Crude By Rail 2014: Kansas City Southern Railway

By American Business Conferences

Feb 11, 2014
 

The conference will provide an area of interest to all attendees, whether they are geographically focused on the West Coast, East Coast, or Gulf Coast.  

 
 

What areas of exciting activity do you see for crude by rail in North America, and why?




Condensate returning to Canada may be an interesting development. This would be a
back-haul to the heavy crude moving outbound.


Terminal capabilities need to develop in the US Gulf Coast to

reload the trains in the same terminal which unloaded the heavy crude. At the same time, Canadian crude origin terminals will need to unload unit trains of condensate at the same terminal which will reload the train.

  


What are you most looking forward to hearing about at Crude By Rail 2014?

 

Crude by Rail 2014 has a great lineup of speakers and topics. The conference will provide an area of interest to all attendees, whether they are geographically focused on the West Coast, East Coast, or Gulf Coast. The conference will also allow attendees to get an update on pipeline development and railcar regulations and design.

 




 

What about the event attracted you to participate as a speaker?

 

Since I was provided the opportunity to participate during other American Business Conference events in 2013, I was impressed with the organization of the conferences and the quality of speakers/attendees which were attracted to the conferences. I am able to network with key professionals in the Crude by Rail industry to find solutions to get crude to various markets.

 

 

 

What major developments do you see over the next year as having a fundamental impact on the future of the network?

 

The future of the network will be impacted by continued development of terminals, at both the origins and destinations, to transport heavy Canadian Crude into the US Gulf Coast markets.  Another issue will be the regulations imposed on railcar tank design may have an impact on availability of equipment to ship crude oil.
