May 2014 - Tom Bartos, CFO of ABARTA Energy, has been serving on the Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA) Board of Governors for seven years and as a member was invited to ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) as a kick off at their Oil & Gas Investments Symposium (OGIS) Monday, April 7th in New York. This is not the first time Tom has been given this honor, but it was every bit as thrilling the second time around.
The IPAA is the leading, national upstream trade association representing oil and natural gas producers that drill 95% of the nation's oil and natural gas wells. These companies account for 54% of America's oil production and 85% of its natural gas production. The IPAA OGIS New York is the premier outlet for publicly traded independent exploration and production and service and supply companies to present their company profiles to the investment community.
