Shale gas producers have grown serious about developing more markets for natural gas. American Natural Gas Association (ANGA) NGV committee chairman Taylor Shinn, who is also senior director of corporate development for Chesapeake Energy, explained the potential for natural gas to fuel shale gas drilling sites. According to him, rigs consume between 700 and 1,200 gallons of diesel daily, representing a load of 135 MMBtu per day or about 45 million cubic feet per year. As of April 1, 2011, some 1,891 rigs were drilling for gas in the United States, according to Baker Hughes data. Another 877 were drilling for oil.

This seminar will examine the push for gas-fueled drilling sites with particular emphasis on LNG. The program will include shale gas producers, drillers and other oilfield services firms, and technologists that specialize in converting drilling sites to compressed natural gas and LNG.
