New Connections – The future is now

With an estimated 1,200+ Tcf of natural gas in place, the prolific Marcellus and Utica plays have established themselves as world-class resources that are reshaping the energy industry. Current production is some 21 Bcf/d of natural gas and 106,000 bpd of crude oil. And that's driving midstream and downstream opportunities.

New demand (and midstream infrastructure to fuel it) is growing. Vast new natural gas markets are emerging as LNG export terminals like Dominion's Cove Point come online and multi-national companies like Shell move forward on massive ethane crackers to serve clients around the world.

The Marcellus-Utica Midstream conference and exhibition brings the region's top companies together for an in-depth look at upstream and midstream activity throughout Appalachia. Get the latest production estimates, learn about midstream projects planned and underway, and hear the latest forecasts on commodity prices and CAPEX investment. Don't miss this once-a-year opportunity!

NEW Content for 2017 – Take an inside look at new markets emerging for Appalachia's bounty of natural gas.


Oil Prices Strengthen As Market Awaits EIA Data
Oil prices strengthened on May 17 ahead of U.S. crude inventory data that could give investors a clue as to whether an OPEC-led output cut is making progress in reducing the persistent global supply overhang. Brent crude was up 33 cents at $51.98 per barrel (bbl) by 6 a.m. CT (11 GMT). West Texas Intermediate (WTI) light crude rose 18 cents to $48.84/bbl. Both benchmark prices started the day in negative territory after industry data from the American Petroleum Institute estimated that U.S. crude stocks had risen by 882 Mbbl in the week ending May 12 to 523 MMbbl.

ANALYSIS: China Deal Opens New Market For US LNG
Just four months after taking office, the Trump administration has made it clear that the LNG export industry will be a priority for the U.S. going forward. Less than a month after Gary Cohn, the director of Trump’s National Economic Council, named the permitting of the Jordan Cove project as his first priority, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced a trade agreement between Washington and Beijing that would open up Chinese markets for U.S. LNG exports, among other things. Though much of President Donald Trump’s trade rhetoric had been focused on China throughout the campaign and the beginning of his term, he has largely fixated on trying to right the imbalance of trade between the two countries rather than attempt to end or reduce trade altogether. Indeed, this deal that will encourage American exports to China and potentially lend support to the idea of Chinese investment in U.S. infrastructure falls in line with Trump’s stated goals of restoring the global power of the U.S.
