Gas, Fracking and Pipelines 101

  • Appalachian South Folklife 820 Rocky Mount Rd Pipestem, West Virginia 25979 (map)

Join us to learn more about the types of shale gas that are under our land (Marcellus and Utica). We will also discuss modern drilling and extraction techniques as well as how gas is transported from production to market (pipelines). What will you do when the "landmen" arrive to try to lease your minerals? Do you know what "fracking" is? What is our WV legislature up to in this session? A light breakfast and delicious lunch will be provided by Oakwyn Farms.
