On the same day the Independent Democrat Caucus in New York announced another piece of proposed legislation to delay development of the Marcellus Shale in New York, two representatives from a premiere energy conference in New Mexico heralded success on the radio and praise for energy operators.

The San Juan Basin Energy Conference,( ) happening in Farmington, NM on March 18 and 19 is already sold out, with operators traveling to northwest New Mexico from all over the country and beyond. According to the website, this conference will bring together parties interested in Mancos Shale development, considered the next significant oil and gas shale play in that region. Developing this play is heralded as a renaissance for this region after nearly a century of petroleum geology and activity.

Interest in this conference
has come from as far away as Bulgaria. Last June, Bulgarian Parliament eased its ban on hydraulic fracturing, to take advantage of its natural gas reserves and lessen the country’s dependency on Russian resources.

“It’s a real opportunity to bring everyone together,” Randy Pacheco, dean of the San Juan College School of Energy ( ) said on The Scott Michlin Morning Show, at in Farmington, NM. Hear the entire program here: .

Full disclosure: program host Michlin is a native New Yorker who has lived in New Mexico for 22 years. He sees the economic impact a robust energy industry has in a community. He teaches at San Juan
College, where the School of Energy is a national leader in educating tomorrow’s energy professionals. He also lived in New York’s struggling Southern Tier for several years and knows the region needs an economic boost.

The focus of this conference will be the game-changing activity of the Mancos Shale play, anticipated to be rich with oil reserves. This area of New Mexico has traditionally been the place for natural gas development. Hydraulic fracturing, however, is opening the door to oil production here, which was previously limited to southeast New Mexico.“It’s going to be important for oil production. It’s a new venture and it’s welcomed here,” said Dean Pacheco.

open_door_to_opportunity Dean Pacheco spoke words that would endear New Yorkers in the Southern Tier, if only they were spoken here.“It’s a very interesting time here in the San Juan Basin because we’re starting to see an evolution of energy. Not only have we produced trillions of cubic feet of natural gas and millions of gallons of oil and terawatts of electricity. As you start to see natural gas and how we use natural gas, the San Juan Basin will continue to be a major player in energy production in the US. We need to come together as a community – education, government and business – to insure that we can position this for our local residents.” for more of the article go to --->

Damn those inventors who made our lifes easier and luxurious. Marie Curie lived to be 70 yr's of age after creating and being exposed to radiation for 36 yr's. How many deaths do we have everyday on the highways? Thank you Henry Ford! should i go on?.

Where can i get a heath kit to build my own pinwheel or solar panels to power all my luxurys?

Why don't i have NG gaslines going by my house to tap into?

How can healh studies be effective and truthful from drilling for oil and gas on people who use and dump household chemicals everyday?

Theres no feasablility with those solar blankets, do you have one?

Everybody uses chemicals, so the map of the US should be all red.

Exporting oil and gas is called a trade, I feel other countries should be encouraged to use clean energy, especially China and Japan seeing that all their pollution comes this way.

It was about 815 when I found the list a few months ago.

How many people have died so far? I'm not sure. How many people will die in the future because of what is happening now?
