Infocast's "Montney/Horn River Infrastructure Finance & Development Summit"

Recent Production and M&A Activity Highlights in the Montney Shale Natural Gas Field and the Horn River Basin as Potential Game-Changers in the Modern Day Gold Rush for North American Shale Plays

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - February 18, 2011) - Infocast Events Canada, Inc. will present the premiere edition of the "Montney/Horn River Infrastructure Finance & Development Summit" on April 27-29, 2011 at the Commonwealth Hall & Conference Centre in Calgary, AB -- and the timing coincides with an acceleration of activity in these two North American shale plays, whose potential continues to consolidate and expand.

Recent production advances by companies such as Talisman Energy, Occidental Petroleum and Trilogy Energy Corporation (which recently acquired 28 sections of land at a cost of C$32.2 million) along with Encana's mega-deals with both Kogas Canada, Ltd. (C$545M) and last week's Co-Operation Agreement with PetroChina (C$5.4B), have anchored the Montney and Horn River Basin as two of North America's most anticipated shale plays.

With the advent of fulfilled potential comes the pragmatic but essential task of creating an optimal supporting infrastructure. The Summit will bring together front-line players from the oil & gas, infrastructure, government and financial communities to explore the opportunities and challenges in this potential modern-day gold rush. Keynote Speaker, Christopher Adams, an oil and gas specialist for the British Columbia Ministry of Energy, will kick-off a roster of confirmed speakers from companies including Alliance Pipeline, Baker Hughes Canada, Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, Bentek Energy, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Canadian National Railway, Northern Rockies Regional Municipality, Northern Development Initiative Trust, Spectra Energy Transmission, Target Logistics, and Ziff Energy Group, among many others.
