ENR to Host Energy Construction Summit, November 18, 2014 in Houston, TX
NEW YORK – October 22, 2014 – The U.S. energy industry boom has created the biggest engineering and construction need in a generation. Significant energy-delivery projects are being planned from coast to coast to support the nation’s oil, gas and natural gas liquids. To assist industry professionals in making the most of these unprecedented opportunities, McGraw Hill Construction’s ENR will host its second annual Energy Construction Summit on Tuesday, November 18, 2014 at the JW Marriott Houston.
The second annual ENR Energy Construction Summit will bring together energy experts, oil and gas producers, pipeline owners, petrochemical giants, and prospective LNG exporters to discussion the energy boom and the needs of emerging energy-related mega-projects. Attendees will learn about planned energy projects and how to develop long-term partnerships with fast-moving midstream energy companies; discover why the ramp up in oil and gas production will spur a need for new pipelines, petrochemical plants and LNG export facilities; understand why new transportation needs for oil and NGLs are driving construction of rail, ship and barge loading/offloading terminals and related port work; and find out what construction projects are planned and where, and the trades and skills needed.
This one-day conference will feature keynote addresses by Scott Duncan, Vice President, FMI Capital Advisors, and Charles McConnell, Executive Director of the Energy & Environment Initiative at Rice University.
