Our History In The Oil & Gas Industry

O&G Banner

Our history and success in the Unconventional Oil & Gas sector began in 2010. Since then we have spearheaded a multitude of global initiatives that have been closely researched with the industry to ensure that specific solutions to the current technical, strategic, and tactical challenges are delivered.

In the last year alone, our solutions focused research has been successful in attracting over 3,000 attendees to our Unconventional Oil & Gas series, with 85% of these being executives from E&P and Midstream operators.

The first event Crude Oil Markets, Rail And Pipeline Takeaway Summit: Western Canada 2012 was Canada's first summit of its kind and brought together CEOs and VPs of leading E&P and midstream companies to drive forward both immediate and long-term solutions for taking Canadian crude to end markets at the highest netback.

This event proved to be extremely popular with the industry and was successful in attracting over 250 delegates from across Canada and North America. Delegates attended this unique event to takeaway a detailed understanding of new product markets, downstream demand and a comprehensive analysis of the very latest transportation options available to enable a well-informed decision on the short and long-term marketing strategy that will receive highest netback.

The Crude Markets & Rail Takeaway Summit Canada 2013 is returning this year to drive crude rail infrastructure expansion to increase takeaway capacity, open up new markets & improve price differentials for light & heavy crude being produced in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin

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
