The LAGCOE organization works to connect energy through commerce and education. We promote commerce by providing companies with business development opportunities such as the LAGCOE exposition now in its 61st year. We foster education for and about the energy industry by showcasing new technologies and supporting STEM education through scholarships, endowments and student outreach. We connect people of all ages to career development opportunities through networking, mentoring, educational presentations, workforce development programs and career fairs.

LAGCOE has always focused on showcasing new technologies in the oil and gas industry. Though an off year for the full exposition, LAGCOE is planning the LAGCOE Education and Innovation Summit: two packed days of educational and entrepreneurial events October 26-27, 2016 in the Cajundome Convention Center. Part of the summit will include the second annual Energy Innovators Pitch Challenge. The event will once again connect the best emerging energy innovators in the industry with investors ready to move their business ideas forward.
When you’re talking 184 shale plays, 187 natural gas pipelines and 68 LNG terminals – you’re talking jobs.
The U.S. needs oil industry workers. And universities, technical colleges, trade schools, apprenticeship programs – even high school shale academies – are gearing up to keep pace with the industry’s demands.
