Lisa Kindler and Paul Cramer of the Ohio Valley Oil & Gas Association said the show was a great opportunity to catch up with members and network with industry professionals.
The Ohio Valley Regional Oil & Gas Expo was held April 24 and 25 in St. Clairsville, Ohio, at the James E. Carnes Center in Belmont County.
Hosted by the Belmont County Commissioners and the Belmont County Port Authority for the seventh year, the expo marked the largest turnout in the event's history. With more than 100 exhibitors, the 2018 Ohio Valley Regional Oil & Gas Expo sold out of exhibit space and attracted a steady stream of oil and gas industry professionals.
The event opened with a Network Night Reception on April 24, followed by a day-long trade show exhibition featuring table top and outdoor equipment displays that showcased the latest equipment and services geared toward the region's rich Marcellus and Utica Shale oil and gas industry.
Event speakers included:
- Jackie Stewart, managing director, strategic communications segment of FTI Consulting and field director of Energy In Depth;
- Brian Teller, Appalachia operations manager, XTO Energy; and
- Brian Anderson, Ph.D., director of WVU Energy Institute and Verl O. Purdy chair of engineering in chemical engineering.
