Our team recently attended a series of forums dedicated to our main development area - oil and gas industry.
A landmark event – the mid-continent LDC gas forum – took place September 9-11, where more than 350 gas industry leaders gathered in Chicago to network, analyze information, and make deals.

Our Experience and General Impressions
CEO of our company, Sergey Guzenko, and Managing Manager, Evgeniy Patalyak, have visited the LDC gas forum: mid-continent (September 9-11). They were delighted with the competence of the speakers and the relevance of their materials – in particular, the topics for their reports fully met current challenges and trends in the energy industry.
Discussions and questions among forum participants were also productive and informative. And, of course, they noted excellent networking opportunities – all participants had enough time for informal communication and contact sharing at properly organized networking sessions.
Overall, this event provided our company with many new ideas and inspired us to further develop in the energy sector. That is why we now highly recommend these LDC gas forums to our colleagues and plan to participate in them next year.
