Host: Jay Boudreaux, Managing Director, Simmons & Company International

Join us at the Four Seasons Hotel as Rick Moncrief will update us on Caiman’s role in fulfilling industry’s critical need for midstream takeaway in the quickly expanding Utica Shale. Dennis McCanless will fill us in on how private equity has become a core fuel for this critical expansion. The popular format of a Business & Social Networking hour, with complimentary Hors’ D’ Oeuvres and a cash bar, followed by an hour-long program, will begin at 5:00 pm in the Mezzanine.

 

The tri-state area containing the Utica and Marcellus Shales has a long history of shallow low rate/ long life production. The phenomenal growth of production from these world class unconventional resources quickly overwhelmed any existing infrastructure and has required the construction of entirely new gathering and processing capacity, particularly in the rich-gas Marcellus and Utica plays. Midstream entities are quickly expanding to meet this critical need, overcoming the hurdles of difficult terrain, strained regulatory structures, and large capital requirements. How have Caiman and Flatrock successfully worked together to fulfill this need? What were the chief learnings from the Marcellus that will be used to accelerate Utica development? What are the new Utica challenges that will require different solutions to overcome?

 

We welcome you to join us for this informative discussion, as well as the fellowship and networking of the popular Social Hour at 5:00 pm.
