Why You Should Attend

2nd Natural Gas Plant Siting, Commissioning & Construction

Environmental regulations, age, and most importantly inexpensive and available natural gas are leading to an increase in the amount of gas fired generation in North America. Power producers are increasingly relying on gas fired generation plants and units to support base load requirements and peak requirements. As a result this event will focus on strategies and solutions to expediting the process of developing, siting, regulatory approval for, and construction of gas fired power plants.


The marcus evans 2nd Natural Gas Plant Siting, Commissioning and Construction conference is a highly-intensive, two day forum that will focus entirely on the development, construction of, and conversion to natural gas fired plants. Attendees will discover innovative strategies to overcome the development of old and new gas plants and will cover some of the plants biggest challenges when it comes to working with Federal, State and local regulations, third-party contractors, and advanced technology. Benefit from single-track case study presentations, networking opportunities and Q&A time with top Utility, Power Generating, and EPC firms. Attendees will be afforded with a unique opportunity to interact with speakers and their peers in a classroom-style setting that will encourage audience engagement and involvement.
