"I have been working in the natural gas sector since 1978. Over this time period, the gas industry has experienced regulatory changes and as an employee, you make changes required for your specific department with a limited understanding of why this change was necessary. I have recently attended a seminar offered by Phoenix Energy Marketing Consultants called "Introduction to Canadian Natural Gas Marketing". I would like to commend both Dave Maffitt and Trina Lingel on the sensational job they did in organizing and presenting this seminar. The numerous guest speakers were very informative and able to keep our attention on the topic at hand. We went on a field trip to a pipeline control room and then, to test our newly learned skills of marketing, each person participated in a role in a simulation of the gas production to market scenario. This seminar is great and anyone working in this field would benefit for the large variety of information offered throughout the three day session."
