Topic       "The Regional Outlook for NGLs and Petrochemical Projects” Gerry Goobie, Principal at Goobie Tulk Inc.
What is the future for Ethane, Propane & Butane Supply/Demand balances? How does US Competition square up vs Eastern Canada vs Western Canada and how will Petrochemical projects factor in? Can Canada better position itself to become a competitive player by capitalizing on excess propane and methane? Both Canada and the US conclude that exports are required to keep their NGL markets balanced - what strategies can Canadian companies employ?
