Market Overview

Executives and Thought Leaders From Leading Energy Companies Gather to Analyze and Discuss Plans to Buy, Sell and Transport Natural Gas in the Mid-Continent Market


The LDC Gas Forum Mid-Continent occurs September 10-12 2018, in Chicago at the Marriott Magnificent Mile

HOUSTON (PRWEB) July 26, 2018

Over five hundred industry professionals will convene in Chicago in September to analyze and discuss the Mid-Continent natural gas market, and conduct business transactions. The 30th Annual LDC Gas Forum Mid-Continent takes place September 10 - 12 in downtown Chicago. This is the premier gathering for natural gas industry professionals, which is much more than simply a conference in that participants also complete business transactions.

The Mid-Continent region is one of the most dynamic natural gas markets in the U.S. The Mid-Continent has historically been a significant demand location for natural gas, and a cross-roads for natural gas being transported from traditional supply regions in the U.S. Gulf Coast, Rockies and imports from Canada. The U.S. Shale Revolution has dramatically changed the paradigm, causing a re-plumbing of traditional transportation routes. As a result, the Mid-Continent market is in significant transition with changing sources of supply, transportation routes, evolving market participants and commercial implications.

The LDC Gas Forum Mid-Continent is the premier annual event drawing together the industry's key influencers. Celebrating its 30 year anniversary, the LDC Gas Forum Mid-Continent has been the choice of leading industry players in this important market for three decades.

Jim Redford, VP Business Development, Union Gas (Enbridge), provides a keynote presentation, from the perspective of one of North America's largest natural gas utilities.

Richard Smead, Managing Director, Advisory Services, RBN Energy, provides market insights and analysis, from one of the industry's leading market analytical firms.

Teri Viswanath, Managing Director, S&P Global PIRA, provides a keynote presentation on North American Gas Trade looking at the 30 year evolution from import dependency to global supplier.

Dr. Jim Duncan, Director, Market Research, ConocoPhillps, a perennial audience favorite, is the luncheon keynote, providing his lively unique perspective on this region, considering a variety of influences including ongoing supply/demand balance gyrations, midstream buildout progress, policy, regulation, and weather.

The program also includes three Panel presentations on a variety of topics with a total of over twenty presentations. Panel topics include Market Dynamics/Fundamentals; Midstream Project Updates; and Gas Buyer's Perspectives. Panelists include executives from leading industry players including: Allegro, BP, Complete Intelligence, East Daley Capital, ICF, Macquarie, Madison Gas & Electric, NextEra, NICOR Gas, OPIS Point Logic, Prometheus Energy, RBN Energy, S&P Global, Tallgrass Energy, Union Gas, and United States Gypsum.

This Forum focuses on the Mid-Continent U.S. market, while four other Forums throughout the year address other key regions across the continent.

Participants at the Forum include market leaders, decision makers and subject matter experts. Industry segments represented include utilities, industrial gas consumers, producers, pipelines, marketers, regulators and analysts. The 2 1/2 day format is carefully structured for participants to hear from industry authorities about market developments, network with existing and new colleagues, and ultimately conclude transactions involving purchase, sale and transportation of natural gas.
Even in today's digital age, natural gas market participants appreciate a venue that facilitates face-to-face interaction. The LDC Gas Forum is uniquely structured to meet this requirement and has been the venue of choice for decades. Registration is still available at
