Modeling to identify new infrastructure is required so the industry can manage this exceptional growth opportunity.

HSB Solomon Associates LLC (Solomon), the leading performance improvement company for the global energy industry, announced today that Senior Vice President Bill Gwozd will speak at the 22nd Annual Gas Processing Association Canada/Petroleum Joint Venture Association (GPAC/PJVA) Conference. The joint conference will be held on Thursday, October 29, 2015, at The Fairmont Palliser in Calgary, Alberta.

Gwozd, who has 36 years’ experience regarding long-term supply, demand, transport, storage, and price outlooks, is scheduled to speak on the liquefied natural gas (LNG) and natural gas liquid (NGL) outlook for western Canada. The presentation will cover the strong natural gas demand growth in western Canada due to potential LNG exports, gas for oil sands, shifting of power generation fuels to natural gas, and other emerging gas needs. Awakening the Canadian giant natural gas field will reveal many unique conditions that will significantly impact the western Canada business such as:

  •     The amount and type of new gas available for customized gas processing
  •     The yearly gas compositional changes prior to the Alberta straddle plants
  •     The amount of NGL by component that could be available for export to Asia
  •     An independent view as to new NGL pipeline capacity required

“New sources of ethane, propane, butane, and condensate will emerge as a by-product of this future gas supply development,” Gwozd said. “Therefore, modeling to identify new infrastructure (e.g., gathering systems, new processing plants, and long-haul transportation) is required so the industry can manage this exceptional growth opportunity.”

GPAC is a non-profit organization that promotes the interaction and exchange of ideas and technology to those involved with or affected by the hydrocarbon processing industry. PJVA develops reports on various issues related to the petroleum industry, providing members a valuable resource reference. The conference theme is “Shattering Conventional Notions, the New Reality of Unconventional Resources.”

The conference networking reception will take place from 4–6 p.m. immediately after the conference. For more information, visit:
