HOUSTON, Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- James J. Volker, chairman and CEO, Whiting Petroleum Corp., will deliver the opening keynote at Hart Energy's inaugural Rockies Midstream conference on December 6, 2012, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. The event will provide fresh perspectives on North American pipeline, treatment, and storage infrastructure.
Volker's remarks, "Producer's Perspective: A Spotlight on Crude in the Bakken," will examine the current forecast for the potential bounty of the Bakken.
This conference is a direct response to the unconventional resource revolution sweeping across the entire U.S. As unconventional technology is applied to Rockies basins — which have long histories of oil and gas production — volumes are increasing dramatically. The midstream sector is working hard to deliver this new production to markets. This conference will answer questions producers, shippers, and end-users have about the business opportunities these developments create.
"We're going to examine the relationship between crude oil, NGLs, and natural gas moving in and out of the Rockies," says John Harpole, Hart Energy's senior midstream advisor. "We're going to ask and answer the tough questions — 'What does the future hold? What is the near-term future of midstream in the Rockies, and how can we shape our businesses to best serve our customers?'"
To date, other industry speakers on the agenda include:
- Bob Clark, chairman & CEO, Bear Tracker Energy LLC
- Porter Bennett, president and CEO, Ponderosa Advisors
- Tad True, vice president, Bridger Pipeline LLC
- Bill Barnett, vice president, nitrogen projects, Dyno Nobel
- Stuart Nance, vice president, marketing, Bill Barrett Corp.
