Mr. Gregg Scott, President of Scott Land & Lease Ltd. attended the East Coast Energy Conference in New York on March 13 - 15, 2013. Cohosted by FirstEnergy and Societe Generale this event featured a wide spectrum of companies within the energy industry.
The conference included forty-two presenters from the strongest and most dynamic Canadian based companies operating in the global energy sector, many of which are clients of Scott Land & Lease Ltd.
Gregg Scott commented, “It was very informative to see our clients’ results from the past year especially given that much of the land on their power point slides was acquired by Scott Land on their behalf. It was also interesting to see their plans for the future and how those plans dovetail with our service centers across the West!”
