Lensic Presents
CAVU's UNEARTHED: Is New Mexico Ready To Be The Next Saudi Arabia?

Tuesday, October 9, 2018 7:00PM
Lensic Performing Arts Center

Lensic Presents<br> CAVU's UNEARTHED: <i>Is New Mexico Ready To Be The Next Saudi Arabia?</i>
Please contact our box office at (505) 988-1234 for availability information.

The evening will include a short film premiere by CAVU, UNEARTHED: Is NM Ready to be the Next Saudi Arabia?, and following, we've assembled a dynamic panel to discuss these issues and the opportunities they present in New Mexico. Panel members include: Michelle Lujan Grisham, U.S. Congresswoman and NM Gubernatorial Candidate; Garrett VeneKlasen, Public Lands, Water & Wildlife Consultant; Alisa Ogden, 6th generation Eddy County Rancher; Jon Goldstein, Environmental Defense Fund; Darryl Weflen, CEO, International Methane Capture Firm; and moderated by award-winning journalist: Laura Paskus.

The oil boom in southeastern New Mexico has grown to rival international plays in Russia and Saudi Arabia. The Permian Basin alone accounts for one-third of all U.S. production and royalties to New Mexico will exceed $1.2 billion this year.

While this is great news for our budget, is New Mexico really prepared to be the next Saudi Arabia? Do we have adequate policies in place that protect public health, improve local infrastructure, and address pollution concerns? What will this mean for our rural communities and public lands?
