Held each February, the NAPE Summit is a networking event that brings together individuals "necessary to forge, facilitate, and close deals." In the upstream oil and gas business, it is the largest event of its kind in the world. Each year a team of energy students attends the summit with the energy coordinator, Chris Coombs.
