Examining the Paradigm Shift in Petrochemical Manufacturing in the Appalachian Region
As the petrochemical industry undergoes structural change, the increasing importance of shale petrochemicals in the manufacturing process will only continue to gain steam. IQPC's will focus on the business, commercialization, transportation, logistical, and economic implications of this paradigm shift. In order to ensure that the continued economic development of the industry – this summit will highlight the necessity for increased processing plant capacity, transportation (rail/surface/pipeline) infrastructure capacity, and how the economics of the shale play (feedstock, NGL price, export market potential and facilities) will continue to transform the space and provide substantial economic opportunities to all those involved and the US as a whole.
The Shale Petrochemical Manufacturing Summit will focus on economic, logistical, transportation, and supply chain management issues with regard to the petrochemical industry’s use of shale gas & oil in the manufacturing process. The conference will convene the entire industry value chain for 3 days of high-level discussions on commercialization, and delve into the opportunities available to the manufacturing industry due to the greater abundance of shale derived oil & gas; especially from the Appalachian region.
By attending this conference you will get a sophisticated overview of the opportunities and challenges that will change the face of the American manufacturing industry over the next decade and beyond. From case study presentations to panel discussions, this conference will be about sharing experiences, identifying opportunities, networking, and implementing key strategies.
Attendees will Benefit by:
- Networking with Decision Makers and Thought Leaders who are behind the renaissance of the American Petrochemical Manufacturing Industry
- Focusing on the challenges and opportunities available to the further development, and impact, of the downstream stage of Appalachian shale plays
- Understanding the broader implications of shale development including local development issues and workforce education
