Philadelphia Section - Hydraulic Fracturing Education Workshop
Date: Thursday, April 24, 2014
Location: Sandy Run Country Club, Oreland, PA
The dramatic growth in hydraulic fracturing or fracking has led to great interest in learning more about this process in general and the lubrication challenges faced by this industry in particular.
The education course is highlighted by a presentation from David Yoxtheimer PG, from the Penn State Marcellus Center for Outreach and Research. Yoxtheimer’s talk is entitled, “Trends in Shale Energy Development and Utilization.” Other speakers include Dave Archacki of Shrieve Chemical Products, Inc. whose talk is entitled, “Guar Gum and Emulsion Polymers and their use in Hydraulic Fracturing Fluids,” and Rob Ferguson of French Creek Software Inc.
This education course will help attendees gain a better understanding of the fracking process, the types of components used in fracking fluids and the opportunities for the lubricant industry to participate in this growing industry.
