Unconventional oil and gas dynamics have brought new life to the region’s midstream sector. Is your business prepared to respond?
Increased domestic supply of oil and gas inputs and increased downstream processing capacity offers the prospects of a renaissance in U.S. manufacturing subject to one key constraint: the midstream infrastructure. This includes the necessary means to gather inputs, process them, transport them to the downstream hubs, and then move the finished products to markets. In response, a midstream infrastructure building boom has begun in the United States.
The infrastructure necessary to gather and transport commodities to resurgent downstream and chemicals sectors, new gas fired power generation, and other new demand requires investment approaching a trillion dollars by some estimates.
