3rd Annual Marcellus Midstream Conference & Exhibition
David L. Lawrence Convention Center
1000 Fort Duquesne Blvd.
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15222

The proliferation of shale-gas production is causing a race to build the needed infrastructure to support production. As a result, producers, investors and capital providers like what they see. The ability to separate high-risk, high-reward, high-margin E&P activity from the less risky, but far more predictable, midstream business is attracting new capital expenditures.The Conference & Exhibition will focus on the opportunities surrounding the building out of the infrastructure needed in non-traditional petroleum-producing regions. As capital is becoming easier to obtain, and operators are exploring their options in shale-gas recovery, your company will want to exhibit at the one conference designed to bring the latest information to the industry.
Network with CEOs, CFOs, COOs, E&P and pipeline operators, pipeline schedulers and others from the gas storage, processing, and pipeline industries alongside capital providers and deal-makers. More than 1,400 attendees registered in 2011! Mark your calendar and plan to attend the largest Marcellus networking event of the year!  Conference Agenda
