About the Workshop

Co-sponsored by the National Agricultural & Rural Development Policy (NARDeP) Center, the 2014 NAREA Workshop on Non-Conventional Oil and Gas Energy will be held at the Waterfront Place Hotel in Morgantown, WV following the end of the NAREA conference.  The NAREA and NARDeP co-sponsored Workshop will take place on June 3-4, after the NAREA Annual Meeting, which takes place on June 1-3. Presentations are currently planned to last one-half day on Tuesday, June 3, 2014 and the full day on Wednesday, June 4, 2014. The optional well pad tour scheduled for Thursday, June 5th has been cancelled due to a change in the drilling operation schedule.

The workshop will include keynote addresses from recognized experts in the field, paper presentations chosen on the basis of submitted abstracts, and in-depth working sessions. A special issue of the Agricultural and Resource Economics Review (ARER) will be published from workshop papers accepted after an expedited version of the journal's peer-review process. In addition, NARDeP will host 1400-word policy briefs by the workshop paper authors.
