Appalachian Basin

Shale Insight, The Natural Gas Answer All!

The Marcellus Shale Coalition is sponsoring an event September 25-26 in Philadelphia, Pa.  The event is called “Shale Insight” and it will provide the opportunity for you to learn pretty much anything about natural gas development.  If you have the two days free it will certainly be worth attending! 

The upcoming “Shale Insight” conference has three main goals: Provide attendees with more information about the industry; to encourage those who support natural gas to contact the legislature; and to provide a forum for attendees to hear from experts in the oil and gas field.

A forum such as this is just what the doctor ordered for landowners stressed out by the non-stop baseless attacks of a vocal ideological minority. The reality is that, as “Shale Insight” will show, natural gas development is one of the best job machines that rural America has going for it right now.

There will be a technology showcase at the event, which will be a series of presentations based on selected emerging technologies.  These will show how innovation creates value, reduces costs and generates competition throughout the Appalachian Basin Shale Industry.

There is a new addition to the conference this year, which will feature natural gas projects and research, and display the latest innovations.  There will be several different topics covered in the new addition, including but not limited to natural gas vehicles, commercial and industrial projects, power generation, and liquefied natural gas or LNG.

Another great aspect of the conference is the mobile app.  This will make it easy for people to access the conference and connect with others using their smartphones.  It will provide real-time information on everything from the sponsors, program details, speakers, exhibits, and more!

If your company has started using natural gas or is in the process of completing a project, Shale Insights could be a great opportunity for you to showcase your work during the poster session. Topics range from vehicles to power generation and everything in between. Please find more information here, and details are copied below for your convenience.
