POWER-GEN Natural Gas: Unconventional Gas Powering Our Future
Columbus Convention Center
400 North High Street
Columbus, OH 43215
“POWER-GEN Natural Gas,” a conference and exhibition targeting gas-fired power generation related to the development of natural gas reserves in the Marcellus and Utica shale plays, will be held August 18-20 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio.
The event, owned and produced by Tulsa, Okla.-based PennWell Corp., will be presented by industry experts at Oil & Gas Journal, Unconventional Oil & Gas Report and Power Engineering. Bricker & Eckler LLP is a conference sponsor.
Event organizers say the conference’s location in Ohio emphasizes the potential impact of the Appalachian region’s unconventional natural gas plays on the energy market regionally, nationally and globally. Experts predict the Marcellus shale play could rank as the biggest natural gas field in the world, while the impact of Ohio's Utica shale play is just beginning to be felt as energy companies test its vast potential.
Industry experts will discuss issues surrounding technology, operation, construction and maintenance of gas-fired power and production from unconventional hydrocarbon resources such as those in the Marcellus and Utica shale regions. Speakers include:
- Terry Boston, President and CEO, PJM Interconnection
- Mark McCullough, Executive Vice President, Generation AEP
- Peter Fasullo, Principal and Owner, En Vantage
- Chris Akers, COO, Eureka Hunter Pipeline LLC
The event will also examine a rapidly evolving environment where discussion now centers on the growth of U.S. oil and natural gas production and probability of North American energy independence.
In addition, the conference will highlight several transformative events underway in the Appalachia basin, including the oil and gas industry’s pro-active efforts to negotiate a complex social and multi-state regulatory environment.
