SBB Forum: Oilpatch Tubulars

Join us October 20 in Houston, Texas, for a closer look at the Gulf coast steel industry and unmatched networking opportunities. Steel Business Briefing’s Oilpatch Tubulars Forum brings together steel executives and their customers in the energy industry to discuss the challenges and opportunities present in the Gulf region. Industry professionals will explore the state of steel in the Gulf with regard to pricing and capacity, while executives from the oil and gas industry will give delegates a look at their future tubular needs.


Houston, recognized worldwide for its energy industry, is also home to one of the largest steel-handling ports in the country. With such a concentration of major players from different industries in one area, this forum will provide you with the opportunity to network with top class attendees and exchange ideas and information with your peers. 


This meeting is part of a series of half-day regional forums SBB is hosting across the country, providing a platform for discussing issues and events impacting key steel markets throughout the United States as well as networking with top industry professionals during the day and at a reception.
