Shale Webinar to Address Recent Pipeline Developments

Shale Gas production eclipsed 4 trillion cubic feet in Pennsylvania in 2014, and reports of pipeline projects – to move this production to market. So how much pipeline infrastructure is needed? And what is the status of these projects?

Dave Messersmith, Penn State Extension Educator and Marcellus Education Team member, will shed light on these projects in this month’s Shale Webinar.

“There has been a tremendous amount of pipeline development occurring in and around Pennsylvania in recent years”, stated Messersmith. “We anticipate this trend will continue into the foreseeable future.”

“Recent Pipeline Developments” will be held Thursday from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. The Penn State Shale webinars are free, but registration is necessary.

All can go to the Penn State Extension Natural Gas Events page to register and to find out more information for each upcoming webinar.  For more information, contact Carol Loveland at 570-320-4429 or by e-mail at
