EID in Barnett Country for U.S.-China Oil and Gas Industry Forum
They say ya gotta to where the action is, right? Well, this week that action is in Fort Worth, Texas, host-city to the Tenth U.S.-China Oil and Gas Industry Forum (OGIF). For those not familiar with the OGIF, it’s a public-private partnership designed to facilitate dialogue around the development of oil and gas resources in both the United States and China. Topics of discussion this year? Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), deepwater development and of course, unconventional oil and natural gas technology and development.
EID has set up shop, brought along a few issue alerts, fact sheets and other educational materials to distribute along with a laptop and monitor to allow folks to access www.kbcsandbox7.com/eid, see our work, view a video or two and signup to receive our mailings.
The conference kicked off yesterday with a tour of a few Chesapeake Energy facilities in the area – EID had an opportunity to tag along and tour an urban drilling site, compressor station and salt water treatment facility.
This afternoon we’ll hear from U.S./Chinese government and industry officials on shale gas; we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
