Alexander McKenzie-Johnson to Moderate Session on Landslide Hazards at Shale Insight 2020 Conference

Alexander McKenzie-Johnson, P.G., L.G., L.E.G (Texas) will moderate the session entitled "Effectively Managing Landslide Hazards within an Integrity Management Framework" at the 10th Annual SHALE INSIGHT™ 2020 Conference from 1:45 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. September 29, 2020.

The panelists for the session are Jonathan Bell, P.E., Senior Engineer, Williams; Patrick Fleck, P.E., Integrity Engineer – Geohazards, Marathon Petroleum Corporation; and Clayton Johnson, LG, Integrity Engineer – Weather and Outside Forces, TC Energy. Geosyntec is a crystal sponsor for the session

SHALE INSIGHT™ 2020, celebrating its 10th anniversary in a new virtual event format, offers attendees, exhibitors and sponsors access to the insights of CEOs, elected and other public officials and thought leaders across the spectrum, all of whom play a critical role in crafting the public policy and technical landscape that defines shale gas development around the world.

The Marcellus Shale Coalition (MSC) is an organization committed to the responsible development of natural gas from the Marcellus and Utica Shale geological formations, and the enhancement of the nation's economy that can be realized by this clean-burning energy source. The member companies of the coalition work with partners across the region to address issues with regulators, local, county, state and federal government officials and communities about all aspects of producing clean-burning, job-creating natural gas from the Marcellus and Utica Shale.


Landslides have resulted in multiple pipeline ruptures in the Appalachian region in the past few years. However, management of this hazard does not fit easily into traditional integrity management approaches and identifying and managing landslides prior to an incident can seem daunting. Join an industry leading panel to discuss a straightforward logical approach to identifying, characterizing, and managing landslides before an incident occurs. The panel discussion will put landslides into an integrity management framework and demonstrate how existing pipeline integrity management programs can successfully reduce risk from this challenging hazard.
