Oil & Gas Transportation and Logistics USA
Getting logistics and transportation issues for the O&G market on the right track to maximize margins and overcome key regulatory and industry challenges.
Today, 70% of oil & gas products in the US are shipped by pipeline, 23% are on tankers and barges over water, 4% by truck, and only 3% are shipped by rail. Yet, amid a North American energy boom and a lack of pipeline capacity, crude oil shipping on rail is not only increasing exponentially, but also becoming the industry’s solution for one of the most limiting bottlenecks it is facing.
As expected, for every solution, there is a new challenge: In 2013, more crude oil was spilled in U.S. rail incidents than in the previous 37 years. Ensuing regulations impose new guidelines and challenges to transportation companies, which in turn cannot respond accordingly to the O&G market demands.
Under this complex scenario, Upstream, Downstream and Midstream companies are trying to be creative as to how they are going to transport all their material from drilling sites to refineries, while at the same time being process-efficient due to the huge operational and logistics costs of running these facilities. IQPC’s O&G Transportation & Logistics summit will not only address these key issues but also offer solutions to the industry based on practical case studies and commercial approaches.
Attendees will benefit from:
- A focus day entirely dedicated to help creating a strategic plan to improve efficiency and assess ROI of technologies that helps increase profits
- A panel with the industry’s take on regulatory main concerns and short-term solutions
- An exclusive technology-focused interactive session so producers, refiners and transportation companies can learn about the newest technologies to improve their day-to-day work
- Peer-to-peer interactive roundtables focused on specific challenges and potential solutions
...Just to name a few!
