents in their own words.
The goal of the project is to allow Watford City residents an
opportunity to provide an informative, visual and dynamic place for those seeking
information about the area.
This video based project will give a sense of what it’s like to live and
work here in Watford City.
Tickets for the event are
$50.00 per person.
