2nd Annual

Rocky Mountain Gas Symposium

Maximizing Production Potential and Easing Infrastructure Constraints in the Hottest New Region of Energy Development

Thursday, February 06, 2003

About

The Rockies is quickly becoming America's production hotspot. Do you have the forecasts, techniques and technologies to give your company a competitive edge?

The Rockies boasts some of the most promising conventional and unconventional natural gas reserves North America has to offer, and is poised to play a leading role in satisfying US energy demand. However, challenges abound.

Infrastructure lagging behind the pace of production resulting in widening basis differentials, the need for regulatory change, and the "crisis of confidence" pervading energy markets are creating challenges for those looking to invest in the region. How will these challenges be overcome so the region can meet its full potential?

The American Conference Institute's 2nd Annual Rocky Mountain Gas Symposium addressed the major challenges facing Rockies production. You will get the latest forecasts, marketing and economics updates, and hear practical case studies of techniques and technologies to help you build a successful business strategy.

You'll get critical information on key issues, including:
  • Improving the basis differential in The Rockies
  • Who is taking the initiative to build new pipeline infrastructure?
  • The latest developments in unconventional and conventional gas
  • Cutting-edge production techniques for CBM
  • New technologies for maximum production potential and cost-effectiveness
  • Where are the key demand regions for Rocky Mountain gas?
  • Current and proposed regulatory developments regarding land management, environmental requirements and benchmarking
In an ever-changing market, you need up-to-the-minute information to stay ahead of the game.
