EnCana upbeat for Energy Expo
EnCana Oil & Gas (USA) holds its seventh annual Energy Expo from noon to 5 p.m. today at the Garfield County Fairgrounds in Rifle.
The company says this year’s expo will seek to convey that energy still is being developed in Colorado in many forms.
EnCana says that even with the recent reduction in drilling activity, the expo provides an important opportunity for people to learn more about the energy industry in western Colorado.
With more than 80 exhibitors, the expo will focus on not only the natural gas industry, but also environmental initiatives and alternative energy. One new exhibitor, Holy Cross Energy, will offer information on wind power.
Another new exhibitor is the NEED (National Energy Education Development) program, which teaches the science of energy to teachers through hands-on workshops and events.
EnCana plans to display a vehicle from a recently launched program for employees access to a fleet of natural gas vehicles for business and commuter use.
Other energy operators, as well as contractors, work force training groups, and government and regulatory agencies, will participate.
