New Directions

Geographically, Texas may be the nation's second largest state. But when it comes to oil and gas activity, it is the undisputed upstream, midstream and downstream leader. With 280,000+ miles of crude oil and natural gas pipelines, the Lone Star State's extensive midstream network connects prolific plays like the Permian Basin and the Eagle Ford to the world’s largest complex of refineries along the Gulf Coast. This September, Hart Energy's MIDSTREAM Texas conference and exhibition gives you an in-depth look at midstream activity across the state.

Hear directly from 20+ senior-level executives and industry analysts in uniquely candid conference sessions. Discover strategies for staying competitive across the entire commodity cycle. And meet and network with hundreds of midstream professionals during the event's 9+ hours of dedicated networking sessions. Plus, hundreds of upstream and midstream exhibiting companies will showcase the latest products and technologies on the trade show floor.
