Shale Gas Production Gathers Speed: What You Need to Know About Pending Air and Water Regulations, Pipeline Safety and the Management of Stakeholder Issues

October 04, 2011

The Westin Oaks Houston, TX

Regulation of shale gas production is moving quickly.  EPA has proposed new air regulations that, if adopted, will directly affect infrastructure requirements for the production of shale gas.  Water use and disposal remain volatile issues.  The U.S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration is considering expanding its authority over gathering infrastructure.  Knowing the regulatory landscape and how to manage stakeholder issues is essential to understanding the future of shale gas production.

Join us for an in-depth discussion of how new air, water and pipeline safety regulations will affect the hydraulic fracturing industry. The keynote speaker, former Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection John Hanger, has years of experience as a regulator working with industry in the Marcellus Shale and will share what he believes the industry is doing right and what it is doing wrong. The conference also will address stakeholder management issues and feature a panel of "boots on the ground" industry participants who can share their thoughts on the practical consequences of regulatory initiatives. This conference offers an intimate forum for management-level decision makers to exchange information and ideas, learn from industry experts, and connect with colleagues.  Click here to view the proposed agenda.
