The conference is a big deal for the energy sector.

So what did Pompeo talk about to this high-level energy sector crowd?
He used the opportunity to attack, Syria, Iran, Venezuela and Russia. He further pretty much called on the energy sector to enter the neocon battle to change the world.
It isn't enough for the energy sector to be a decent trading partner. According to Pompeo, "We're not just exporting American energy, we're exporting our commercial value system to our friends and to our partners. The more we can spread the United States model of free enterprise, of the rule of law, of diversity and stability, of transparency and transactions, the more successful the United States will be and the more successful and secure the American people will be."
