Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) August 07, 2012
Infocast, the leading business intelligence and networking events producer in the oil and gas industry, is set to host the inaugural Black Gold Ohio Summit in Columbus, Ohio on September 12-13, 2012. With the rising potential of Utica shale in Ohio, the critical event is timely for a variety of stakeholders who aim to establish the "first mover" status in the field.
For the first time in a hundred years, Ohio finds itself in a position to once again be a major oil and gas producing State. Although the Marcellus play has reigned dominant and impacted recent economic development in Ohio, it is anticipated that the Utica shale will truly revitalize the O&G industry in the State as it covers significantly more of Ohio than the Marcellus and also contains much larger quantities of oil and NGLs.
The potential impact of the Utica play in Ohio is estimated to be a resounding 200,000+ jobs/$22 biollion State economic output game-changer. However, to support the resurgence of energy and economic development, much infrastructure will need to be developed and re-purposed. More steel mills, pipe-making, refinery expansion and gas processing and fractionation plants are needed, in addition to a dramatic increase of available workers and skilled engineers, surveyors and landsmen.
Infocast's Black Gold Ohio Summit will provide a unique, cutting-edge forum designed for E&P companies, midstream players, rail and trucking companies to industrial manufacturers, developers of loading and terminal infrastructure, and the financial investors and lenders who are making the necessary development of the Utica happen.
The Summit is also an exceptional opportunity for participants to make connections and network with a wide spectrum of the key players who will be the primary movers in this Ohio renaissance.
