Exports 2018 banner

The Argus Petroleum Exports Summit has been developed to help US crude marketers, midstream operators and refiners develop their strategies for success in the international markets. The conference will frame the global hot spots for crude runs and trade based on demand factors and bracket the crude supply outlook to set the basis for volume and quality of crude trade. We will explore global supply and demand trends and analyze the logistics and infrastructure of exporting crude, including pipeline capacity, expansions and investments, risks, shipping, waterway concerns, blending, quality requirements and more. 

Join 200 refiners, blenders, infrastructure firms and shippers to discuss market opportunities and network with your peers at 8+ hours of scheduled networking activities.
