Infocast's Transportation Logistics for the Oil & Gas Industry Event Coming to Houston in June

Increased Oil and Gas Drilling Across North America Stimulates a New Golden Age for the Rail, Trucking and Barge Industries

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - May 17, 2012) - Infocast's Transportation Logistics for the Oil & Gas Industry Summit will be held at the Hilton Houston Post Oak from June 4-6, 2012 in Houston, TX. The Summit corresponds with the need for infrastructure development and logistical hurdles of getting materials and products in and out of areas experiencing the major shale boom. This highly anticipated event will feature industry giants from Canadian Pacific, CSX Transportation, Savage Services, Greenbrier, GATX, and Watco Corporation.

According to the American Petroleum Institute, over 10,638,000 barrels of crude oil in the U.S. are being produced each day -- and currently not enough infrastructure build-out is available to support these high volumes. Labor and equipment shortages are also complicating matters and therefore hampering transport of the materials needed to support the development of many emerging North American plays. Oil & gas companies must learn to work closely with the trucking, barging and railroad industries to help provide solutions to get their products to their final end-users.

Therefore, Infocast introduces the Transportation Logistics for the Oil and Gas Industry Summit, a unique, cutting-edge event that will bring together the E&P companies, field service companies, midstream providers, railroad and trucking companies, equipment manufacturers and financial investors who are essential in facilitating the necessary expansion of "pipelines on wheels." Only those market players with the most up-to-date information and strategies will be able to take full advantage of the myriad of business opportunities associated with transportation in the current oil and gas-drilling boom.
