DENVER, Jan. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- EnerCom, Inc. announced today The Oil & Services Conference™ IX (TOSC 9) will be held at The Omni Hotel in San Francisco, on February 22-24, 2011. Interested participants can register to attend, find the list of presenting companies and view live webcasts at http://www.theoilandservicesconference.com. As many issues are debated about how to develop and deliver new forms of energy that are cash efficient and clean, one issue remains evergreen – the world's constant and insatiable consumption of crude oil and natural gas. With the U.S. economy producing 1.8% more output during 3Q'10 than the pre-recession period of 3Q'08, and with forecasts of growth for world economies in 2011, it is apparent that all global regions – offshore and onshore – will be explored and developed to deliver the necessary energy to meet industrial expansion. Attendees at this year's Conference will hear a select group of companies present their 2011 development and exploration plans. Growth will be the theme for this year's conference. Attendees will also hear from a group of energy analysts who will deliver presentations on their future outlook for trends and the direction for commodity prices. Founded in 2003 by EnerCom, this annual Conference brings together executives and investment professionals in the global oil and gas industry. Each company presenter will deliver a 25-minute presentation, followed by company break-out sessions. Institutional investors and research analysts can schedule one-on-one meetings with presenting companies by contacting EnerCom prior to the Conference. An in-house TOSC Index was created by EnerCom to track the stock performance of the 2010 presenting companies. For the period of January 4 – December 31, 2010, the 2010 TOSC group of presenting companies generated a return of 23%, outperforming the S&P 500 and S&P Energy indices by 10% and 4%, respectively.
