Leadership Wyoming, a program offered by the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce, included a “Natural Gas Day” this year focused on what it does for the area.
“Natural Gas Day” for the Leadership Wyoming team was punctuated by tours to three active sites in nearby Susquehanna County and presentations by leaders in the natural gas industry. Group members donned hardhats and overalls to get a closeup look at a drilling rig and heard a firsthand account from a UGI official, just a day after a million dollar grant was awarded to the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce to facilitate the company in bringing natural gas service to Tunkhannock.
Southwestern Energy and Tioga Environmental Consulting, LLC sponsored the day’s events. SWN’s Michael Narcavage, Bill desRosiers of Cabot Oil & Gas, and Mike Atchie of Williams oversaw the tours. The hands-on summary of what is involved in getting natural gas from the Marcellus shale and processing the raw material for the open market was capped off by a presentation from UGI Penn Natural Gas director of business development Don Brominski, who detailed the complexity of making the product available to new customers.
