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 open houses, meetings, 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, there certainly are 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 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 reopen, it will power the economy once again.
Your support as a sponsor or partner will enable us to put your logo on this site, meet your goals, broaden outreach, celebrate this valuable resource and honor the heroes who make it happen! Your generous donation in any amount will fund the mission for World Shale Energy Day celebrations.
