Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 22, 2012
Infocast, the leading business intelligence and networking events producer in the oil and gas industry, is bringing its highly acclaimed Proppants Summit to Houston, TX and is scheduled to take place on December 4-6, 2012.
PacWest Consulting Partners recently reported that rig counts have fallen in 2012 and are expected to continue falling through 2013. The fall is putting downward pressure on demand for pressure pumping in all plays nationwide. The study indicated that hydraulic fracturing utilization will reach 78% by the end of 2012.
In addition, a recent study in Seeking Alpha indicated that in Wisconsin alone, 14 million tons of new capacity is currently being added, or 49% of current capacity. While the industry has certainly become much more sophisticated in recent years, moving from a chaotic “gold rush” to a fully-fledged market with marked improvements in transportation infrastructure and high-profile IPO’s, it is still imperative that proppants producers of all kinds from ceramic manufacturers to sand producers, meet the demand armed with agility and an in-depth knowledge of their customer’s needs to survive and thrive in a market that is still crowding with new supply capacity.
At Infocast’s 2nd Proppants Summit: The Right Proppant, At The Right Place, At The Right Time, market leaders from across the entire proppants value chain will gather to network, gain valuable insight and learn what changes in the oil and gas business affect them the most. E&P operators and oil field service providers will discuss their activities on a “play-by-play” basis. Proppants suppliers will meet new customers and learn how they can meet their specific needs. Transporters, both marine and overland, will network with suppliers and operators to identify how they can add the most value and realize the greatest profit from this new and developing supply line.
This event will bring together leading industry experts within the Proppants industry -- hear from companies such as Marathon Oil, Schlumberger, Trican Well Services, Breitling Oil & Gas, Black Gold Oilfield Services, Cadre Proppants, Chieftain Sand And Proppant, LLC, Superior Silica Sands, Mitsui Rail Capital, LLC, Raymond James & Associates, Canadian National Railway, D&I Terminals, Kansas City Southern Railway, Norfolk Sourthern, Port of Houston Authority and Werner Enterprises along with many more.
