Why Attend This Over Others? What's New?

The Crude Markets & Rail Takeaway Summit 2013 has been designed to specifically examine how rail expansion can help reduce price differentials on Western Canadian crude.

The Summit will host speakers delivering the very latest rail developments being proposed and constructed for taking crude by rail to key North American markets. Solutions will be provided for how to select optimal transport options in light of the changing pricing and market dynamics options, examine the latest rail loading, offloading and transloading projects, as well as determine the role rail will play if Keystone XL gets approved to determine how the project can be capitalized upon.

To alleviate the bottle-necking and saturated markets being experienced in Northern America, the importance of exporting Canadian crude to international markets is becoming ever more crucial. Therefore, speakers will also assess the current and future capabilities available for exporting Canadian product to Asia and Europe and open up lucrative new markets for crude.

This summit will be attended by all E&Ps in Western Canada who are actively looking to increase netback for their crude and reduce price differentials. It will also be attended by midstream executives who want to identify and assess the risks of the very latest midstream investment opportunities resulting from the shale oil boom.

Key Topics Also Being Addressed This Year Include...

CRUDE BY RAIL PROJECTS & MARKETS: Quantifying the current and future capacity of crude by rail transport to take advantage of price differentials and ensure Western Canadian produce reaches profitable markets

RAIL & KEYSTONE XL: Establishing the economic viability of rail if Keystone XL gets approved to assess the long term value of rail

REFINERY SPECIFICATIONS FOR LIGHT & HEAVY CRUDE: Assessing the current capacity of key refinery hubs across the US and which types of Canadian crude are being accepted to pinpoint optimal markets

PRACTICALITIES OF RAIL EXPANSION: Solutions for managing the economics, costs, regulations and logistics of expanding rail infrastructure to speed up development

IMPACTS ON PRICING DIFFERENTIALS: Examining how new rail developments will impact pricing differentials for Canadian crude in the main US markets
