PIOGA to host Eastern Oil & Gas Conference and Trade Show

MONROEVILLE, PA - The 2015 Pennsylvania Independent Oil & Gas Association’s Eastern Oil & Gas Conference and Trade Show will explore the question, “Where Are We, Where Are We Going?” with a lineup of speakers who will offer their perspectives on the current state of the industry and their expectations for the future as the Northeast’s shale plays continue to have a tremendous impact on the energy market.

The event will be Oct. 27 - 28 at the Monroeville Convention Center, and features a day-and-a-half conference, a two-day trade show and networking events.

“Our industry is in a painful state of flux, pressured by persistent low product prices and new government-imposed costs, while looking for relief in the form of pipeline expansions and other new market opportunities for our abundant natural gas,” commented Louis D. D’Amico, the trade association’s President and Executive Director. “We expect our program will offer unique insights into how and when things will turn around, as well as strategies companies can employ to get them through these tough times.”

Among the conference presentations are: Addresses by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf and State House Speaker Mike Turzai, a natural Gas Production Company Executives’ Panel, headlined by top officials from Enervest and CNX and Dr. Bernard Weinstein of SMU’s Macguire Energy Institute on the benefits of oil and gas in Pennsylvania.

Trade show hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, October 27, and 9 .m. to 3 p.m. on October 28th, leaving plenty of time to conferees to visit the show floor. Conference registrants can also participate in Monday evening’s exhibitor appreciation reception, along with a networking reception at the close of Tuesday’s program, followed by a Halloween-themed mixer. .
