Council, University Plan Marcellus Shale Conference for Pittsburgh

A major conference on the regulatory and policy issues surrounding Pennsylvania’s vast Marcellus shale gas formation will be held on May 3-4 in Pittsburgh.

The Pennsylvania Marcellus Shale Policy Conference will bring together all of the key constituents in the gas industry to help identify an effective regulatory framework that allows the gas development industry to prosper while still protecting the environmental and conservation values of communities throughout the state.

The conference is being sponsored by the Pennsylvania Environmental Council and Duquesne University.

This two-day forum is being held to bring together all who have a stake in the development of regulatory policy and decision-making in Marcellus shale gas production in Pennsylvania, including regulators, legislative leaders, industry officials, environmental organizations, the academic community, landowners and economic development agencies. The program will seek to identify the strategies and practices for the effective and sustainable development of this extraordinary resource.
