Annual Tsuan Hua Feng Lecture
Collaborative Efforts,
Current Issues and Research
Priorities in Unconventional
Gas Development
Dr. Jared Cohon
The exploitation of unconventional gas and oil
supplies using the technique of hydraulic fracturing
has had a very significant impact on US energy supply
and use with major economic and environmental
implications. Western Pennsylvania is at the heart
of the production of natural gas from the Marcellus
Shale formation. The region has also seen the
emergence of unique, collaborative efforts by industry
and environmental groups to control the impacts
of shale gas development and to improve the fracking
process. These efforts will be examined, and current
issues and research priorities will be discussed.

Held at the Cape Cod Lounge Student Union.
