Crude Oil Markets Rail & Pipeline Takeaway Summit: Western Canada

A colossal boom in unconventional crude oil production in Western Canada and fluctuations in oil and gas prices have brought great changes to North American energy market dynamics, opening up unprecedented commercial opportunity for the industry but also creating price-threatening gaps in between production and midstream services.

Consequently, pinpointing new market opportunities and reducing the costs of shipping crude to domestic and international markets is now receiving more investment in the form of time and capital than ever before. Midstream companies are ploughing resources into developing new takeaway infrastructure to cost-efficiently take crude to new markets in the form of both pipeline and rail whilst E&P companies are quantifying costs, comparing netbacks and deciding whether to use rail, pipeline or both to ensure crude is quickly taken gets to the place it will receive the most favorable price and netback.

Crude Oil Markets, Rail And Pipeline Takeaway Summit: Western Canada 2012 is Canada’s first summit bringing 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.
