Event Details

Exclusive Intelligence

Tapping opportunity in the Bakken is a one-day “how- to” seminar designed specifically to help Utah companies launch successful business efforts in the region. As a participant, you can expect a depth of actionable intel you won’t find at any other Bakken conference or workshop. Utah businesses will be the first to hear the results of a just-released report that explores the major needs and opportunities to do business in the Bakken region.

According to Arnie Sherman, President of Global Development Services and Executive Director of the Montana World Trade Center, “It’s hard to imagine the scale of what is happening in the Bakken. There are shortages of everything from housing and waste disposal to vehicle repair, and infrastructure equipment. We see opportunities for Utah businesses in sectors like construction, engineering, environmental remediation, finance, hospitality, transportation, water services and more. And we think that some smaller companies could look at banding together to meet the needs in both Montana and North Dakota.”

Mr. Sherman and Ed Wetherbee, Managing Director of the Northern Rockies Regional Center, of Montana, and former President of Colorado Energy Management in Boulder, discuss the current status of the Bakken oil field, needs created by the boom, the challenges of doing business in the region and what lies ahead. Eric Peterson, a seasoned Bakken project development professional and President of Bakken Consulting will discuss the ins and outs of successfully doing business in the Bakken.
