Program
The University of Texas at Austin
About EMP
In June 2013, The University of Texas at Austin launched the Undergraduate Energy Management
Program within the McCombs School of Business to provide an ocially recognized program
of study for students across all disciplines to pursue in parallel with a traditional degree. The
Energy Management Program is designed to train a skilled and knowledgeable pipeline of talent
to accommodate the needs of the oil and gas exploration and production industry in the United
States and across the world.
In June of 2015, the American Association of Professional Landmen added the Energy
Management Program to the list of 11 accredited land management programs. The association
leads oil and gas landmen in fair business, reinforces responsible use of resources and serves
to provide its members with a platform in which to network, advocate for the industry and
promote business.
The Energy Management Program elevates McCombs’ reputation in energy studies and
leverages The University’s expertise across the Jackson, Cockrell, LBJ, and Law schools. We
actively engage industry in continued partnership to ensure program success and relevance, as
well as to provide internship and job opportunities.

A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT:
“The Texas Energy Management Student Association is about learning the dierent
parts of the energy industry outside of the classroom by interacting with professionals,
sparking intellectual conversation about current events, networking, and experiencing
presentations on concepts within the energy industry. Our goal is to broaden perspectives
and give students additional tools to be knowledgeable and successful in their field
of study. Be sure to check our Hornslink page for upcoming meetings and events!”

Student Spotlight
I am a senior Finance major (Class of 2017), and an Energy Management Program student (Cohort ’15).
Throughout my time at The University of Texas I have been provided with and participated in numerous
academic and extra-curricular opportunities across campus. I am currently an active member of both
Texas Wranglers as well as Texas Cowboys, and have been fortunate to hold various leadership positions
in both organizations. Through these extracurricular activities I have been able to give back to the Austin
community and University that has given so much to me.
After completing the Energy Management Program I have been fortunate to receive scholarships from
BP, ConocoPhillips, and Chevron, which would not have been possible without EMP. This past summer,
I had the opportunity to intern at Concho Resources in Midland, TX as a financial analyst intern in their
Planning group. This was a great opportunity to dive into the hottest play in North America and really
learn the oil business. Taking what I learned from the Energy Management Program and applying it to
my internship was really satisfying. My supervisor and mentor were really impressed by the amount
of oil and gas knowledge the Energy Management Program provided me. In addition to academics,
the Energy Management Program provides its students with great recruiting resources, whether it be
posting internship and full-time position openings, or the ability to talk with Dr. Butler about a career in
the energy sector.
I recommend this program to anybody not only interested in oil and gas, but energy as a whole. I am
excited to take what I have learned through the Energy Management Program and apply it to my career
in energy finance.

A LETTER FROM YOUR ALUMNI REPRESENTATIVE
Growing up in Houston, it was a life-long dream of mine to attend the University of
Texas at Austin. I can remember watching Vince Young out-run the USC defense
for the final touchdown in the 2006 Rose Bowl and thinking to myself, “that’s
where I want to go to school”. Five years later I got a letter in the mail with my
acceptance to UT. I began my time in Austin as an Economics major. One day when
I was on my way to class, one of my classmates informed me that he had just
applied to the newly created Energy Management Program that UT was oering
over the summer. I had always been fascinated by the oil and gas industry so I
decided to look into it, applied, and was ultimately accepted into the program.
The aspect of the program that specifically appealed to me was that I would be able
to receive the EMP certificate in tandem with the Economics Degree I was currently
pursuing. I spent the summer of 2013 taking classes administered by incredibly
knowledgeable professors who provided our class with dynamic learning experiences. Additionally, we
had the opportunity to go on various site visits to court houses and drill sites to see first-hand what
we had been learning in the classroom. Upon the completion of the 18 credit hours required for the
program, I was eager to utilize the knowledge I had acquired the summer before. I had the opportunity
of having two internships between my junior and senior year of college. For the first half of the summer,
I worked for an upstream Oil and Gas Company in Houston as an Intern in their land department;
and spent the second half of the summer working for a mid-sized bank in Dallas as an intern in their
Energy Commercial Lending Department. The EMP Program provided me the tools to be successful
in these internships. Not only from what I learned in the classroom, but also through the networking
and social events which helped me connect and develop relationships with industry professionals.
Upon arriving back in Austin for senior year, I began recruiting for full-time jobs. The sta members of the
EMP program were very helpful in helping me edit my resume, draft cover letters, and apply to various
positions that interested me. I attended the EMP Industry Night where I connected with my current boss.
I now work for Accenture’s Resources group as a Management Consulting Analyst specifically
aligned to the Energy Trading and Risk Management practice. I attribute much of my success to the
opportunities I was given during my time at UT and from my involvement in the EMP Program. One
aspect that I found to be very special about the program is that even though I was at an enormous
school like UT, EMP provided me with a small school feel with the one on one interaction with faculty
and leadership who helped me pursue my interests. Additionally, the networking opportunities that the
program facilitated and helped me connect with professionals that I still keep in touch with to this day.
Since graduating and beginning my career, I have joined the Texas Energy Management Council
as an Associate Member and encourage all EMP alumni to do the same. It is a great way to stay
in touch with what is going on in the program, and give back to the program that provided us with
so many possibilities. I am proud to be an alumn of the inaugural class of Energy Management
Program cohorts, and am excited to see what the future holds for this special program.

David Kalish
VP-Land, Tug Hill Operating
“Tug Hill has utilized UT EMP summer interns for 2015 and 2016 and they were all
we could ask for – professional attitudes, excellent work ethic and well qualified to
accept any and all challenges we presented, along with being courteous, well dressed,
outgoing and conscientious. Being a smaller E&P company, the interns work on “live”
projects, which makes their work essential to our success. Not only is it valuable to
enhance the intern’s working knowledge, but it is also a rewarding experience for
me to be able to give back to UT, who provided me the tools to be successful in the
energy industry. In the future, we plan to continue our partnership with the UT EMP
program to fill our summer intern needs.
“Working with the Energy Management Program as a mentor has been a pleasure and
a privilege. Getting to know the UT EMP students thorough the various mentoring
activities makes me excited and hopeful for the future of the energy industry. Being
a mentor has been an experience I value immensely and I look forward to being a
part of the program for many more years to come.

We welcomed over 50 industry attendee’s.
Larry Svab, Texas Energy Management Council Chairman, welcomed Mr. Houser who began
the day with a history of University Lands. Houser educated attendees on the diverse uses
of the lands as well as the economic development opportunities. He reported on UL acreage
and the revenue which is attributed to their successful operation. A portion of that revenue
is directly deposited into the Permanent University Fund (PUF), with the 2015 contribution
being $807 million. The current market value of the PUF, as of June 30, 2016, is $17.3 B. Under
Mark’s leadership the organization continues to improve on their organizational structure and
diversity of land usage. Over the next 20 years University Lands predominant revenue source
will remain Oil and Gas, however,Solar and Water resources are quickly gaining significance as
contributors.

Keith Maxwell, CEO
NuDevco Partners and National Gas & Electric
I was born in Houston, TX in 1964 and raised in the Briargrove area, where I
graduated from R.E. Lee High School in 1983. Throughout my early years in
Houston, I experienced a highly dynamic era of Houston’s development, in which
Houston became the culturally diverse, energy capital that it is today. What I didn’t
realize at the time was that I was living through both economic and energy-related
cycles that would later become the first building blocks of my career.
After high school, I was set in my heart early-on that I wanted to stay in Texas for
college. In 1983, I headed to The University of Texas at Austin, earning a degree in
Economics in 1987. Post-graduation, I moved back to Houston to find a job and
to be closer to my family. The late 80’s were an extremely chaotic time in the
energy industry as a whole, with Houston itself experiencing many high and lows.
I was fortunate enough to find a job and started my career working for a natural gas consulting firm,
specializing in gas deregulation.
In 1977, the Department of Energy Organization Act transferred most of the regulatory functions over
the electric power and natural gas industries, which had been subject to control by the Federal Power
Commission since 1938, to the FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission). This was the beginning
of the movement toward deregulation of the natural gas industry and allowed customers the choice in
purchasing their natural gas, known as “open access. President Ronald Reagan signed a law deregulating
natural gas in the mid-80’s, which allowed gas producers and marketers to use the free market for
unregulated pricing and marketing of gas via interstate pipelines nationwide.
The firm I started working with out of school was at the forefront of this movement for deregulation. At
the age of 25, I saw the opportunity to leverage what I had learned and took my first huge leap of faith.
In 1989, I co-founded a gas marketing and gas gathering company, Polaris Pipeline Company. Through
the development of new relationships, we were able to grow the company in a highly fragmented and
still newly developing energy market. The accelerated growth of the company was due, in large part, to
the open movement of gas to new high yielding markets in the Midwestern and Northwestern industrial
base. We later built a network of gathering gas lines and treating plants in north Louisiana. The key to our
success was building strong partnerships at both ends of the gas pipeline network, of which many we are
still partnered with today. Over the next 4 years, we consistently achieved growth year-over-year, and in
1993, sold the company to a much larger utility marketer.
I quickly realized that relationship development, whether with suppliers, customers or counterparties,
is the key foundation of starting and growing successful companies. Shortly after the sale of Polaris, I
helped co-found another gas and oil marketing company called Wickford Energy. It was here where I
learned about the oil marketing side of the business, whose markets operate vastly dierent than the gas
side. Oil marketing relied partly on movement in pipe, but had several other options that gas didn’t have
at the time, including barges, rail, and trucks. We built an oil storage and gathering terminal on the Sabine
River in East Texas as another way to enhance our marketing abilities and revenues. In 1998, Wickford
was bought by Black Hills, a power and gas utility company in the Midwest.
With gas deregulation continuing to progress, and the deregulation of electric power in 1992 by President
George H.W. Bush, in 1999, I formed Spark Energy, an unregulated gas and power company serving small
businesses and residential customers nationwide. We started with only a couple of employees and a few
retail gas customers in the Midwest, using word-of-mouth as our only form of marketing in the beginning.
We took Spark public in the summer of 2014, which was a huge catalyst in our ability to grow. Again,
focusing on customers and strong partners, Spark’s footprint has now grown to ~750,000 customers
spread across 18 states and 90 dierent utilities.
In 2006, we started a gathering and processing and fuel logistics company call Marlin Midstream. This
included the construction of two plants in East Texas that took rich natural gas, striped out the heavier
liquids, and sent it through pipes to various locations and through several interconnections with larger
trunkline pipes. Marlin went public in 2013, and we subsequently sold it to a much larger private equity
backed midstream company. Since then, we have continued to develop our crude and fuels business
through trucking and other logistics companies.
Now, over 30 years since beginning my career in energy, I look back and it becomes a bit overwhelming
to think of all the highs and lows that myself and all my colleagues had experienced. Through it, there
are a couple of points that I consider key factors to success. First, never stop learning and never create
imaginary boundaries for yourself. I still come to work excited every day, wanting and expecting to learn
something new. Second, surround yourself with the most intelligent, positive, driven, and energetic people
that you can. It would be naïve of me, or any other business owner, to think that building companies
would be possible without the help of a well put together team’s eorts all striving for similar goals.
Finally, don’t be too hard on yourself when you make mistakes. When you make mistakes, and believe
me, I have made more than my fair share, analyze, learn, mitigate, and move on. Life is too short to spend
time and energy dwelling on the past instead of focusing on the future.
I know that all of EMP’s board, committee, advisory members and, of course, faculty are working hard to
make this a highly distinguished and sought-after program. I would like to thank the Energy Management
Program for allowing me to share my story.
