WV Sierra Club invites you to participate in the 2014 Spring Gas Well Workshops:

This is a great opportunity to become a well informed gas well sleuth.

There will be three online workshops devoted to intense guided study in three topics:

Using West Virginia Online Databases (Monday, May 19 through Sunday, June 1)

We’ll look at and grow used to accessing West Virginia online oil and gas databases that are available to the public.

West Virginia Underground Injection Control Class 2 Program (Monday, June 2 through Sunday, June 15)

We’ll look at class 2 UIC wells in West Virginia used to dispose of liquid oil and gas waste, including state and federal laws, what the wells do, and the waste they inject.

West Virginia Laws and Regulations (starts June 16)

We’ll look at West Virginia laws that relate to oil and gas activity, specifically those that fall under WV Department of Environmental Protection oversight, including instruments the DEP uses like General Permit for Water Pollution Control.

The online workshops include a short overview YouTube video and downloadable study materials. The Databases and UIC Class 2 workshops will have online forums where participants can ask questions and exchange information.

A sample workshop is at http://workshops.sootypaws.net/moodle/

Login as Guest at http://workshops.sootypaws.net/moodle/login/index.php and use the password Sierra. There is a sample forum, video, and workshop materials.

A handout for all participants on how to use the workshops’ web interface is at http://workshops.sootypaws.net/documents/using_gws_handout.pdf

Registration is a two step process. Contact Jim Sconyers  (jimscon@gmail.com ) to let him know you desire to attend one, two, or all three workshops. Each workshop has a separate enrollment key necessary to attend.

Once you have the enrollment key, go to http://workshops.sootypaws.net/moodle/login/index.php to log in. As a first time user of the website you’ll need to create a login name and password.
