The Sunday Shale Show: Guest Butch Taylor, Business Manager, Local 396 Plumbers & Pipefitters
For The Sunday Shale Show this week, Energy in Depth – Ohio sat down with Mr. Butch Taylor, Business Manager of Local 396 Plumbers & Pipefitters.
Our guest was able to provide us with some background on Local 396, its operations, and the organizations history. More importantly Mr. Taylor took the time to discuss the current programs and training they have in place, some provided by grants, to provide the natural gas industry with enough downhill welders.
Prior to the announcement of V&M Star, we had 40% unemployment and from that point and over the last couple of years we have full employment, really a great and bright future. Butch Taylor, Local 396
As Mr. Taylor acknowledges, there is great potential in the future development of our state’s shale deposits, and its potential is recognized worldwide with more and more interest and investment coming in to the Buckeye State.
For this reason, Mr. Taylor and other organizations (like Energy in Depth) have placed a priority on educating the public about the industry, it’s practices, and the incredible benefits this continued development will bring for Ohio’s workforce and its communities.
Energy in Depth – Ohio thanks Mr. Taylor for their partnership and for joining us on The Sunday Shale Show. We look forward to continuing to work with leaders like Mr. Taylor and those working directly or indirectly with the oil and gas industry to provide in-depth analysis of what’s taking place in Ohio (and beyond), and what it means for our communities and our state.
Stay tuned for The Sunday Shale Show next week!
