Sci-Tek Presents on Changing Oil & Gas Regulations
Pittsburgh, PA June 2012. Sci-Tek Consultants, Inc. (Sci-Tek) has increasingly been engaged in Marcellus Shale projects. Thus far, Sci-Tek has completed a number of Natural Gas related projects, including construction materials testing, pipeline design, permitting, and subsurface investigations. Sci-Tek is now spreading the word by becoming an educational resource for those interested in the regulatory aspect of the Natural Gas business in Pennsylvania.
Holly A. Hudson, Business Development Manager of Sci-Tek spoke at the Three Rivers Chapter of the Academy of Certified Hazardous Materials Managers (ACHMM) Professional Development Seminar on June 5, 2012, about the recent technical and regulatory issues confronting the Oil and Gas Exploration, especially highlighting Act 13 (the new Oil and Gas Act in PA) and the Erosion and Sediment Control General Permit-2 (ESCGP-2).
During the presentation Holly gave an in-depth lesson on the history, purpose, and challenges of the regulatory process. She also made attendees aware of the enforcement procedures and upcoming training opportunities.
Such presentations are a critical asset to those involved and interested in the Oil and Gas Industry and help to prevent errors and penalties as a result of not staying abreast of the regulatory changes.
Hudson brings over 20 years professional experience, particularly in environmental health and safety and compliance. Holly has served in various capacities for the environmental sector, ranging from government, industry, and oil and gas.
