Houston PUG

The Houston PUG regional chapter was formed in 2013 and has been very active since.  Our plans are to get together quarterly with an agenda mixing both technical and social content.  The annual New Year Social at the Ginger Man Pub is a salute back to the beginning days of the Petroleum User Group, here in the Energy Capital of the World!
