Mark: Hey, folks let’s learn something new about the oil and gas industry.
Today, we’re in beautiful Austin, Texas which if you don’t know is the capital of Texas. We’re sitting here with Greg Pollock.
How are you doing today, Greg?
Greg: I am fine, Mark. Good to be with you.
Mark: Yeah. And, Greg, you are heavily involved in this conference that’s coming up the first week of December called Clean Gulf. What is Clean Gulf?
Greg: Well, Clean Gulf which we’re celebrating our 27th year – believe it or not is a show that is designed to appeal to many sectors of those operating in the oil and gas industry.
We have exhibit, we have a trade show, we have content program content for the attendees to learn about what the trends are in the oil and gas industry not only with oil spill prevention or response, but even some drilling. You know it’s a multi-faceted program. And then, of course, there are opportunities to network and the fellowship that goes along with being at a conference.
Mark: And I’ve heard your content is exquisite, it’s so good it’s so high quality that if people want to learn more about this sort of thing, this is the place to go.
Greg: Well, we have obviously we’re – this is Texas, the world’s brightest stars are here. Fortunately, we have been able to tap into such a deep talent pool over the years to bring together the folks that program the committee. They actually build the content. So, we’re using the best and brightest to build the best show we possibly can.
Mark: Yeah. And so, OGGN will be there. We will report in as press, we have all the podcasts are going to be there. This is a great show. It’s actually for the first time actually going to be in Houston this year?
Greg: Yeah. Believe it or not we’ve been doing this for – well, we’ll be twenty seven years and this is the first time we’ll be in Houston. We’ve been in Galveston before, we’ve been in San Antonio, but we thought we would bring it back to – to really the heart of where the oil and gas industry is. So, we’re very, very excited about the prospects of being at the George R. Brown Convention Center, December 5th, 6th, and 7th.
Mark: Yeah. You gave the dates. Do you know the website, so if people wanted to learn more about Clean Gulf, where should they go?
Greg: It’s pretty darn simple, CleanGulf.org.
Mark: Yeah. We’ll put a link in the show notes.
And then, Greg, the other thing that I thought was really cool, y’all are actually giving away free passes to just the expo floor like people don’t have to pay if they want to go walk the floor?
Greg: Absolutely. If members of the public or maybe some folks who just don’t have the wherewithal, but they’re still interested in learning what are the best products that are out there to serve the oil and gas industry, you can get an exhibitor — a pass onto the exhibit floor where you can see all of that wonderful technology that our – that our vendors have on display.
Mark: Yeah. And so, we’re going to put that discount code in the show notes too, so you can actually watch the show for free.
All right. So, December 5th through 7th, 2017, George R. Brown in Houston. You’ll be there, right?
Greg: Absolutely, I’ll be there.
Mark: And, we’ll be there and you need to be there. So, if you want to learn more about this fascinating part of the oil and gas industry, go show up. If you go, hit us up on Twitter and if we can meet you in person we’d love to do this.
So, Greg, thank you so much for your time today.
Greg: Mark, thank you. It’s a pleasure being with you.
Mark: Yeah. So, folks I hope this helped. We will see you next time.
