As part of the SHALE INSIGHT™ 2019 Conference, the MSC Research Collaborative will host the annual Technology Showcase on October 24, 2019 from 9:00 am – 10:45 am which provides suppliers of emerging technologies an opportunity to introduce their innovations to the natural gas producer, midstream/pipeline, downstream and service communities.

This year we are pleased to announce that Department of Energy Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy (FE), Steven Winberg will be the Keynote Speaker for the Showcase. As Assistant Secretary, Steve Winberg is responsible for the management and oversight of FE’s research and development program, encompassing coal, oil, and natural gas, as well as the Office of Petroleum Reserves. He is also the founding Chair of the MSC’s Research Collaborative.

The Research Collaborative is seeking applications from technology providers interested in presenting their field test-ready innovations to oil and gas industry stakeholders. Technologies beneficial to natural gas exploration, production, midstream, service and utilization areas should be ready for pilot testing, slip stream or full-scale demonstration in the Marcellus and Utica shales.

In a format similar to that of a venture capital fair, selected suppliers will be asked to deliver a brief presentation followed by a 2-minute Q&A session. Up to ten applicants will be selected to present at the Technology Showcase. Several technologies that were presented in the last three years have led to established industrial partnerships.
