Energy Finance Discussion Group

Welcome to the Energy Finance Discussion Group (EFDG) Web Page.


Please put 7:30 AM Tuesday, June 11th on your calendar for the next Energy Finance Discussion Group breakfast.

Sean Ebert, Partner at Altira Group will present:


“The Age of Disruption in Oil & Gas”


Our beloved oil & gas industry has always been buffeted by macro and micro forces and we’re no strangers to crises, real or imaginary.  However, the rhetoric around “Disruption” continues to escalate in the media and industry discussions.  What does 2019 and beyond portend for our industry?  We are seeing new threats and old ones are gaining momentum.  The constant march of environmentalism, new substitute technologies, and shifts in the global supply curve continue to challenge the prosperity of our industry.  How should oil & gas executives, manager, and technologists think about this nexus of issues?    In his discussion, Sean Ebert, Partner at Altira Group, a Denver-based oil & gas venture capital firm, provides a framework to assess the  myths and complex challenges facing the energy today and provides a perspective on how the industry is addressing “Disruption” head-on through continued business and cutting-edge digital innovation

Sean Ebert is a Partner at Altira Group, where he sources and invests in emerging oil & gas technology companies out of the firm’s Fund VI. His current and representative former portfolio company directorships include Agile Upstream, Infrastructure Networks, TransZap/Oildex (sold to Accel-KKR), Syntex Management Solutions (sold to IHS) and Austin Geomodeling (sold to SeisWare in 2015). Prior to Altira, Mr. Ebert was a Principal at Booz Allen, where he was focused on advising oil and gas companies and private equity firms on portfolio strategy, new business model development, and capital investment decisions. Before Booz Allen,  Mr. Ebert was the CEO of an emerging energy technology company and he began his career as an engineer in the oilfield.

EFDG will meet at the Denver Athletic Club (DAC) in the Grand Ballroom.  DAC is located at 1325 Glenarm Place.  As the DAC will require a final head count by the Friday morning preceding our Tuesday event anyone interested in attending will need to register by Thursday afternoon (June 6th).  There will be a very significant increase in the cost of registering after Thursday, so please do sign up before this deadline.
