With the maturation of the Marcellus and Utica, the Appalachian Basin has become the host of a variety of projects that are changing the landscape of the natural gas and manufacturing industries. From power plants and power generation to storage hubs and pipeline infrastructure, a number of projects are being developed across the states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Hear from leaders on those projects about the opportunities that these present for investment and the future of the industry.

2:00 pm Investment Opportunities and Needs    

Many large scale projects need financial backers to turn concepts to reality. With this session we will explore what opportunities the Marcellus and Utica Basins have to offer investors and where needs and partnerships can meet in the middle. Hear from leaders about large scale natural gas projects, how those investments have transformed the landscape, and what is being done to encourage further development.
