HOUSTON, Feb. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- John Pinkerton, Chairman and CEO of Range Resources, and Frank Semple, Chairman, President and CEO of MarkWest, will open the afternoon session of Hart Energy's 2nd annual Marcellus Midstream conference and workshop. Both men will engage in a "fireside chat" with Midstream Business Editor Jeanne Stell on Tuesday, March 22, at the David A. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA.
The two corporate leaders will share their perspectives on balancing expansion timing and finance requirements. Since their respective organizations are leading players in the Marcellus shale boom underway in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, both are well-qualified to address these strategies. Just-in-time gathering and transmission lines are essential for profitability amidst growing demand for midstream infrastructure driven by the recent expansion of U.S. shale-gas development.
The Marcellus Midstream conference and workshop opens with two technical workshop tracks on Monday, March 21, and continues with an executive conference and exhibition on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 22-23. Last year, more than 8,000 professionals attended Hart Energy's inaugural (and sold-out) Marcellus Midstream conference and the four related events in its Developing Unconventional Gas (DUG™) conference series.
