West Virginia 4th Annual Oil & Gas Expo

Oct. 03, 2014

The popularity of various shale gas explorations in this region continues to be extremely healthy, which is why on 1, October Bug-O Systems exhibited again at the 4th Annual West Virginia Oil & Gas Expo.  The event took place at the Mylan Park Expo Center in Morgantown, West Virginia. This location was ideal as West Virginia has been a key state in the development and growth of the Marcellus and Utica shale play. This Expo offered a great platform to network with all aspects of the industry and for local businesses to showcase their products and services. This day long business-to-business event was hosted by Asayo Creative Inc. and WVONGA (West Virginia Oil and Natural Gas Association). Its focus was on the latest strategies and opportunities for the future of the oil and gas industry. An exhibitor-only reception was held the night before the event and included food, music and drinks for exhibitors to network together.


Bug-O Systems had on display both the Piper-Plus and the Universal Bug-O-Matic to demonstrate mechanization of pipe welding in the industry. Jeff Nelson, Manager-Applications/Specials and Mark Campbell–Regional Sales Manager, met with many interested pipe welding customers.


The 2,000+ attendees and 300 exhibitors made this year’s expo the most successful yet. Companies came from not only West Virginia but surrounding states as well, even as far as Texas and Oklahoma. Local trade shows are a great opportunity for Bug-O Systems to support this growing industry. Bug-O Systems is honored to have been part of this event and will continue to back the pipe welding industry in mechanization.
