Yesterday was set up day for the WV oil and gas expo which is the Marcellus Shale expo in WV. All the booths have been sold and there was a last minute surge from companies to get a booth which indicates the importance of this event to companies working on well sites and pipelines.
Based on the exhibitor networking reception last night, there is considerable buzz about drilling and midstream activity in WV. It’s tough to get data on drilling and midstream activity in WV so this event will be a good source of fact and “rumor” information.
EQT is the only E&P Company with booth at the expo. It will be interesting to see if any other E&P and midstream companies will be walking the aisles.
