America’s energy security was forever changed nearly a decade ago, as domestic shale development positively shifted America’s energy outlook. As a recent Harvard Business School study concluded, responsible shale development is “perhaps the single largest opportunity to improve the trajectory of the U.S. economy ” published 2015. (http://marcelluscoalition.org/2015/06/harvard-study-shale-the-single-largest-opportunity-to-improve-trajectory-of-u-s-economy/. This transformation – due in large part to the industry’s ongoing ingenuity and innovation across the Appalachian Basin – continues to deliver significant economic, environmental and national security benefits.
With the Appalachian Basin positioned as the centerpiece of the domestic energy revolution, it only makes sense that the Marcellus Shale Coalition (MSC), the Ohio Oil and Gas Association (OOGA), and the West Virginia Oil and Natural Gas Association (WVONGA) partner for this year’s SHALE INSIGHTTM conference on Sept. 21-22 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh.
While shale development is still in its early stages, much opportunity remains if we get the energy equation right. Access and demand for natural gas – as well as natural gas liquids – will be critical in positioning the Appalachian Basin for continued activity and job-creating investment. Expanding these end use opportunities requires continued modernization and expansion of our natural gas infrastructure network to safely connect more consumers with the energy they need to improve our lives and the environment.
With continuous progress as well as challenges facing our industry, SHALE INSIGHT™ 2016 offers an opportunity to collaborate with decision-makers on best-practices that will ensure the sustained safety and focused development of Appalachian Basin resources.
