Agriculture Energy Forum to Be Held

Want to better understand natural gas production on agriculture lands? Be sure to register for the Keystone Energy Forum’s “Agriculture Forum” on October 29th in Williamsport, Pa.

Held in partnership with the Professional Dairy Managers of Pennsylvania (PDMP) and PennAg Industries Association, the “Agricultural Forum” will focus on natural gas development and its interaction with Pennsylvania’s agricultural community.

The October forum will include two panel discussions focusing on natural gas activity in agricultural lands and cooperative discussions between both Agriculture and Natural Gas Industries. A luncheon will follow the panel discussions.

Recognizing the need to pre-emptively mitigate potential conflicts that may occur on farmland that is also being developed for natural gas exploration, the Keystone Energy Forum entered into an educational partnership with PDMP early in 2011 in an effort to expand each industry’s understanding of the other’s operational expectations and requirements.

Local energy operators will be joined on the panel by pipeline representatives, government regulators, conservationists and farmers to share current and future activities related to natural gas development and Pennsylvania’s agricultural lands.

While there is no cost to attend the forum or the luncheon, seating is limited so pre-registering for the forum and luncheon is encouraged. To register for this free forum, participants are asked to RSVP to PDMP at info@pdmp.org or by calling toll free 877-326-5993.
