Pennsylvania’s maturing natural gas business is witnessing an evolution in focus from drilling expansion to pipeline construction.
Marcellus Shale drillers produced more than 2 trillion cubic feet of gas in the second half of 2014. As this bounty continues, new pipelines and associated compressor stations must be built to transport millions of cubic feet of natural gas per day to the nation’s major markets.
Three University of Scranton faculty and staff members will speak at the
Energypath 2015 conference, which will be held at The University of Scranton Thursday and Friday, July 23-24.
The conference, intended for policy makers, industry professionals, students, professors, and the general public, includes lectures and exhibits, in addition to a Keynote Dinner, a pre-conference energy camp for college students, and a science fair for middle and high school students.
GENSCAPE: Two major pipeline projects out of the Marcellus/Utica have recently announced an August 2015 in-service date. Both projects will support further increases in East production and should be supportive of basis prices in those producing areas. However, some of the price gains may be muted by expectations of weak downstream demand growth in markets targeted by the projects.
