HOUSTON (November 21, 2014) – Scott Duncan, vice president of FMI Capital Advisors, Inc.,* served as the keynote speaker to more than 250 attendees of the Energy Construction Summit Nov. 18 in Houston. The event brought together energy experts, oil and gas producers, pipeline owners, petrochemical giants, and prospective LNG exporters to discuss the needs of emerging energy-related mega-projects.
“The shale revolution may be well under way, but the major boost it will provide to the engineering and construction sector is only beginning,” stated Duncan. “To make full use of the nation’s energy abundance, there is unprecedented need for the development and construction of new energy infrastructure. We believe the growth in the U.S. energy market provides an enormous opportunity for the construction industry.”
Co-author of the FMI white paper “Skills Shortages in a Booming Market: The Big Oil and Gas Challenge,” Duncan has provided mergers and acquisitions, ownership transfer, and strategic advisory services for engineering and construction firms operating in energy and industrial markets. Prior to joining FMI, he managed corporate strategy, acquisitions and divestments for Lafarge SA’s business development group in the U.S. He has also prepared equity research on oil and gas exploration and production companies for a national investment firm.
