For the crude oil transportation network and E&P companies

As crude oil volumes continue to rise, and available pipeline capacities are being utilized, the ever-increasing challenges of moving crude oil from wellhead to refinery is creating record price differentials. Producers and refiners want to know the latest in rail investment and construction plans, rail loading and offloading developments, and total connectivity solutions to the North American markets and beyond.

In addition to market constraints, the logistics and delivery of crude oil across the North American shale plays continue to be a challenging issue and navigating through the market has become increasingly complex. U.S. transportation facilities currently lack sustainable rail infrastructure, storage points, and transloading facilities required to support the ever-increasing volumes. Over the past seven years, the number of rail cars carrying oil across the continent has quadrupled, and now leading transportation companies, together with rail and transloading facilities need to find practical solutions in a low oil price market.

The objective of North American Crude-by-Rail 2021 Exhibition and Conference will be to bring the crude oil supply chain industry together to evaluate solutions for overcoming the logistical challenges of transporting crude oil by rail. The conference will also look at the East and West Coast Export Opportunities for marketing U.S. crude oil to the international markets with a special focus on transport capabilities and connectivity with a European and Asian outlook.

The Crude-by-Rail 2021 event will bring together key industry representatives, including E&P companies, regulators, freight and railroad operators, and solution providers to network and build cross-market relationships and to discuss the latest developments in the crude oil transportation and logistics infrastructure across North America. Be a part of the discussion that leads to take-home solutions to the current and critical transportation challenges facing North American oil and gas businesses today. Establish the direction and vision you need from the latest information from top industry performers. Case studies and real results will address the issues.

Key topics on this year’s agenda include:

  • Latest crude oil volumes and transportation forecasts
  • New rail loading, offloading, and transloading developments
  • Reducing transportation costs and railroad pricing dynamics
  • Optimizing existing rail infrastructure, storage points, and capacity
  • Addressing the issues of safety in crude oil transportation
  • Exporting North American crude oil to the international markets
