WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff will sponsor an open forum, organized by the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, entitled “Fueling a Downstream Economy” (November 1, 2016 at the Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia). It will feature energy experts and regional stakeholders from industry and government.


The forum will highlight the economic benefits to the Greater Philadelphia region resulting from expanded infrastructure to transport natural gas and natural gas liquids from the Marcellus and Utica shale regions. Pipeline networks, trans-loading facilities, port and marine terminals and underground storage facilities are all needed to move these products to domestic markets and to improve access to international markets.
