CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The state Department of Commerce announced overnight an agreement with China Energy to invest $83.7 billion in shale gas development and chemical manufacturing projects in West Virginia.

Gov.Jim Justice touted it as the largest private investment in West Virginia’s history.

The agreement was the biggest among several deals signed during President Donald Trump’s state visit to Beijing. The total value of the deals done during Trump’s trip could be as much as $250 billion, Reuters reported.

Charleston, WV (November 1, 2017) – Encouraging and mentoring women in the oil and natural gas industry is the goal of the West Virginia Oil & Natural Gas Association’s (WVONGA) 4th Annual Embracing Energy Conference, to take place in Charleston November 9-10, organization representatives announced. 

“This event will bring together women in the oil and gas fields, as well as those interested in working in this industry, for education and networking,” said Anne Blankenship, executive director of the West Virginia Oil & Natural Gas Association.  “There are many opportunities for career growth and development in the energy sector and I would encourage anyone interested in learning more to attend this conference.” 

With citizens voting to approve Gov. Jim Justice’s “Roads to Prosperity” road bond amendment and federal regulators approving two pipeline projects that will cross through the state, West Virginia will soon be flush with economic opportunities and thousands of new jobs.

According to lawmakers, state officials, representatives of labor organizations and other invested parties, the projects funded by passage of the road bond amendment, as well as construction of the Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast pipelines, will greatly benefit the state and its economy.

Before passage of the road bond amendment, Justice repeatedly told the state’s voters that highway projects funded as a result would generate more than 48,000 jobs and spark economic development in the state. 

Charleston, W.Va. (October 14, 2017) – Anne Blankenship, executive director of the West Virginia Oil & Natural Gas Association, issued the following statement today following the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) approval of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, the Supply Header Pipeline and the Mountain Valley Pipeline projects:

“WVONGA members greatly appreciate the FERC’s issuance of certificates for the Atlantic Coast, Supply Header and Mountain Valley pipeline projects.  These crucially important projects have been planned and studied exhaustively for several years and will offer transportation for West Virginia-produced natural gas to markets across the southeast. This new infrastructure will allow our state to more fully develop its natural gas resources, leading to more jobs throughout the economy.
