North American Power Roundtable

Boston, MA
CERA is pleased to announce the upcoming North American Power Roundtable to be held at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Boston, MA on October 26, 2006. EVENT TOPICS Coal-Gas Competition. Despite heat waves this past summer, gas prices have declined sharply recently. Will declining gas prices affect near-term power generation dispatch? How will coal-gas competition affect coal and gas markets? Will changing fuel prices affect technology choices for new power plants? Power Market Balance. Reserve margins are shrinking, but there is not enough new power plant development in some regions. Are power market prices sending signals to build new plants? What are the new resource adequacy rules and practices? Will new supply arrive in time to meet growing demand? Will changing relative fuel prices add another layer of supply uncertainty? Environmental Incrementalism. Over time, constraints on power plant emissions have been tightened to reduce emissions and broadened to include more pollutants, exerting a profound impact on the power business. A group of US Northeast states and California are moving forward with programs on carbon dioxide (CO2) restrictions. Is federal restriction on CO2 next? What are the drivers and signposts? What will be the likely timing and characteristics of a federal CO2 policy? Valuation of Assets and Companies. Power plant valuations have rebounded. Will valuations reach replacement costs and stimulate new supply? Will current enthusiasm for wires investments be sustained? What are the lessons learned from post-PUHCA mergers and acquisitions? Does earnings quality matter in the power business?

Event Details :  October 24 to October 26, 2006
DryTree & Riser Forum

College Station, Texas
The DryTree & Riser Forum (formerly known as the Deepwater DryTree Alternatives Forum) was created to facilitate the open exchange of ideas, best practices, and lessons learned that impact the selection and execution of deepwater drytree systems and drilling or production riser systems from floating facilities. This year's theme, "Innovation for Changing Demand," will present practical experiences relating to choices when choosing drytree production systems and deepwater riser systems. During this two-day event, speakers and delegates will explore the technology, tools, decision-making processes, and functional requirements of the concept selection and execution employing drytrees and various riser systems. Chairman Allen Allegra of ExxonMobil Development Corp. will lead a team of industry experts, service providers, and regulators participating in case-study and technology-oriented presentations. The forum addresses operational issues, challenges, and solutions associated with expanding global deepwater production operations. The exchange of knowledge represents experiences, applications, and current, real-world project examples. Through informative discussion and discourse, attendees will acquire valuable insight on how best to tackle some of the most complex issues associated when choosing drytree alternatives. Plan on joining us this year either through attending, sponsoring or exhibiting in this highly focused forum. The forum will address: Concept Selection Technical Challenges Materials & Fabrication Drilling & Completions Lessons Learned/Industry Changes Hurricane Effects/Issues Riser Choices/Selection
