CSP 2018 Program Overview
Oil and gas activity in the Appalachian Basin, like all plays nationwide, has ridden an economic roller coaster over the last decade.
Throughout the last 10 years, the Marcellus, then the Utica Shale plays have soared in terms of production, enticing producers ranging from supermajors, to long-time conventional players in the basin, to jump into unconventional operations.
Now, in 2018, pipelines, long considered by Marcellus and Utica producers as the hand brake on their operations, have come online, with five lines alone adding 1.15 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of incremental natural gas takeaway out of the region. And more is slated for the new year.
Royal Dutch Shell is moving full-speed ahead with its $6 billion ethane cracker and polyethylene units northwest of Pittsburgh now past the moving dirt-installing infrastructure phase, and into raising iron. Seen as a catalyst for related activity since first announced as a possibility more than five years ago, the Shell complex is seen by recent studies as the first of what could be four, perhaps five additional facilities.
Finally, experts have warned that with cracker(s) returning to Appalachia for the first time in more than 50 years, natural gas liquids storage must move from a luxury to a necessity. Such a project, estimated to cost $10 billion, but worth a projected $36 billion in new chemical and plastics industry investment and create 100,000 new area jobs, recently passed a major hurdle, as the initiative received approval for the first of two application phases for a $1.9 billion U.S. Department of Energy loan.
Realizing the importance of the above subject trio to Appalachia and beyond, Kallanish Energy presents CSP Crackers, Storage, Pipelines, an intense, half-day program to bring you up to speed on projects underway, announced and now on the drawing board. Sub-topics to be included will deal with environmental issues, labor (construction sector), innovation (success strategies), and a 2018 O&G forecast.
