Shale Gas Network Forum to be held March 22: Role of Natural Gas in Domestic Energy Production and Use

Morgantown, W.Va. — Technologies to upgrade natural gas even at the well are being researched at U.S. universities to advance U.S. shale gas, a sector that is playing an increasingly important role in domestic, clean energy production and use. Shale gas upgrading and use are the featured topics of the spring Shale Gas Network Forum March 22 at 3 p.m. at the Erickson Alumni Center. Speakers include University of Pittsburgh professor and associate director of Pitt’s Center for Energy, Götz Veser, and WVU professor of law Joshua Fershee, a member of the Center for Innovation in Gas Research and Utilization. Veser plays a central role representing universities in a larger proposal by the AIChE to create the natural gas Rapid Advancement in Process Intensification Deployment Manufacturing Institute under the U.S. DOE National Network for Manufacturing Innovation. CIGRU is among the collaborators. A networking session will follow the formal comments. See details and RSVP
