Webinar Series: A Shale Open Forum with Penn State Extension

local-newsDuring this month’s Shale Webinar Session, the Penn State Marcellus Education Team will offer a Shale Open Forum.

Participants will join Jon Laughner, Dan Brockett, Matt Henderson and Dave Messersmith, as they open with current hot topics and then cover any questions from the public sent in by e-mail prior to the webinar. Questions during the webinar will also be fielded.

The July 18 webinar from 1p.m. to 2 p.m. will provide insight into new technology and science of industry and what it means for the landowner and public, Utica shale development, business and job growth trends and county production figures.  Are there questions you have on a particular topic you’d like to know more about?
