Did you miss… our September 2016 Business Utilities Conference?

This was a full-day conference for oil industry peers in commercial management, scheduling, middle- and back-office management, and project and process management positions.

The conference included a series of presentations, discussions, and case studies about how oil trading companies are using cutting edge technology and processes to collaborate with each other, their vendors, and with upstream suppliers and downstream customers to reduce risk, increase efficiency, and drive down costs in this era of cost containment and market uncertainty was followed by a networking dinner reception.

Would you like to learn more about any of the presentations or discussions? For more information about the agenda and speakers please see our agenda here; and our speaker bios here. THANK YOU sponsors, presenters and panelists!
