|04/23/13 - Ohio's Natural Gas Boom: Origins, Challenges & Implications||
In September 2005, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the United States appeared to be on the precipice of a renewed energy crisis, this time in natural gas. As natural gas prices reached an all time high of $11 per million, analysts predicted that they could reach even higher. The expected crisis in natural gas did not materialize, however, new technologies have helped unlock the vast potential of America’s shale gas formations, increasing supplies, lowering prices, and creating the potential for dramatic changes in global energy.
In his presentation entitled “Ohio’s Natural Gas Boom: Origins, Challenges and Implications,” Chastko will examine the origins of what some have called the shale gas “revolution” and he’ll share some key points to help participants evaluate its economic, environmental, and social implications for Ohio. The two free lectures will be held at 12:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the Elson Hall Auditorium, on Tuesday, April 23. For more information contact event organizer, Maggie Goetz, at email@example.com.
