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.


Executive Order May Require Review Of MLP Qualifying Income
On April 21, the Trump administration issued an executive order that requires the Department of the Treasury to review all “significant” tax regulations issued after 2015. Any reviewed regulations that are deemed unduly complex or burdensome, or to exceed the authority of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), may be modified or rescinded, or have their effective date delayed or suspended. Treasury is required to issue an interim report by June 20 identifying all significant regulations that may be the subject of further action, and to submit a report to the president by Sept. 18 recommending specific further actions as to the identified regulations. It is not clear whether the order will require a review of the final regulations defining “qualifying income” issued in January 2017.  Treasury previously determined that those regulations were not “significant,” but the new executive order provides that earlier determinations are not controlling for this purpose.
