Marcellus Shale Summit Seeks to Dispel Myths

At the end of March, oil and gas industry stakeholders will meet to discuss future development of Marcellus Shale.

According to many, the future of U.S. energy security may already exist thousands of feet below the surface of the Earth in the Marcellus Shale Play. Accessing it, however, has created media frenzy.

The Marcellus Shale Gas Environmental Summit, taking place on March 28-30 at the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel in Pittsburgh, Pa., is the key meeting for industry stakeholders in the oil and gas industry to drive the future development of the Marcellus Shale Play.

The White House noted recently that the development of shale gas is expected to significantly increase energy security and help reduce greenhouse gas pollution.

Because of a lack of understanding of the science of shale drilling, the public relations issues facing the industry are threatening to halt production. This event will bring together oil and gas companies, associations, environmental experts, and federal and state regulators to discuss the regulatory problems, PR issues, and the hard science and environmental responsibilities facing E&P and midstream operations, and responsible courses of action for further development.

The keynote presenter is John Centofanti, director of Safety and Environment, EQT Corporation.
