Jan. 22, 2013 @ 07:35 AM

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — The West Virginia University Extension Service is holding two programs this month to help educate residents about issues related to developing the Utica shale natural gas field.

One program will be held Jan. 29 at the Parkersburg City Building. The second program is set for Jan. 30 at the Wetzel County 4-H Camp’s Mollohan Center in New Martinsville.

The Utica shale lies beneath the Marcellus shale. The programs will focus on development and leasing issues.
