For the crude oil transportation network and E&P companies
As crude oil volumes continue to rise, and available pipeline capacities are being utilised, the ever-increasing challenges of moving crude oil from wellhead to refinery are 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 from the Canadian shale plays such as the Duvernay, Montney, Bakken and Horn River continue to be a challenging issue and navigating through the market has become increasingly complex. Canadian transportation currently lacks the sustainable rail infrastructure, storage points, and transloading facilities required to support the ever-increasing volumes. According to Statistics Canada, the volume of oil on Canada’s railroads has soared by 64.6 per cent in just the past year. And in the past seven years, the number of rail cars carrying oil across Canada has quadrupled. Leading transportation companies together with rail and transloading facilities need to find practical solutions for responding to a low-price regime.
The objective of Canadian Crude-by-Rail 2019 Exhibition and Conference will be to bring the North American 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 East and West Coast Export Opportunities for marketing Canadian crude oil to the international markets with a special focus on transport capabilities and connectivity with a European and Asian outlook.
