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.

US East Coast Refiners Eye Texas Oil From Permian, Eagle Ford
U.S. East Coast refiners are looking to buy increasing volumes of domestic crude oil from the Gulf Coast, two sources said, the latest twist in a trade flow upheaval in the wake of the opening of the Dakota Access pipeline.Major U.S. East Coast refiners profited from railing hundreds of thousands of barrels of discounted Bakken crude to their plants daily from 2013 until 2015. But as more and more pipelines were built in North Dakota, the discount began to disappear, and so did the rail cars.Now, at least two East Coast refiners, Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX) and Delta Air Lines Inc.'s (NYSE: DAL) subsidiary Monroe Energy LLC, are looking to move more crude by ship from Texas into the Philadelphia area. The Dakota Access pipeline starts up in May, giving the Gulf access to the Bakken Shale play, and will likely sap any lingering economic incentive for Bakken-by-rail, which is more expensive.
