  • We recently held our annual end of year Shale Update. I believe this was our best Shale Forum to date, with a panel that included:
    • Mike Moore - CEO and President of Gulfport Energy
    • Rick Simmers - Division of Oil and Gas Section Chief at ODNR
    • Senator Troy Balderson - Member of the Ohio Senate and Chair of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee
    • Don Templin - President of MPLX and Executive Vice President of Marathon Petroleum
    • Andrew Doehrel - CEO and President of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce
    A highlight of the forum for me was Andy Doehrel’s opening remarks. In less than four minutes, he does a great job of tracing the history of Oil and Gas in Ohio and finishes with a quick description of the magnitude of the current shale revolution. You can view the entire Energy Forum “Shale Update: 2016 Analysis | 2017 Forecast” on our website here.

    The oil and gas industry ended 2016 on a high note, 2017 looks to build on that momentum. I look forward to sharing more good news with you.
