ShaleNavigator is a silver level sponsor and exhibitor of the conference, held in Canonsburg, PA on October 14-15, 2015.

Geospatial Corporation’s ShaleNavigator will be a sponsor and an exhibitor at the 2014 Penn State Natural Gas Utilization Conference in Canonsburg, PA on October 14-15, 2014.

As a silver level sponsor of the event, ShaleNavigator and Geospatial will have the opportunity to share their GIS solutions for the booming natural gas industry. The Gas Utilization Conference aims to foster a better understanding of the issues that remain a challenge to natural gas development, and how shale plays affect the greater global energy market.

Top industry experts, government officials, and academic researchers will present and share what they believe the top issues are facing natural gas development in the United States. This year’s conference focuses on the growth and potential for opportunity in the Appalachian Basin, a region ShaleNavigator has been focused on for years.

"The conference provides valuable educational and networking opportunities aligned with industry leaders, engineers, and energy company executives,” said Ed Camp, ShaleNavigator’s founder who will be a team lead at Geospatial Corporation. “The silver level sponsorship will provide the ShaleNavigator and Geospatial team an opportunity to introduce ShaleNavigator as a one of a kind resource to these critical decision makers."

Geospatial will be acquiring ShaleNavigator in the coming weeks to add to its extensive stock of GIS mapping software. ShaleNavigator’s SaaS platform specializes in the mapping and reporting of information specific to the leasing and development of shale plays in the United States, with a focus on Marcellus and Utica shale.

America’s Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA), the platinum sponsor of the event, works with North America’s leading gas exploration and production companies to promote the demand and availability of natural gas resources. By working with industry, government and customer stakeholders, ANGA works to promote a cleaner and more secure energy future.

The event is also being presented in part by the Penn State Marcellus Center for Outreach & Research and the Shale Gas Innovation and Commercialization Center.

Penn State’s MCOR serves state agencies, elected and appointed officials, communities, landowners, industry, environmental groups and other stakeholder through education and research initiatives on unconventional gas plays.

SGICC’s mission is to engage and collaborate with a wide range of partners to expedite technology breakthroughs related to Shale Gas resources in Pennsylvania. Each year, they hold a Shale Gas Innovation Contest to recognize businesses, entrepreneurs, and researchers that are working towards improving the environmental, health and safety of shale gas workers and communities.
