Rail has facilitated the rapid development of the Bakken oil industry and allowed crude to get to market efficiently and cost-effectively. New government regulations however have made moving crude on rail more complex. New testing requirements will increase costs and turnaround times. Some states and cities have put temporary bans on Bakken crude, and others have required that trains alter their routes to avoid urban areas. Regulations like these will ultimately increase costs but rail will continue to be a viable option for transporting Bakken crude. The Niobrara region is increasingly using rail to transport crude as well, and new transloading facilities are being developed as production increases.
INFONEX's Crude-by-Rail: Bakken and Niobrara has been designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the crude-by-rail industry, and at the same time give you opportunities to network and make connections. This conference will examine regulatory developments across North America and evaluate their impact on the Bakken and Niobrara markets. Our faculty of leading experts will give advice on how to ensure operations are in compliance with new government requirements and expectations.
Our speakers will provide insights into the economics of crude-by-rail along with pricing dynamics and production forecasts. Speakers from every link in the crude-by-rail supply chain will explore the markets for Bakken and Niobrara crude and the many options available for getting crude to market.
This will be the first conference dedicated exclusively to providing crude-by-rail solutions for the Bakken and Niobrara markets. Join us in Denver to get a comprehensive understanding of the crude-by-rail industry and develop strategies for optimizing your crude transport operations.
