DEP Secretary To Kick Off Oil & Gas Conference And Trade Show August 31

Department of Environmental Protection Secretary John Hanger will serve as the lead-off speaker for the meeting portion of the August 31-September 1 Eastern Oil & Gas Conference and Trade Show at the Monroeville Convention Center.
Produced by the Pennsylvania Independent Oil & Gas Association, the industry-oriented event includes a day-and-a-half of conference programming as well as the only full-scale oil and gas trade show in the Eastern U.S. Monroeville is located 15 miles east of Pittsburgh.
With the tremendous interest in development of the Marcellus Shale natural gas play, DEP has been at the forefront of regulatory initiatives affecting Marcellus operators and other oil and gas companies working in Pennsylvania. Stricter wastewater-treatment and well-construction requirements are two of the regulatory initiatives being finalized by DEP.
Other speakers and presentations include:
-- An update on water-related regulations by Burt Waite of Moody & Associates, Inc. and Paul Hart, Hart Resource Technologies;
-- Developments at the Public Utility Commission affecting both Marcellus and conventional gas producers by Kevin Moody, Eckert, Seamans, Cherin & Mellott, LLC;
-- Well control and risk management by Sam Bowden, Wild Well Control;
-- A panel discussion on pipeline issues, including the effects of gas from the Rocky Mountain region and the Marcellus Shale on the region’s pipeline systems;
-- Project permitting in an era of increased activism by Kyle Parker, Crowell & Moring, LLP; and
-- Marcellus deal activity and entry strategies by Stephen Bull, Statoil ASA.
The sold-out trade show will feature 275 exhibitors displaying cutting-edge products and services of interest to companies drilling for and producing Marcellus Shale gas as well as conventional sources of crude oil and natural gas.
While many of the exhibiting companies are based in Pennsylvania and neighboring states, some come from as far away as Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado and Alberta, Canada. The list of exhibitors is available via the conference webpage.
The conference schedule gives conference participants plenty of time to visit the exhibit area, including an exclusive Show Preview Reception the evening of August 30.
More details about the Eastern Oil & Gas Conference and Trade Show can be found online. The conference registration deadline is August 23. The trade show also is open to the general public for a fee at the door.
