For more than 100 years, ASME has successfully enhanced performance and safety for the energy and piping industries worldwide through its renowned codes and standards, conformity-assessment programs, training courses, journals, and conferences – including the Off-Shore Technology Conference (OTC), International Conference on Ocean, Offshore and Arctic Engineering (OMAE), International Pipeline Conference (IPC), and the International Petroleum Technology Institute (IPTI).

ASME's Shale Development and Hydraulic Fracturing conference will focus on shale development and hydraulic fracturing for recovering natural gas and oil. Shale gas is projected to increase to 49% of U.S. gas production by 2035, up from 23% in 2010 – as it has already led the U.S. to become the world's leading natural-gas producer.

The progression of safe, consistent and reliable shale development depends, in large part, on engineering prowess. ASME's Shale Development and Hydraulic Fracturing is part of our Energy Forum series which will bring together industry leaders in a conversation on technologies, applications, and solutions required for competing in this global marketplace. In particular, we will offer long-sought focus on the suppliers of hardware/equipment/function systems for both surface and subsurface facilities. The result will be a high-level, three-day conference program that highlights critical challenges and opportunities associated with shale exploration, development, and production.
