In the past few years, the expansion of crude-by-water (moving crude by barge or tanker) has outpaced crude-by-rail. Understanding the crude-by-water industry is essential for anyone who is involved with crude transportation and marketing. If you understand the industry, shipping crude by water can get you the best prices and maximize your profits. To do this you must understand the Jones Act, learn how to charter vessels cost-effectively, and become familiar with the rail-to-barge terminals, their prices, and their capacity.

INFONEX's Crude-by-Water North America will be the first conference exclusively dedicated to bringing the industry together to address these issues. You will make valuable connections with people from across the industry. You walk away from this conference with a comprehensive understanding of the crude-by-water industry. Our faculty of crude-by-water leaders and pioneers will provide you with the information that you need to master crude-by-water and maximize your profits.

You will hear from speakers who are heavily involved in shipping crude through each of the major crude-by-water networks:

  • The Mississippi, Ohio, and Arkansas Rivers
  • The East, West, and Gulf Coasts
  • The Pacific Northwest
  • Atlantic Canada

You will even hear about the potential for shipping domestic crude through the Panama Canal. You will also get detailed information on rail-to-barge terminals including volume, capacity, pricing, and which railways can give you access. You will hear from leading barge operators, ports, terminals, and railways. And, you will understand the Jones Act and learn how to cost-effectively charter and procure Jones Act vessels.

This will be the only conference in 2015 that will help you to make valuable business connections, build relationships, and get a serious understanding of how to thrive in the crude-by-water industry. It will also be the only conference that is designed specifically for crude shippers instead of investors. Register today!
