President Trump To Deliver Keynote Address At Shale Insight Conference Today
President Donald J. Trump is in Pittsburgh, PA today to speak to the region’s natural gas industry.
President Trump will be the keynote speaker at the annual Shale Insight conference of the Marcellus Shale Coalition, the Ohio Oil & Gas Association and the West Virginia Oil and Natural Gas Association. Trump will be the first president to address the gathering, which brings together decisionmakers from the Marcellus and Utica shales to Pittsburgh each fall.
President Trump is expected to discuss the importance of domestic energy production and the creation of manufacturing jobs amid the domestic energy boom of the past decade. The president previously spoke at Shale Insight in Pittsburgh when he was running for office in 2016.
The conference will also feature a number of speakers both regionally and nationally for the natural gas industry that is a significant economic driver due to the Marcellus and Utica shales. Pennsylvania is the country’s second-largest producer of natural gas, second only to Texas due to the prolific nature of the shale.
