Webinar Thursday To Spotlight Natural Gas Compressor Stations

From Potter County Today

compressor1Penn State Extension will sponsor a web-based seminar at 1 pm Thursday (Oct. 20)  that will examine natural gas compressor stations. The 75-minute session will feature a presentation by Glenn Wininger, project engineer with Englobal Engineering Inc. In the last few years, a pipeline system to transport gas from the thousands of wells drilled into the Marcellus Shale formation has expanded rapidly in states such as Pennsylvania. Wininger will cover the basics of gas compression, as well as air quality and noise concerns related to gas compression.


The webinar is part of a series of online workshops being held by Penn State Extension.. Information about how to register is available on the webinar page of Extension’s natural-gas website at http://extension.psu.edu/naturalgas/webinars. Those who plan to participate are advised to log on early, as the registration process can be time-consuming.


Previous webinars, publications and information on topics such as air pollution from gas development; the gas boom’s effect on landfills; water use and quality; zoning; gas-leasing considerations for landowners; implications for local communities; gas pipelines and right-of-way issues; and legal issues surrounding gas development also are available.


For more information about the webinar, contact John Turack at (724) 837-1402 or by email at jdt15@psu.edu.
