DENVER, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 07/19/11 -- The 2nd Annual Bakken Infrastructure Finance & Development Summit 2011 returns to Denver, CO from October 24-26, 2011 at the Marriott-City Center. The Summit corresponds with increased investment activity in the Williston Basin and the increased need for supporting infrastructure to get oil out and to the markets. This highly acclaimed event will feature industry titan Harold Hamm, CEO of Continental Resources and The Honorable Jack Dalrymple, Governor of North Dakota.
The oil-producing prairie currently lacks the infrastructure it needs to maximize its potential. To meet that challenge, the state of North Dakota and the private sector are investing hundreds of millions of dollars in Williston Basin infrastructure to stay ahead of the pace of development and to help get crude to the market at a quicker pace.
Hence, the 2011Bakken Summit is being held at the most opportune time and will bring together key decision makers from government, E&P companies, midstream and other infrastructure developers & operators and financial institutions who are making the next generation of Bakken infrastructure a reality. Some of these decision makers include TransCanada, Aux Sable, Enbridge,Kinder Morgan and Baker Hughes among other prestigious organizations.
Some of the Bakken's most lucrative investment opportunities remain untapped. Because of exponential drilling activity in the rural Williston Basin, there is a massive shortage of housing infrastructure for the increasing workforce. The 2011 Bakken Summit will feature real world experts including Eddie Arredondo, Maren Daley, Cyndi Stewart, Shawn Wenko and Brian Lash who will address the lack of housing for these workers and discuss how investors can take advantage of this investment opportunity.
