EARTHRES Speaks to WVU Environmental & Energy Resource Management Students on Oil & Gas Career Development

Howard G Murphy, Jr., P.E., Director of Energy Services at EARTHRES recently spoke to over 30 Environmental and Energy Resource Management students regarding career opportunities within the petrochemical industry.

“As a whole, the petrochemical industry is poised for growth, with slated development and projected production levels positioning the US to be the global leader in the next 10 years.  According to studies, it is estimated there will be approximately $145 billion in petrochemical industrial facility expansions in the US by 2025, with several petrochemical operations slated for development in the WV/OH/PA tristate area1.  The Appalachian Basin, is slated to be supplying 40% of America’s total natural gas production in the next 12 years2,” states Howard Murphy at EARTHRES.

Murphy continues, “This regional expansion will require appropriate infrastructure development, greatly improving the regional economy and job market for trained energy professionals.  We are happy to help cultivate these students to be future oil and gas young professionals and keep these jobs here at home with students trained right here in West Virginia.”
