ABSTRACT of Presentation
This is a different program & speaker than announced in the SPE-GCS CONNECT newsletter.
The U.S. upstream oil industry continues to grow new crude oil volumes despite low prices. The Permian region now produces over 2.5 million barrels per day. The Scoop/Stack and Niobrara continue to set new oil production highs and the Bakken is again above 1 million barrels per day. Other crudes are soon to enter the market that includes both US refineries and increasingly across the globe reached by high-capacity crude terminals and tankers. What is pushing crude exports to nearly 2 million barrels per day, and why is year-to-date refinery utilization setting this decade's record above 90%? Amid WTI crude discounts more than $6 per barrel versus Brent, Greg Haas, Director of Integrated Energy at Houston-based global energy consultancy Stratas Advisors, will unpack his firm's forecasts to highlight project developments in the increasingly inter-linked U.S. and global oil industry. Haas will present from his team's 2018 outlooks for production, pipeline and port infrastructure, and crude prices, margins and differentials.
