Murphy back for 2nd Tri-State Oil & Gas Convention



In addition to Murphy's appearances, the Tri-State Oil and Gas Convention (TSOGC) will also feature breakout sessions on a range of topics affecting these energy industries.

There will also be a number of vendor booths boasting a variety of oilfield equipment and supplies.  Long said that there are only a few more outside vendor spaces available.

Another highlight of the convention will be the 2013 Bobby Joe Cudd Legacy Awards Reception and Dinner from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Aug. 8.

Former United States Army Ranger and country music singer Keni Thomas is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the awards dinner.

Thomas served in 1993 in the Battle of Mogadishu, which was ultimately memorialized in the book and movie "Black Hawk Down", Long said.

He said Thomas will speak from his experience in that battle and tell the story of the individuals with whom he shared that combat experience.

"That is going to be an amazing speaker," Long said.

For those who wish to attend the awards dinner and hear Thomas speak, tickets will be available at the door, Long said.  This ticket is separate from the registration fee required to attend the convention.
