Manitoba to Montana: Business Opportunities in the Bakken

Join us for a one-day conference presented in partnership with the Montana World Trade Centre, World Trade Centre Winnipeg and the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce.

Date:                Wednesday, February 26th, 2014
Time:               8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location:         Keystone Centre, Brandon, Manitoba

The Bakken is the vast oil-producing region spanning Montana, North Dakota, Saskatchewan and southwestern Manitoba. The rapid oil and gas sector development in this region creates significant opportunities for Manitoba companies to support the ongoing infrastructure and resource needs of oil companies, workers, and local communities.

This conference will highlight business opportunities in the oil sector in Manitoba and deliver a “how to” seminar designed to help Manitoba companies access opportunities in the USA (North Dakota and Montana).

Confirmed panellists include:

  • Dan MacLean, CEO & President of Tundra Oil & Gas Ltd.
  • Arnie Sherman, Executive Director of the Montana World Trade Centre
  • Former Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer (via satellite link)
  • Mark Salkeld, President & CEO of Petroleum Services Association of Canada
  • More to come…
