SUGAR LAND, TX–(Marketwired – Jan 13, 2016) – The impact of lower oil and gas prices is being felt not only in the Oil & Gas sector, but throughout all industrial sectors. While less drilling activity is having adverse effects on other industries from pipe and equipment manufacturers to frac sand miners, lower natural gas prices continue to encourage development in the Chemical Processing Industry, as inexpensive natural gas feedstock encourages development in ethylene production, as well as the methanol and agricultural chemicals sectors. In addition, a burgeoning domestic micro-liquefied natural gas (LNG) market continues to develop.
As the global economy adjusts to lower commodity prices and adverse capital flows from emerging markets, how will the U.S. economy perform in the upcoming year during these volatile times? What will be the impact on industrial plant spending?
Industrial Info’s upcoming Industrial Market Outlook & Networking Event in Houston, Texas, will seek to answer these and other questions, including:
- How is the newly lifted U.S. crude oil export ban expected to impact industrial spending in 2016?
- Will the renewal of federal wind and solar incentives create a resurgence of renewable energy projects in the coming years?
- What is the likelihood that the many planned LNG export projects will actually go ahead?
In addition to our top-line spending forecast and labor market analysis, our industry experts will provide outlooks for the following industries:
- Power Generation
- Oil & Gas Terminals, Production and Pipelines
- Petroleum Refining
- Chemical Processing
After the presentations, a special “meet and greet” session will be held. Complimentary drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be available, providing you valuable opportunities to network with your peers and ask questions of our industry experts.
This complimentary event will begin on Tuesday, January 19 at 3:30 p.m. at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston. Last year, more than 1,700 people attended this event, and space is limited, so make sure to RSVP today!
