The renowned annual Crude By Rail congress will continue to be held in Houston every August while the Crude By Rail February travelling series will take place in a different PADD area every year - this year for the first time, we are coming to California to facilitate the meeting of key terminal owners and refinery's in the Western PADD 5 region.

Why California This Year?....

With big question marks over the commercial viability of railing crude to the gulf coast in light of the recent collapse in price differentials, there has been overwhelming demand from E&P and rail operators to explore California and other West Coast markets as economically viable alternatives.

Hosting a huge hub of refineries and potential rail market destinations, this year's Crude By Rail February Series will be held in California with the sole purpose of providing producers and rail operators with the enhanced opportunity to meet key decision makers from pivotal West Coast terminal projects and refineries. Key stakeholders will be able to gain first hand knowledge on....

  • The available offloading facilities in the West Coast to assess connectivity, volume capacity, transit time and transportation
  • The Position Of California And West Coast refineries on accepting different types of crude being produced by other US states
  • The viability of West Coast markets by understanding the nature and extent of investment required to maximize connectivity to domestic supply 

Our history and success in the Unconventional Oil & Gas sector began in 2010. Since then we have spearheaded a multitude of global initiatives that have been closely researched with the industry to ensure that specific solutions to the current technical, strategic, and tactical challenges are being delivered.

In the last year alone, our solutions-focused research has been successful in attracting over 3,000 attendees to our Unconventional Oil & Gas series, with 85% of these being executives from E&P operators.

This coming February, the Crude By Rail 2014, New Destinations, Increasing Capacity will be held in California  delivering two days of case studies on the hottest issues in understanding how rail operators seek to meet the demands of refiners and producers through the expansion of railroads, rail cars & terminal capacity

We held the Crude By Rail & Intermodal Supply Chain Optimization & Opportunities Summit in August 21-22, 2013 Dallas, Texas

With 20+ presentations from the entire supply chain, including perspectives from leading refiners, E&P companies, railroads, transloaders, terminal operators and producers, this forum continues to be the sector's foremost learning and networking opportunity. Unique in its pan North-American supply chain scope, as well as being the only event examining the crude by rail and intermodal network through end user concerns.

We also  held Upgrading Crude By Rail Capacity 2013 February 26-27, 2013 Houston, Texas. After holding many events in this area, our research led us to a 'refiner-led' Summit, which was an overwhelming success.
