The transportation of Alberta's hydrocarbons is an important issue at the moment. As oil prices continue to stay low, companies needs to seek new opportunities to bring their products to new markets in order to stay competitive. There is good news, however, as prices are expected to rebound by the end of 2017. If this is the case, companies will be faced with a new set of challenges; specifically, how do we outcompete our competitors South of the border, who have a cheaper product and less stringent carbon policies? The answer is through transportation that is both time efficient and economically viable. Rail is expensive, and there is a current lack of pipeline capacity, so what does that mean for the Alberta oil and gas industry, and what can your company do to combat these issues?

Infonex Energy's Hydrocarbon Transportation will help your company explore its options and hear about new terminals and facilities being proposed. We will analyze market outlooks for LPG, NGL, LNG, and Crude, with a focus on how to successfully bring these products to markets. We will also look at the impending impact a new oil-friendly Republican government in the States will have on Alberta, and what we can do to prepare for any potential changes in regulations, policy, or trade agreements. Updates on transportation of dangerous goods will be given and case studies on how to effectively implement these regulations into your operations will be examined. We will examine both pipelines and railways more closely, explore their strengths and weaknesses, and potential opportunities and threats for both.

With the inevitable increase in oil prices just around the corner, you need to ensure your company is well positioned to tackle the upcoming challenges of stiff market competition and regulatory and policy changes. This conference is an opportunity for you to meet and network with other industry professionals from midstream, upstream, and downstream companies with the goal of attracting, retaining, and enhancing your business and its operations.
