Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 07, 2015
Following the success of 2015’s Energy Construction Forum (ECF), an industry advisory board comprised of key players involved with midstream and downstream energy projects and construction has come together to assist in creating a forum with the most relevant and vital content. Taking place once again in the heart of project activity along the Gulf Coast, ECF 2016 will be held March 1-2 at the Moody Gardens Convention Center in Galveston, Texas.
“We are pleased to have such an important group of energy construction and project management professionals guiding the content and direction for this fast-growing and critical industry gathering,” said Gulf Publishing Company President and CEO John Royall. “These industry experts will assist in creating a rare opportunity for this energy community to engage with key decision-makers and executives who are directly involved in the planning, execution and purchasing decisions that impact their project’s success and bottom line."

Hosted by Hydrocarbon Processing and Construction Boxscore Database and organized by Gulf Publishing Company and Stone Fort Group, this forum will once again bring together key stakeholders in the rapidly-growing marketplace for midstream and downstream energy projects and construction.
With estimated projects at more than $100 billion and growing in North America, ECF is the best opportunity to connect with major project leaders in the energy industry, interact with key engineering firms and suppliers, and engage on topics regarding the opportunities, challenges and solutions for the current state of the industry. The forum caters to companies involved in major projects: expansions, new construction and infrastructure development for the petrochemical, refining, chemical, pipeline, terminals & storage, loading/transfer systems, GTL, LNG and NGLs industries.
With an attendance of 350+ in its inaugural year, including leading E&C firms and OOs, the conference and expo brought together many of the leading stakeholders for our market. With added support through the creation of the advisory board, we look forward to a prominent and expanded event for 2016. In this turbulent oil & gas economy, the Energy Construction Forum demonstrates the resilience of one of America’s most dynamic industries and the launch of a new gathering place for energy project leaders and stakeholders to come together and find solutions.
