IPAA/HAPL Gulf of Mexico Annual Industry Briefing

(HAPL Landmen are welcome and encouraged to register for IPAA Offshore Program  that proceeds the HAPL Offshore Social)

America’s offshore resources in the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) are vital to this country’s energy security and economic vitality. As a result, HAPL and IPAA are hosting an in-depth program to discuss the myriad of issues pertaining to oil and gas operations in the offshore, particularly focusing on resources in the OCS. 

The program will feature views from both major and independent operators, a government agency and a current legislative update provided by IPAA.

The event will take place on November 13 at The Westin Galleria Houston Hotel, beginning at 1:30 p.m. This program is in conjunction with HAPL’s Annual Offshore Social to be held immediately following also in the Westin Galleria. Wedding these two events will enhance the broad based participation from the Offshore Industry – bringing together engineers, geologists, lawyers, landmen and lawmakers under one roof. 

The Offshore Social will provide a great opportunity for networking at one of Houston premiere venues – The Westin Galleria Houston Hotel. The hotel intends to block off a number of rooms at a special rate for out-of-town participants, and will also provide valet parking. This will be a very worthwhile and enjoyable experience for those working in the Offshore Industry.

Mr. Hrobsky's background information below comes from a recent Interior press release.


The U.S. Department of the Interior’s Minerals Management Service (MMS) today (August 20, 2007) announced the appointment of Jon Hrobsky as a new deputy director.

In this capacity, Hrobsky will assist MMS Director Randall Luthi in the administration of programs that ensure the effective management of mineral resources located on the nation’s Outer Continental Shelf — including the environmentally safe exploration, development, and production of oil and natural gas — and alternative energy uses.


“I am excited about the opportunity to continue my work with MMS and their regulatory role in ensuring the responsible development of energy on the Outer Continental Shelf,” said Hrobsky. “I am looking forward to the chance to make a difference.”


Hrobsky comes to MMS from the Secretary of the Interior’s Office of Congressional and Legislative Affairs where he served as the deputy director. Prior to coming to the Department he worked as legislative director and senior legislative assistant with two Congressmen from Colorado. He will join deputy director Walter Cruickshank at MMS, with each overseeing specific programs.


His work with the Secretary’s office has included helping MMS in the development of rules and regulations for the Energy Policy Act of 2005, the Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act of 2006 and the 5 Year Leasing Program for 2007-2012.


Hrobsky has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado.
