    Will you be prepared when the crude export ban is lifted? Exporting crude seemed impossible a few years about, but now it's on the verge of becoming a reality. Your colleagues in the industry are already implementing plans for shipping US crude to Mexico and other foreign markets. To ensure that you're able to act when the ban is lifted, you must become familiar with these markets. You also need to understand the market for chartering non-Jones Act vessels. It is vital that you put these plans in place before the ban is lifted. This conference will help you do that.

    INFONEX's Crude-by-Water & Crude Export is the leading event in the crude-by-water industry. Crude producers, marketers, transporters, refiners, vessel operators, brokers, analysts, port operators, transloaders, railways and government from across North America will make connections and examine new opportunities for getting crude to market.

    Get a status update on the process to remove the export ban. Uncover opportunities for exporting crude to markets in Latin America and overseas when restrictions are lifted. Analyze the current trends in moving domestic crude on coastal and inland waterways. Hear case studies on critical crude ports like Corpus Christi and LOOP. Review activity on inland crude routes. Get new strategies that have been developed for reducing congestion in crude ports. Forecast crude prices and understand the impact of price volatility on crude-by-water transportation arrangements. Hear vessel manufacturers and brokers discuss vessel demand and status of orders. Get strategies for chartering Jones Act vessels.

    The crude industry is on the precipice of a monumental shift. New export opportunities will completely change the way the industry thinks about marketing crude. Transporting domestic crude on water will soon be one of the dominant methods of getting crude to market. You cannot afford to miss this opportunity. Join us in Houston and make sure you're prepared to act. Register today!
