APPALACHIAN OIL AND GAS EMERGENCIES WORKSHOP
MAY 11, 2017
The oil and gas industry is required to plan for emergency situations during the extraction of natural gas from Marcellus Shale. Pennsylvania has regulations and programs in place that provide direction for the development of emergency response plans. During an emergency industry works with state and local responders while following planned protocols to manage and control the event.
Join oil and gas industry stakeholders and first responders to learn about how industry utilizes the National Incident Management System (NIMS) during an emergency in concert with state and local first responders. Obtain a comprehensive overview of industry protocols prior to site development and during construction, drilling and production to prevent and manage emergencies. Additionally, learn how to prepare and submit Pennsylvania required Act 9 Plans.
