Lone Star D/E (Grand Hyatt San Antonio)
Shale gas developments are transforming petrochemical industry in US and opening up tremendous opportunities for growth, particularly US Gulf Coast. The size and number of these facilities and associated investments will also pose challenges due to lack of large scale investments in the region for almost two decades. Based on the announcements in public domain, the potential investment level for petrochemical industry will exceed forty billion in Gulf Coast region during 2013-2018 timeframe. This level of investment is unprecedented relative to any recent period of growth in the region. These large facilities are highly complex to plan, implement, operate, and maintain. As a follow-up to the Panel Discussions related to business side of Shale related developments in petrochemical industry in 2012 EPC, this session will focus on the execution challenges for large petrochemical facilities. Panel Members: Steve Dedman is senior vice president, Enterprise Strategic Development for Zachry. Steven M. Fisher is an Executive Director and senior analyst in the general industrials group of UBS Investment Research covering Engineering & Construction and Machinery companies. Mike Krenek is a Director with Deloitte Services LP and a member of Deloitte’s Global Chemicals Leadership Team. Dan Lumma is Senior Vice President for the Kiewit Energy Group. Georg Schneider is Site Director for Linde Engineering, Germany. W. Scott Wiseman leads CB&I’s Strategic Account management.
