Program On Natural Gas Hydrofracturing, Other Topics Tonight

Potter County Today
The public is welcome to attend the next meeting of the Potter County Natural Gas Task Force, to be held at 7 pm Tuesday, Sept. 14, at the Gunzburger Building in Coudersport.

A representative from Schlumberger, the world’s largest oilfield/gasfield services company, will present the main program. He’ll discuss the specifics of Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling, including hydrofracturing, and job opportunities in the industry.

A good turnout of interested citizens is expected. Among other topics on the agenda:

  • A report from Mary Jo Shaub (E-Commerce Association) on ways that expanded broadband service will benefit the gas industry and other business users;
  • A report on recruitment/training of volunteer Coldwater Conservation Corps water quality monitors;
  • Information on wellsite emergency training sessions scheduled for local responders.
  • Details on the upcoming Potter County appearance by the Mobile Energy Education Training Unit (MEET-U), a drilling industry education trailer.

The county’s website has a wealth of information about the gas industry. It’s available here (click on Marcellus Shale/Natural Gas tab).
