The natural-gas industry in the area, from its little-known past to its economically expansive future, will be discussed by two speakers during a Sept. 29 event at Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Madigan Library.
“Oil’s Stepchild: The Natural Gas Industry in Appalachia; A History from the First Discovery to the Maturity of the Industry,” will kick off the discussion, which is free and open to the public in the Library’s second-floor reading loft. The presentation will be offered by David A. Waples, author of “The Natural Gas Industry in Appalachia: A History From the First Discovery to the Maturity of the Industry.”
The second half of the program will feature Larry L. Michael, executive director of workforce and economic development for Penn College, who will share findings from the recent Marcellus Shale Workforce Needs Assessment.
A question-and-answer session will follow the event.
