Entrepreneurship and Experimentation: Solving O&G Regulations in Texas

Date: Thursday, September 15th, 2022
Time: Wine served at 11:00 am  |  Lunch & Lecture starts @ 11:30 am to 1:30 pm
Venue: Petroleum Club of Houston, 1201 Louisiana St, Houston, TX 77002


Come listen to the Libertarian candidate for Texas Railroad Commission discuss why regulation can be burdensome toward progress. Our beloved State of Texas needs room for experimentation and entrepreneurs to figure out how to best deliver answers to problems in the field.


Jaime Andres Diez

Jaime Andrés Díez is the Libertarian nominee for the Texas Railroad Commission. Jaime grew up in Brownsville, TX where he attended Saint Joseph Academy. After graduating he moved to Dallas, TX to attend Southern Methodist University. In January 2019 he graduated with a BS in Mechanical Engineering with a specialization in Engineering Management and Entrepreneurship.
