Positive Signs Emerge for 2010 Capital Spending in the Oil & Gas Transmission Industry, a Feature of Navigating the Currents of Change on

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - October 7, 2009) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Because of the recession, the Oil & Gas Transmission Industry has been going through an adjustment period or global reset of sorts. In 2009, economics, combined with regulatory and funding issues, forced many companies to place projects on hold, delay spending or cancel projects entirely. Project owners are re-evaluating projects and trying to reduce costs where possible.

Against such a backdrop, one might expect a pessimistic outlook, but certain sectors show promising signs for a positive 2010 as far as capital spending is concerned. Some of the more positive sectors include shale gas developments such as the Barnett Shale, which are attracting increased pipeline infrastructure construction, as well as CO2 pipeline construction.
