The Chicago-based Gas Technology Institute (GTI) has opened an office in Pittsburgh to show the organization’s commitment to the natural gas industry in the Marcellus Shale fairway and the surrounding region. GTI maintains field offices in other parts of the US as well.
GTI says its continued growth in the Marcellus Shale region will be achieved by generating effective technology development and services based on customer needs, and through partnering to develop technology, create collaborative opportunities and achieve strategic business results. The efforts led by the Pittsburgh office will advance the development of innovative solutions to the region’s most pressing challenges.
“We’re excited about establishing a stronger presence in this important region,” says David Carroll, president and CEO of GTI. “We are committed to the future of natural gas and see tremendous opportunity for growth in the shale market where GTI has performed analysis since the 1980s. Our new office location will help us provide the continued high-level customer service and technology developments that will help meet today's complex energy and environmental challenges.”
Patrick Findle will head the Pittsburgh office. He worked for GTI earlier in his career and has returned to help establish a strategic beachhead for business growth. He brings many years of technology business development in the natural gas industry that will help GTI build industry relationships and facilitate new business.
“Along with growing global demand for natural gas, there is a correlating demand for new technologies to enable and ensure its responsible production, distribution, and use,” said Findle. “The opening of the Pittsburgh office is evidence of GTI’s commitment to become a valued resource and partner to the natural gas industry as it transforms this region.”
GTI is a research, development, and training organization that has been addressing global energy and environmental challenges by developing technology-based solutions for consumers, industry, and government for 70 years.
