You are invited to a special alumni reception and presentation on "Energy Freedom" by Red Cavaney, former Senior Vice President of Government Affairs, ConocoPhillips on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 from 6:30-9:00 p.m. at the headquarters of ConocoPhillips in Room PE 1011 at 600 North Dairy Ashford in Houston.

Red Cavaney will discuss the opportunity for the U.S. to achieve "energy freedom" by taking advantage of the abundant supplies of shale gas now made available through hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking." He will discuss the controversies involved and how he believes North America could become a net oil exporter after 2025 if shale increases the North American oil supply and reduces imports. 

The event is being organized by the Tepper Houston Alumni Chapter and all Carnegie Mellon alumni are invited to attend and may bring guests.
