From Euromoney Seminars:
Euromoney Seminars proudly presents the North American Midstream Infrastructure Finance Forum, the only event focused on the financing of midstream energy assets.
Strong growth in North America’s upstream business has dramatically altered the energy supply mix and created new opportunities for growth. To access new sources of conventional and unconventional supply, the midstream sector is hard at work to build out the infrastructure needed to transport, process, and store the oil and natural gas extracted from shale plays and bring product to market.
Houston will be the place to hear an esteemed line-up of speakers discuss the strategies and innovative deal structures needed to develop and finance North America’s for midstream energy infrastructure assets. The event offers a platform for debate and networking with leading midstream developers, MLPs, investment and commercial banks, private equity, infrastructure funds, regulators and service providers.
Join us in April in Houston’s Hyatt Regency Hotel to:
• Gain insight into what direction the midstream sector will be taking in 2013 and beyond through in-depth presentations and on-topic panel discussions
• Hear active MLPs, investors and banks debate solutions to pressing industry challenges and opportunities for growth
• Network with new and existing clients during conference lunches and refreshment breaks
Key topics to be discussed include:
• Unconventional shale, oil and gas – global commodities prices as a driver for the midstream sector
• MLPs: Strategies for funding asset development and acquisition
• What terms and returns are private equity looking for in midstream investments?
• Gas storage: Strategies for financing new asset development and expansion
