He will join the world’s most influential decision-makers for two days of high-level discussion and debate on the crucial issues facing the international energy sector.

 “I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to represent the GEM program at the conference, and I’m looking forward most to the discussions of the opening of the Mexican Oil & Gas industry to international companies,” Longwell said. “I hope to catch up on all the changes the European and North & South American Oil & Gas Industries have gone through since I have lived in Australia for the last three-and-a-half years.

Longwell received the scholarship that was available to alumni upon nomination from the GEM Program. The Oil & Money Conference will take place from October 29-30 at The InterContinental, Park Lane, London.

“My unique and varied career gives me a strong understanding of the oil & gas industry and the international energy trading market which will allow me to be an active participant in the 2014 Oil & Money Conference,” Longwell said.

The scholarship includes economy airline travel, hotel accommodations for a two-night stay, admission to the Oil & Money Conference and the Petroleum Executive of the Year Dinner.

Longwell is a Senior Drilling Engineer at Santos Limited in their Offshore Australia Team and was a member of GEM’s Cohort IV. He has held many engineering roles covering most of the lifecycle of Oil & Gas exploration, production, and abandonment.

 He has worked in the oil and gas industry for 11 years across the United States, Central China, Offshore Vietnam, Tajikistan, and Onshore & Offshore Australia.

The Oil & Money Conference, organized jointly by the International New York Times and Energy Intelligence, has a proud 35-year heritage of bringing together leaders in the worlds of energy and finance to network with other influential peers, exchange expert insights, and develop strategies & solutions for the most pressing energy issues.
