Energy Expert Mary Barcella to Speak at 2012 NORA Mid-Year Meeting
Focus will be on outlook for North American natural gas market and how it will compare to crude oil/lubricants sector

Haymarket, Virginia (April 23) – Mary Barcella, IHS CERA Director of North American Natural Gas, will address NORA members at the 2012 NORA Mid-Year Meeting on June 21 in Baltimore, Maryland.

Two primary markets for used oil collected by NORA members are generally the recycled fuel oil and re-refining markets. This presentation will highlight the short, medium and long term outlook for the natural gas and crude oil/lubricants sector, which will directly impact members of the association.

"We are delighted to have Mary Barcella address the NORA Mid-Year Meeting on a topic of extreme interest to all NORA members,” said Scott D. Parker, NORA Executive Director. "All attendees will leave this event with a clear understanding of what North America’s energy future will look like and how it will likely impact the members of NORA. The association is fortunate to have this session provided by one of the nation’s leading energy experts.”

Barcella, who holds a BA magna cum laude from Vanderbilt University and an MA and PhD in economics from the University of Maryland, has over 30 years of experience in the energy market, policy, regulatory, investment, and geopolitical analysis, as well as macroeconomic forecasting. She follows the North American natural gas markets, focusing on long term outlooks, pricing, economics and policy.

IHS acquired NORA member Purvin & Gertz, a consulting firm that provides advice to clients in the petroleum refining, natural gas/LPG, petrochemical, lubricants and base oil industries, in November 2011.

The 2012 NORA Mid-Year Meeting will be held June 20-22, 2012 at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland. Over 160 industry leaders will gather for networking and education related to issues about responsibly recycling used oil and related materials.
