The date is approaching fast and teams are making preparations all over the globe. Join in to celebrate the transformative benefits of Shale Energy!
World Shale Energy Day was an epic success, with activities, events and celebrations held throughout the world. The big day may have come and gone, but feel free to post with hashtag #WorldShaleEnergyDay and please keep in touch as we’re always up to something new and exciting.
CELEBRATING SHALE ENERGY AND THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE IT HAPPEN
Once a year, the shale energy industry comes together across the world to celebrate the transformative nature of organic-rich black shale and the array of amazing professionals who make it all possible.
With virtual meetings, hybrid meetings, open houses, webinars, online forums, show-and-tell, and networking events, World Shale Energy Day provides a rich immersion into the shale energy ecosystem.
World Shale Energy Day is a global celebration of the prodigious quantities of energy entrapped in shale formations worldwide along with the resource recovery teams who have initiated one of the world’s greatest engineering accomplishments.
While it's true that shale formations are not found in every country on the planet, all nations are certainly beneficiaries and supporters of shale energy resources worldwide. This initiative brings together those global advocates in a single, one day celebration of unity of purpose.
For next generation energy professionals and leaders, World Shale Energy Day is an opportunity to share in their mutual passion while preserving and promoting relationships, traditions and shared memories. Swing open the doors and have some fun while also educating and informing those who attend.
The website www.WorldShaleEnergyDay.org will maintain information about this global project and tip off those wishing to organize events on March 17th each year.
World Shale Energy Day aims to raise awareness of the contribution that shale has made and will make to our society and to celebrate the diverse range of people that plan, provision and execute shale energy recovery projects from large fields down to smaller regional plays.
The celebration is held on March 17th each year; a day associated with the first commercial hydraulic fracture process in 1949.
This is a "distributed event" with activities being organized by regional, national and international leaders. Individual open day organizers are encouraged to check back for event and celebration details. Event organizers can download a range of promotional collateral from this website including press releases for local media, tweetables, flyers and online banners. Event and brand logos will be made available via this main website.
During the current waning public health crisis, shale-derived resources have helped create life-saving products. Shale yields the feedstock for medical equipment such as ventilators, gloves, sanitizers and face shields that are so needed by health care workers. Natural gas keeps the power on in hospitals, nursing homes and schools, and as businesses continue to reopen, it powers the economy once again.
Highlighting Innovation on World Shale Energy Day 2024
This year the spotlight is on innovation; yours or your company.
Innovations are the accelerators of the shale energy industry. Today, the average gas well is five times more productive and efficient than prior generation wells. As a result of innovations, production increased nearly 100 percent over the prior decade. The shale revolution, which is the result of some of the biggest technological breakthroughs and innovations in a generation, has launched a manufacturing renaissance and given the world a level of energy security not imaginable only a few years ago.
Innovations have made operations safer, more efficient, and more environmentally friendly. Innovative technologies that include more advanced leak detection equipment and innovative capture techniques are driving decreases in methane and other emissions during a time when production has increased dramatically.
If you have an innovation to highlight on World Shale Energy Day, please let us know so we can amplify your successes during this global event.
Q & A about World Shale Energy Day
World Shale Energy Day is a global celebration of the positive benefits of shale energy (and the people who make it happen) held on March 17th, each year. The celebration is held on March 17th each year; a day associated with the first commercial hydraulic fracture process in 1949.
You can be an "active" or a "passive" participant. An active participant creates events in their location, posts on social media, joins in other events and leads. A passive participant watches all the great activity and has fun!
Global Network Ambassadors for World Shale Energy Day organize events in geographic locations throughout the world and act as the point person in your country.
