Lt. Gov. Greg Bell addresses oil shale symposium in Colorado
GOLDEN, Colo. — Utah's efforts to develop its oil shale reserves were among topics addressed by Lt. Gov. Greg Bell at the 31st Annual Oil Shale Symposium.
Bell spoke Monday afternoon at the event hosted by the Colorado School of Mines and the Center for Oil Shale Technology.
“Oil shale has a long and storied history in our state, and Utah’s formations have the potential to be one of our nation’s greatest energy resources,” Bell said. "Gov. (Gary) Herbert and I have made energy development one of the four cornerstones of our administration because it is key to Utah’s ongoing economic recovery and prosperity. This symposium is an opportunity to showcase our commitment."
Staff from the Utah Office of Energy Development also participated, addressing Herbert's 10-year Strategic Energy Plan and Utah's oil shale reserves. Individual sessions at the symposium will review development of oil shale resources worldwide, including research and development, environmental impacts, regulations, and current and future projects.
Attendees include delegations from Europe, the Middle East, Canada and the United States.
