JKLM Energy Hosts Penn State Officials for Natural Gas Operations Tour

JKLM Energy operations in Sweden Valley
POTTER COUNTY, Pa. – JKLM Energy, LLC hosted Penn State officials for a field tour of the company’s Potter County operations. The tour of active well pad operations in the Sweden Valley area focused on career training for Penn State students and graduates as well as additional collaboration opportunities.

Pennsylvania is on the leading edge of energy development in the United States, and Penn State – through creating transformative educational experiences – remains a world-class research university with a focus on impacting important energy and environmental challenges. Clean-burning, locally produced natural gas is enabling Pennsylvania residents and graduates to find good-paying energy, environmental and manufacturing-related careers right here in Pennsylvania. Collaboration like today’s event helps Penn State better prepare tomorrow’s energy leaders.

Several officials from the University’s administration and various colleges, including the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences and Smeal College of Business, attended the tour Wednesday afternoon.

“Pennsylvania’s abundant natural gas resources have transformed our nation into a dominant energy producer, securing America’s energy independence. What’s exciting is that this is just the beginning of an unprecedented opportunity,” said Terrence Pegula, founder and CEO of JKLM Energy and Pennsylvania-native who earned a petroleum and natural gas engineering degree from Penn State in 1973. “I’m honored that we could provide University officials a firsthand look at our operations and discuss the opportunities for Penn State students and graduates to join the local energy industry that is moving Pennsylvania and our country forward.”

During the field operations tour, JKLM professionals discussed modern technologies that have enabled America’s shale revolution as well as best practices and rigorous safety protocols that the company uses to responsibly produce energy.

“Studying petroleum and natural gas engineering at Penn State allowed me to land a good career in Pennsylvania’s growing energy industry,” said Nathan Case, a JKLM Reservoir Engineer and 2017 Penn State graduate. “Our shale basins are some of the most prolific resources in the world and I’m proud that my alma mater is expanding its energy focus so fellow graduates, like me, have the same opportunity.”
