Steve Hovan and
Katie Farnsworth, Geoscience Department, presented at the
2018 Shale Network Workshop at Penn State in mid-May 2018. This workshop brought together a diverse group of stakeholders to discuss
impacts from unconventional gas development.
The 2018 workshop was titled “Integrating Data about Shale Gas Development: Toward a More Collaborative Future.” Members of watershed associations, environmental groups, industry, government organizations, and academia came together to share findings
and discuss impacts from shale gas development.
Steve Hovan presented a talk and a poster that previewed a soon-to-be-released mobile app: “Well Mapper: A new app to crowdsource
location and condition of abandoned and orphaned oil and gas wells.” Hovan also served on a panel discussion focused on the “next steps” of how to tackle the issues of abandoned legacy oil and gas wells.
