The Marcellus Shale Coalition (MSC) on Thursday elected a new leadership team to helm the executive committee and announced the addition of almost three dozen associate member companies.

Three gas executives were selected to lead the MSC’s executive committee:

“Randy, Rob and Tom are outstanding professionals, and bring a breadth of understanding and proven leadership to the Marcellus Shale Coalition’s senior team,” said MSC President Kathryn Klaber. “We’re excited and grateful to have them join our talented executive committee. Their work will help build upon the positive progress — more affordable supplies of clean-burning, homegrown energy for American consumers, the creation of tens of thousands of new jobs, and smarter, more effective ways to ensure environmental safety — that our industry continues to make each day.”

Klaber said the MSC’s “diverse and growing list of members underscores not only how far-reaching our industry’s impact and supply chain is having for the region’s economy, but more importantly, our long-term commitment to making absolutely certain that we get this historic opportunity right.”

EOG Resources Inc. Vice President Gary Smith also announced that 35 associate members have joined the coalition.

“With more than 165 members strong now — cutting across a host of industries — we’re eager to expand our successes in the coming year,” said Smith, who chairs the MSC membership committee. “Our associate members play a critical role on a host of levels, and we’re thrilled to have so many subject matter experts working in tandem.”
