Monthly Shale Webinar Series on “Analyzing the Options for Monetizing the Shale Gas Resource” November 15th
Posted: November 11, 2012
The news regularly reports stories of new shale gas basins, increased gas estimates, or higher production yields. With the increase in supply, what is the demand for natural gas use? Penn State Extension’s Shale webinar “Analyzing the Options for Monetizing the Shale Gas Resource” with Uday Turaga, Founder and CEO of ADI Analytics LLC, provides insight to this question.
The educational webinar will run from 1:00 to 2:00 PM on Thursday, November 15th. Uday Turaga will provide an overview of natural gas production and demand. Turaga will then discuss research conducted by ADI Analytics (www.adi-analytics.com), looking at current and future uses of natural gas and options for utilization, conversion and monetization of this resource.
Uday Turaga, a recognized thought leader in the energy and chemical industry, is a frequent speaker on energy issues at conferences and events globally. Turaga states, "Shale gas supply is growing rapidly and will significantly impact both the North America and the global energy industry. In addition to being used for power, chemicals, and vehicles, shale gas could position North America as a major supplier of LNG in a world that wants more of it. Such development would, collectively, stabilize Henry Hub natural gas prices and incentivize continued investments in shale gas and other unconventional resources."
Presented by Penn State Extension's Marcellus Education Team, all of the monthly webinars will be offered from 1-2 p.m. on Thursdays. Upcoming planned topics include:
December 20 Shale Energy and Water Impacts: A Review of Recently Published Research, Dave Yoxtheimer, Penn State MCOR
January 17 America’s New Industrial Revolution: A Renaissance for US Chemical Manufacturing, Dan Borne, LA Chemical Association
February 21 The Science Behind Best Management Practices, Nels Johnson, The Nature Conservancy
