HOUSTON (PRWEB) May 21, 2018
Over five hundred industry professionals will convene in June in Boston to analyze and discuss the Northeast natural gas market and conduct business. The 23rd Annual LDC Gas Forum Northeast takes place June 11 - 13 in Boston. This is the premiere gathering for natural gas industry professionals, which is much more than simply a conference in that business transactions actually take place.
The Northeast region is one of the most dynamic natural gas markets in the U.S. While the Northeast has historically been the largest demand location for natural gas, the dramatic ramp up of shale driven supply from the nearby Marcellus/Utica producing formations has literally turned this market on its ear.
Historical pipeline transportation paths are being re-plumbed to move supply from the Northeast to serve demand further south, north and west. Natural gas fired power generation is growing substantially as it displaces coal. New LNG export facilities have come on stream.
Dawn Constantin, SVP Marketing & Regulatory Affairs, BP Energy, provides a keynote presentation on the market, from the perspective of one of the industry’s largest integrated energy companies with significant, producing, midstream and marketing assets.
Dr. Jim Duncan, Director, Market Research, ConocoPhillips, a perennial audience favorite, provides a lively keynote presentation offering his unique perspective on this region, considering a variety of influences including ongoing supply/demand balance gyrations, midstream buildout progress, policy, regulation, and weather.
Jim Simpson, President, East Daley Capital Advisors, provides a keynote presentation examining the new paradigm in natural gas commodity analytics. East Daley, a leading energy assets research firm, focuses on exposing the complex risks in the midstream energy market.
The program also includes six Panel presentations on a variety of topics with a total of 33 speakers. Panel topics include Market Dynamics/Fundamentals; New Technologies; Midstream Project Updates; and Gas Buyer’s Perspectives. Panelists include executives from leading industry players including: Dominion Energy Transmission, EDF Trading, Emera Energy, TransCanada, Portland Natural Gas Transmission System, Crestwood Midstream Partners, Statoil ENGIE Gas & LNG, Equinor Natural Gas, Millennium Pipeline, NextEra Energy, Enbridge, and NEXUS Gas Transmission.
This Forum focuses on the Northeast U.S. market, while four other Forums throughout the year address other key regions across the continent.
Participants at the Forums include market leaders, decision makers and subject matter experts. Industry segments represented include utilities, industrial gas consumers, producers, pipelines, marketers, regulators and analysts. The 2 1/2 day format is carefully structured for participants to hear from industry authorities about market developments, network with existing and new colleagues, and ultimately conclude transactions involving purchase, sale and transportation of natural gas.
Even in today's digital age, natural gas market participants appreciate a venue that facilitates face-to-face interaction. The LDC Gas Forum is uniquely structured to meet this requirement and has been the venue of choice for decades. Registration is still available at http://www.ldcgasforums.com/ne/
