A luncheon at the Petroleum Club by the young professionals of LAGCOE featured Mr. Art Mixon, PetroQuest Energy Executive Vice President as a guest speaker.  He says the oil and gas industry is a steeple of growth for the entire state of Louisiana.

"There's a lot of jobs that are related to that in our community.  Not only for the AP Sector, which is engineers, geologists, landmen, but service companies and salesmen and support services--boats, helicopters, and all the caterers and all the different companies that accommodate those operations.  It's very positive for the community of Lafayette," says Art Mixon, PetroQuest Energy Executive Vice President-Operations and Production.

The luncheon today provided an opportunity for young oil and gas professionals to network with peers and learn from an experienced industry professional.
