Congressman Bill Johnson (R-Marietta) released the following statement after inviting representatives from Shale Crescent USA to take part in the “Energy and Environment Innovation Showcase,” which will be held on Monday, December 9 in Washington, D.C.:

“Shale Crescent USA works with many of the stakeholders that are innovating and creating new economic opportunities for hardworking people across Ohio’s energy resource-rich Sixth Congressional District,” Bill Johnson said. “In part, their work can help ensure that this region takes complete and responsible economic advantage of the opportunities resulting from the Utica and Marcellus shale plays, which includes new and reliable job opportunities today and for future generations.”

Republican members of the House Energy & Commerce Committee have invited companies, educational institutions, and other organizations from their districts to showcase ongoing projects, products, and services and discuss how successful energy and environment policy is best secured through realistic, innovative public policy – rather than through overly burdensome federal regulations. 

Shale Crescent USA added: "Due to recent shale developments, if Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania were a country it would now be the third largest natural gas producing country in the world. This along with other assets (proximity to market, workforce, and water) has created a world class opportunity for manufacturers. Shale Crescent USA's mission is to create high wage manufacturing jobs in the region, and enhance the quality of life and standard of living. We look forward to discussing with congressional leaders about this once in a lifetime opportunity for job growth."
