Thank you for attending the 2014 A&D Strategies and Opportunities Conference and Workshop
This year 550+ attendees and 29 speakers packed The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Dallas, TX for a sold-out event. Attendees experienced two solid days of networking, deal-making, industry coverage and interactive learning opportunities.
The 2014 A&D Workshop also gave attendees a unique opportunity to test their negotiation skills through the ever-popular "Let's Make a Deal" Lab and the A&D Shark Tank. Both hands-on sessions allowed participants to practice today's most-successful A&D tactics in a fun competitive environment.
The conference may be over, but the conversation isn't. Find out what other attendees are saying about the 2014 A&D Strategies and Opportunities conference and workshop. We would love to hear about your experience too!
And be sure to save the date for next year’s event, scheduled September 9-10, 2015 at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Dallas, TX.
2014 Midstream Trends: Company Consolidation The more things change, the more they stay the same.
In last year’s Midstream Business Midstream Rankings, we noted that consolidation was a major story heading forward and that has certainly been the case.
Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP (NYSE: KMP) acquired Copano Energy LLC; Crosstex Energy merged with Devon Energy’s (NYSE: DVN) midstream assets to form general partner EnLink Midstream LLC (NYSE: ENLC) and MLP EnLink Midstream Partners LP (NYSE: ENLK); EnCana Corp. (NYSE, TO: ECA) created MidCoast Energy Partners LP (NYSE: MEP); Williams Cos. Inc. (NYSE: WMB) acquired Access Midstream Partners LP (NYSE: ACMP); and Energy Transfer Partners LP (NYSE: ETP) continued to reap the benefits of its myriad midstream holdings.
However, the dominant players at the top of our rankings remain the same as they have for seven straight years with DCP Midstream Partners LP (NYSE: DPM) and Enterprise Products Partners LP (NYSE: EPD) holding the top two spots in our top gas processors and top NGL producer rankings.
