YPE Pittsburgh and Armstrong Search Associates have created a 12 part educational training series designed to inform new entrants, those wishing to enter into, and those whose business supports the Marcellus and Utica Shale industries about key industry issues. This series will provide participants with a foundational understanding, highlight cutting edge information, and provide exposure to skills necessary to thrive in the industry.
Topics covered will include lease negotiating, aspects of successful due diligence projects, the science of the play, and permitting issues in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. In addition, this series will cover the economics of the shale development, and investment opportunities.
As a participant in our series you will be exposed to instruction, advice, and interaction from top decision makers in all aspects of shale work from the rig to the pump and into the boardrooms. The goal of our efforts will be to provide an understanding of the entire shale play and the prominent members who are influencing it. The event series will include a look at production, pipelines, finance, and the role of the legal profession. The Energy Industry Educational Series will give not only skills but insights that will make your professionals more valuable to your firm.
Training seminars will be conducted locally every two months over a period of two years on a variety of topics. At each seminar each participant will receive a book containing the presentation materials on the topic covered. Continuing education credits will also be available. In addition to the value of the information provided, each training seminar is a valuable networking opportunity with an average expected attendance of 200 people from across the energy sector.
