Practical Applications of the NJ Site Remediation Program
Rutgers University
New Brunswick, NJ
8 a.m. -5 p.m. (Check-in time: 7:30am) Fee charged
The Site Remediation Reform Act and implementing regulations known as the Administrative Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (ARRCS) have created a new regulatory framework for the site remediation process in New Jersey. Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRPs) are now licensed as agents of the NJDEP to make critical decisions about protecting the public health and environment from adverse impacts posed by contaminated sites. As a result, this environmental training course has been developed to provide a hands-on practical approach for LSRPs, and other environmental professionals to learn about the new regulations and guidance specific to site remediation.

3rd Annual Marcellus Midstream Conference & Exhibition
David L. Lawrence Convention Center
1000 Fort Duquesne Blvd.
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15222

The proliferation of shale-gas production is causing a race to build the needed infrastructure to support production. As a result, producers, investors and capital providers like what they see. The ability to separate high-risk, high-reward, high-margin E&P activity from the less risky, but far more predictable, midstream business is attracting new capital expenditures.The Conference & Exhibition will focus on the opportunities surrounding the building out of the infrastructure needed in non-traditional petroleum-producing regions. As capital is becoming easier to obtain, and operators are exploring their options in shale-gas recovery, your company will want to exhibit at the one conference designed to bring the latest information to the industry.
Network with CEOs, CFOs, COOs, E&P and pipeline operators, pipeline schedulers and others from the gas storage, processing, and pipeline industries alongside capital providers and deal-makers. More than 1,400 attendees registered in 2011! Mark your calendar and plan to attend the largest Marcellus networking event of the year!  Conference Agenda
