Posted: September 9, 2012
This year’s Penn State Extension Marcellus Summit 2012, scheduled for October 10-12 at the Penn State Conference Center, offers a great lineup of speakers and panels, covering topics such as Shale Gas Resource Estimates, studies on US gas exports, and international perspectives on shale gas and oil development. Special panels will be held throughout the conference as well as environmental, legal and technical break out sections. The Conference anticipates over 400 attendees such as county and municipal officials, industry representatives, legislators, attorneys, state and federal agency staff, environmental and community group members and those interested in the wide range of opportunities and challenges arising from natural gas development.
As part of the conference, an applied research poster session will be held on the 11th from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. The deadline for submissions is September 21, 2012. Poster abstracts will be reviewed for relevance to the audience and should be broadly related to shale issues relating to community and social implications; business, workforce, and economic impacts; environmental impacts; natural gas utilization; or public education. Additional information on the poster session can be found on the Marcellus Summit website.
