One of the privileges of writing about the Marcellus/Utica industry is the occasional opportunity to attend worthwhile events and connect with the terrific people who work in this industry. Shale Insight (last week in Pittsburgh) was one of those events. MDN editor Jim Willis will attend another such event in a few weeks: Midstream PA 2019. Joe Barone, founder of Shale Directories, is the guy behind Midstream PA and similar events. Joe always puts on a good conference. Joe and Bryce Custer, from NAI Ohio River Corridor commercial real estate brokerage, have created a brand new event called the Appalachian Basin Real Estate Conference. Looks like another winner!
