What we're looking for
Midstream topics (gas processing, gas gathering, fractionation, storage and transportation) that are relevant, timely and informative, relating, but not limited, to these activities:

What we aren't looking for
The primary focus of the GPA Midstream Convention is sharing knowledge and best practices to benefit the midstream industry as a whole. With that in mind, we are not looking for overly commercial papers with regard to a specific company or service. We receive some great abstracts every year that contain valuable information but aren't selected because they are too commercial.

How topics/papers are selected
As abstracts come in, members of the GPA Midstream Program Committee review each one and select the most appropriate and relevant papers for each convention session. GPA Midstream Program Committee members represent more than 70 different midstream industry companies that face the same challenges and opportunities that you do.

How to be considered
All authors who send a 200-250 word abstract to GPA Midstream by Oct. 22 will be considered as a potential presenter at the 2018 GPA Midstream Convention. Abstracts submitted early will be given priority consideration. Please submit your abstract using our online form.
