A new series of web-based seminars aimed at helping local businesses prosper from natural gas drilling and development, presented by Penn State Extension’s Marcellus Educational Consortium, will be offered this fall. “Your Business and Marcellus Shale: Moving Forward 2011” is a five-part program. “Participants will expand their knowledge of the opportunities that exist in the market as well as how to make connections and plan for doing business in this growing industry,” said Jonathan Laughner, extension educator in Beaver County who is moderating the every two-weeks sessions. Speakers will include natural-gas industry representatives, local business people responding to opportunities, financial specialists and business-development representatives.
