WellDog announced it is one of twelve companies that will participate in the inaugural Oil and Gas Cleantech Challenge. A group of top oil and gas companies including ConocoPhillips, Encana and Noble Energy selected WellDog from a national pool of applicants.
“ConocoPhillips is pleased to be a founding supporter of the Oil and Gas Cleantech Challenge,” said Dave Heskin, Technology and Projects Manager at ConocoPhillips. “We look forward to working with clean technology leaders and the oil and gas industry in Colorado and nationally to reinforce ConocoPhillips’ commitment to economic growth and a healthy environment.”
“We have been so pleased with the positive response to this program,” said Chris Shapard, Colorado Cleantech Industries Association Executive Director. “We knew this could be a great opportunity to bring together the cleantech and oil and natural gas communities and given the interest we’ve received from across the country we’re looking forward to some great partnerships coming out of the program.”
The event, to be held October 2 at the Colorado Governor’s Mansion in Denver, highlights new technologies that can make energy development safer, more environmentally responsible and cleaner.
