Wet gas and liquid shale plays are a significant new trend in the energy industry. Industry leaders such as ExxonMobil and Chesapeake have made recent announcements about rapidly shifting their strategic focus and investment for development to the liquid rich and wet gas dominant shale areas. This expanding market shift is making for turbulence in the NGL, Crude, and Condensates markets across the entire value chain including production, processing, marketing, and distribution from a physical and commercial perspective.
This full-scale swing creates a vital need for the producers, processors, pipelines, storage, marketers, traders, and buyers/end users to gather to explore and understand the challenges and opportunities that exist for this megatrend in shale development. Effectively addressing this dynamic market is in no way “business as usual”—new strategies, counterparties, and service providers must be identified and engaged.
In the tradition of LDC Gas Forums’ highly successful regional natural gas events, and in the midst of this crucial market opportunity, the Inaugural NGL Forum will be held December 3–5, 2012, at the Hyatt Regency Riverwalk, San Antonio, Texas. NGL Forum is strategically located adjacent to one of the high-value NGL & Crude developments— the Eagle Ford shale.
According to Dr. Jim Duncan, Chief Analyst and Commodity Market Strategist, ConocoPhillips, “Natural Gas Liquids/Wet Gas is becoming the major driver of North American production trends. The NGL Forum will be the meeting place for sharing information, finding opportunities and networking with the converging liquids markets.” Focused on bringing together the key thought leaders and decision makers for NGLs, Crude & Condensates Products, Logistics and Markets, this is the first event where all facets of the Wet Gas industry come together including:
- Transportation logistics providers (rail, truck, barge, etc.)
- Data management providers
- Midstream infrastructure providers
NGL Forum offers the converging markets for liquids industry the perfect place to explore opportunities, challenges and network during facilitated activities including golf and tours, as well as hear from industry leaders on vital issues and forecasts in just 2 action-packed, deal-making days.
According to Christy Coleman, Director, “Over the past 25 years, the LDC Gas Forum events have become the industry’s leading events. This same highly successful formula that brings together suppliers and buyers of energy commodities and services is what NGL Forum promises to deliver!”
