TU's College of Law hosts a two-day interdisciplinary conference, exploring the question of whether production and consumption of oil and gas will peak during the 21st century because of diminishing resources or competition from energy efficiency and other energy sources.
The conference is free and open to the public.
All events are hosted at Gilcrease Museum, 1400 North Gilcrease Museum Road, Tulsa, Oklahoma 74127.
