UNB’s Saint John College and the Atlantica Centre for Energy are teaming up to offer a public workshop on natural gas—the issues, the challenges and the opportunities in New Brunswick. 

This is an almost perfect match between the Centre and the college. 

Saint John College has been offering the Energy Fundamentals for Leaders program for the past two years to great success.  The program allows participants the opportunity to explore various forms of energy through in-class instruction, site visits, expert panels and hands-on learning experiences.

Combine this with the Centre’s ability to serve as a bridge between organizations operating in the energy sector and the community and the end result is a day-long workshop entitled “Be Informed! Natural Gas: Issues, Challenges and Opportunities.”

“This workshop will provide fact-based information for anyone interested in learning more about natural gas,” explained Peter McGill, director of Saint John College.

 “This session on natural gas is a great opportunity to hear from experts in their fields. Anyone who wants to make informed decisions about developing this resource will benefit from attending,” said Colleen Mitchell, president, Atlantic Centre for Energy.

“Be Informed!” will be held Tuesday, Sept. 9, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Moncton and on Thursday, Sept. 11, at the Crown Plaza Hotel, Fredericton.

Sessions will cover regulations and enforcement; natural gas challenges and opportunities; and a producer perspective.
