A whirlwind of changes face the oil industry throughout the geopolitical landscape. President-elect Donald Trump's administration promises massive changes in US energy and climate policy. Opec members agreed to cut production in 2017 for the first time since 2008. Mexico is reforming to liberalize its energy industry and the Canadian sector is reacting with hopes to capitalize on changes under the new US administration. 

Hear from industry leaders and top policy experts in January to get a clearer picture of changes you can expect in 2017 and how they can impact your business. The Argus Americas Crude Summit will bring together hundreds of industry participants to plan strategy and network. Do not wait. Time is short and your success depends on reliable insight.

Our 2017 program will deliver insights on key questions facing market participants, including:

  • How will markets move toward balance in a world of unfettered exports by the US and Iran and possible surprise production policies by OPEC and non-OPEC producers?
  • What are the financial vital signs of US shale producers? Who will have access to capital? 
  • How will Mexican energy reform, government turmoil in Venezuela and a host of other political influences across the Americas affect production, trade and transport of crude oil? 
  • Do US refiners have a plan for shoring up margins and maintaining throughput amid soft demand growth for gasoline and diesel? 
  • What should we expect from US energy policy under a new Administration and Congress? Who is really calling the shots and what are their priorities?
    ...and much more!
