    The crude-by-rail industry is reacting to changes on two different fronts. On the safety front, new regulations are out, and more will be released in early 2015. It is vital that you understand how changes to tank car specifications and crude testing will impact your business. You'll also need to hear about the new regulations that are about to come out. On the crude marketing front, lower crude prices mean the industry has to reevaluate the economics of crude-by-rail. You need to figure out where Canadian crude will get the best prices. You need to get caught up on developments with railway and terminal capacity. You also need to find out which markets are buying Canadian crude.

    INFONEX's second annual Crude-by-Rail conference will build upon last year's success and provide the crude-by-rail industry with a forum to network, make connections and build relationships. Our faculty of industry leaders will provide updates on markets and destinations for Canadian crude, network and infrastructure developments, crude pricing expectations, and safety regulations.

    Find out how new safety regulations will impact your business. Calculate the new economics of crude-by-rail. Compare rail economics with Energy East, Keystone XL, and Northern Gateway. Find new markets for Canadian bitumen and light crude. Hear the railways discuss their network improvements and new destinations. Map out Canadian transload facilities and get status updates on development projects. Take advantage of rail's optionality and combine rail with waterborne vessels and pipeline.

    With new regulations set to come out, and lower crude prices causing uncertainty, now is the ideal time to attend. Join us in Calgary to make connections and get a comprehensive understanding of crude markets, and the crude-by-rail industry. Register today!
