  • Experts see continued rise in Pa. shale gas production
    Marcellus Shale natural gas production in Pennsylvania is expected to continue to increase despite a decline in the number of rigs operating there, observers say. Last week, the state had 63 active rigs, compared with 111 in the same period last year, according to Baker Hughes. About one-third of drilled wells in the state have yet to be linked to pipelines, said Thomas Murphy, energy development co-director at Pennsylvania State University Extension's Marcellus Center for Outreach and Research.

    The National Science Foundation has awarded the University of Colorado Boulder $12 million to research the potential economic benefits and environmental effects of natural gas drilling. The project, which will be headed by Professor Joseph Ryan of the university's environmental and architectural engineering department, will concentrate on the Rocky Mountain region. "Our goal is to provide a framework for society to evaluate the trade-offs associated with the benefits and costs of natural gas development," Ryan said.

  • Flattery will get you nowhere, experts warn
    Top executives need good advice, but they're the very people who find it hardest to obtain, researchers say. The more senior a business leader, the more they attract flatterers and yes-men instead of people capable of telling them tough, uncomfortable truths. "My advice would be to remember that the higher you are, the more likely you are to be ingratiated, and therefore you should make sure you get advice from people who do not depend on you," Kellogg School of Management professor Ithai Stern says.
