Letter from the Executive President Dear members, neighbors, and friends: It has been an interesting winter with so many Southpointe building project managers desperately trying to stay on schedule with the unpredictable weather. We have the Mylan Labs building well under roof with windows in place. The walls and roof are up on the Zenith Ridge (Burns & Scalo) project with ANSYS anxiously waiting to move their software operations. The Holiday Inn Express is under roof and expected to open in the Spring, located behind Homewood Suites on Horizon Vue Drive. Many don’t know that Rice Energy has joined the group of builders with a new building under construction on Woodcliff Drive. The newly completed building located behind Waynesburg University (J Barry Center) has several new tenants who are already in Southpointe and are expanding their offices. The entire top (5th) floor is occupied by Mark West Energy Partners. Schlumberger occupies the 3rd floor and Cimation, an automation company, moved its offices to the first floor. While flying over, we can see the key positioning of Southpointe Town Center being in close proximity to all the new neighbors. Interestingly, the mix is about ¼ medical, ¼ software development, and ¼ gas/oil industry with the remainder being hospitality, retail, restaurants and smaller offices. All of the new business moves equate to great opportunities for chamber members. In this edition we are pleased to have Shen Yun Performing Arts, the Gateway Clipper Fleet, Canonsburg Lake’s On Deck Bar & Grille, Bishop Canevin High School and Cushman Wakefield/ Grant Street as new advertisers. Our appreciation goes out to our in-house photographer Mike George for his timely, winter photo of the Southpointe Golf Club. Make sure to attend our events, log onto the www.southpointechamber.com website and use our Mobile APP for updates. As always, we would like to have breakfast, lunch or cocktails with you to discuss your business and how the Southpointe Marcellus Shale Chamber can help you grow.

Wood Group Mustang Grows in Southwest Pennsylvania Many companies boast cultures that engage and retain employees, but do they always live up to their claims? In the late 80s, one company was founded on the philosophy of employee engagement long before it became a buzzword in
the corporate world. Mustang Engineering coined the phrase People Oriented...Project Driven® 26 years ago and continues to live by this motto even after its 2000 acquisition with U.K. energy service leader Wood Group, evolving as Wood Group Mustang. This culture continues to be cultivated across global offices, including Canonsburg, Pa. General Manager Jim Albitz launched the local Southpointe office of Wood Group Mustang and has been growing the office for the past three years. Since its inception, the company, which employs approximately 30 full-time employees and provides engineering, design, project management and field services for pipeline and facility projects, has relocated three times to accommodate its growth, most recently to the Stealth Technology Center in Southpointe. “It’s really exciting to see the economic development and jobs that have been created over the past several years in this region,” said Albitz. “As a native of western Pennsylvania, I am happy to be a part of the rebirth of the communities benefiting from the production activities and support operations.” Albitz spent over 30 years in the Northeast as an engineer, engineering manager and project manager for a large natural gas transmission company. The combination of the shale boom and Wood Group Mustang has afforded him the perfect opportunity in his own backyard to start the next phase of his career in his hometown of Canonsburg. Wood Group and its employees embrace seven core values – Safety & Assurance, Relationships, Social Responsibility, People, Innovation, Financial Responsibility and Integrity. People are at the heart of these values. “We pride ourselves on nurturing the people-oriented culture of Wood Group in this regional office,” said Albitz. “And our employees, who we call Mustangers, appreciate the emphasis on maintaining
a fun, positive office environment, the training and development opportunities and the chance to work with some of the best clients in the oil and gas industry, but also with top talent within Wood Group Mustang.” Wood Group Mustang has been recognized in recent years as one of the best employers to work for, both nationally and locally in Houston, Texas, where its headquarters are located. This stems from its history of taking care of its people and its mission to embody a culture that inspires super-motivated people to make heroes of clients, partners, vendors and Mustangers. The core value social responsibility champions a philosophy of making a positive difference in the communities in which the company works. Wood Group Mustang maintains a corporate philanthropic initiative called Heart of Mustang, which focuses on two areas: first, helping its own with support during natural disasters and departments organizing benefits for team members facing serious health issues; and second, providing support to the charitable organizations in our communities and ones for which continued on pg.10

Business Updates continued from pg.6 Mustangers have a particular passion. “Recently, we were able to support the social responsibility value by holding a raffle of some unused computers and donated several thousand dollars to the Heart of Mustang charity to help it with its overall mission,” said Albitz. “Locally, we always are looking for ways to support industry and charitable organizations where we can provide our time and expertise. Recently, through an education outreach volunteer program, we spoke to a group of Albert Gallatin High School students considering careers in the oil and gas industry.” In addition to the community-based affiliations, the company works hard to maintain the relationships within the markets it serves. “We build and nurture strong relationships with customers, business partners and suppliers that are mutually beneficial, making sure that we deeply understand the people we deal with, so that we can anticipate their needs and always aim to exceed their expectations,” said Albitz. The Canonsburg office of Wood Group Mustang has been working with various producer and midstream companies since its inception and continuously seeks opportunities where it can apply the local experience and knowledge of its engineers and technical professionals. “A number of our resources have been working in the natural gas industry in the

Local Chamber Members Provide Medical Aid in Peru
Greater than 3,000 people cared for in 4 1/2 days. 25 suitcases of medications. Mission: Provide medical help to Santa Cruz and Mt Horeb communities in the San Martin District of Lima Peru; the poorest communities of the district with the greatest need. GoTimeMinistries, Inc. in partnership with Sons of the King church in Lima Peru directed a medical mission trip to Lima in conjunction with South Hills Family Medicine and Specialists from Jefferson Regional Medical Center. Collaborating with Peruvian physicians and providers, we traveled October into November with the goal of providing medical and spiritual care to "the forgotten ones" in the poorest communities in Lima. Led by Pastor Brent Furlong, the American team numbering 21 care providers traveled from Pittsburgh to provide service. Drs. Michael McGonigal (Family Practice), Brian Deyarmin (Family Practice), and Nurse Practitioner Debbie Stroop (Family Practice) from South Hills Family Medicine joined Drs. David Demarino (ENT) and Georgine Demarino (Radiology), and David Stapor (Orthopedic Surgery) forming the base of the American medical and pharmacy team. Pastor Brent Furlong led the spiritual providers. Support team members completed the circle of care and support. Traveling to care clinic within 6 hours of landing in Peru, the team realized the gravity of need, and the plight of a culture not so far away from our daily lives. Also realized, we met the beauty of spirit, hospitality, politeness, patience, and graciousness of the Peruvian poor people. Smiles and holding touches were abundant. Gratitude and peaceful resolve reined. With no map available or needed, dirt roads traveled led us deeper into city block miles of masonry buildings most without roofs and all within various stages of building development. Skinned tree saplings supported erected 2nd and 3rd floors. Hazy skies gave break to sunshine for about an hour and a half mid day that was engulfed into afternoon accumulating smog. Dust flew. Dusty soil ground was hard as concrete. The air was humid. Electric infrastructure is not unlike strands of Christmas light decorations strung from common pole sources. Cars and buses, road-hard and tire-bald play an endless game of city-wide Chicken. The color green was found only on cultivated balconies and struggling to survive roadside sparse spaces.
They came by foot. They came by down rough cut rock steps. They came by the bus loads from areas too far to walk out from the shanty town hills. They came from little pink houses. On widegapped concrete soccer playing surfaces with metal framed cage-like cubbies covered in country-proud red and white linen partitioned care coves had been erected by each community. The team arrived daily met by eager Peruvian interpreters and guardians. We worked in a mobile MASH-like scene, set-up and broken-down completely daily in an orchestrated dance of work and sweat, and love. Sometimes less is more, as was the case is our daily work. Human touch meant the most. A smile. A touch. A handshake. Twinklings glean in direct eye to eye contact. All greatly appreciated. We cared for their needs the best we could, at the moments we had, with the equipment and talent at hand. Medical complaints and problems were treated in concert with spiritual care. Our hands were more than just our hands. There are more people to help, and more in need. We have been asked, and will answer by returning to care for more of “the forgotten ones”. We do this gladly. Will you help me too? D.L. Stroop, CRNP

Reviving 5,000 Years of Civilization bining both Western and Chinese instruments, accompanies the dancers with stirring, original scores.“It’s absolutely beautiful,” Robert Stromberg, Academy Award-winning production designer for the film Avatar said after seeing the show in Los Angeles. “It was so inspiring. I think I may have found some new ideas for the next Avatar.”
Today, where can you go to discover authentic Chinese culture? You can find it at Pittsburgh’s Benedum Center for the Performing Arts, in a show that cannot even be seen in China. In February, the world’s premier Chinese music and dance company, Shen Yun Performing Arts, will be at Benedum Center for a celebration of traditional Chinese culture as it was meant to be. “China was once known as ‘the Celestial Empire’,” says Shen Yun conductor Chen Ying. “Calligraphy, music, painting, and even the Chinese language are believed to have been passed down from the heavens.” Fast-forward to the present and you discover that these traditions have almost completely disappeared, wiped about by the Communist Party’s political campaigns. The Cultural Revolution of the 60’s and 70’s was especially damaging. A trove of ancient artifacts, temples, and literature was destroyed in the name of the Communist revolution. Many of China’s most renowned operas, folk songs, and popular lore were altered for the sake of propaganda. Chinese culture has never fully recovered. Renaissance Enter Shen Yun Performing Arts. In 2006, a small group of overseas Chinese artists came together with the shared mission of reviving this heritage. They founded Shen Yun in New York and, taking advantage of the opportunity of artistic freedom, set out to bring a long-lost culture back to life. “Shen Yun literally means ‘the beauty of divine beings dancing’,” says Julianne Xu, one of the company’s bilingual presenters. “It’s a very rare kind of arts group. Shen Yun presents to audiences all over the world a true culture, something you don’t see even in modern-day China.” Shen Yun blends traditional Chinese dance and music, taking the audience on a journey through 5,000 years of history. Digital backdrops extend the stage, transporting audience members to distant lands and eras. An orchestra, the only one in the world com-
Timeless art At the core of Shen Yun performances is classical Chinese dance, an age-old art form complete with its own system of training and movements. Thousands of years have refined it into a distinctive dance system embodying traditional aesthetics. Classical Chinese dance is known for its expressiveness. Dancers can vividly depict a wide range of emotions and virtues—righteousness, loyalty, benevolence, tolerance. Chinese dance’s external form includes hundreds of unique movements and postures. An accomplished performer makes them appear effortless, but they require immaculate coordination of the entire body that takes years of rigorous training. Classical Chinese dance also has an extensive array of challenging techniques. Jumps, spins, flips, aerials, and other very difficult tumbling moves supplement and enhance the dance’s expressive powers while adding vigorous physicality and tremendous energy. Along side classical Chinese dance, Shen Yun features a variety of folk and ethnic dances, presenting China’s rich diversity. “It was an extraordinary experience,” Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett told reporters after watching Shen Yun in Sydney. “The level of skill, but also the power of the archetypes and the narratives were startling. And of course it was exquisitely beautiful.” For an uplifting experience and an inspiring taste of one of the world’s most ancient and spectacular cultures, there is no better option. Shen Yun will be at the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts for two performances on February 19-20. For tickets or more information, go to: ShenYun.com or call: 1-888-974-3698.
Igniting the Future at Bishop Canevin High School Bishop Canevin High School has recently aligned itself with the spirituality and pedagogy taught by St. Ignatius Loyola, who founded the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) in 1540. This new alignment with “Ignatian Spirituality” will serve as the focus for the spiritual, academic and social formation of Bishop Canevin students during their high school years.
Bishop Canevin is the only school in Western Pennsylvania whose mission will be focused on Jesuit ideals. “Spiritually, academically, and athletically, Bishop Canevin High School is one of the truly outstanding Catholic high schools in the Diocese of Pittsburgh,” stated Bishop David Zubik. “The efforts focused on the spiritual and educational traditions of St. Ignatius Loyola and the Jesuits will undoubtedly further strengthen the uniqueness of Bishop Canevin High School and serve as an excellent choice for parents in the secondary education of their children. I look to Bishop Canevin High School to serve as a leader in education for many years to come and I encourage parents to explore the many advantages offered through their outstanding programs,” he said. Jesuit schools, the largest educational network throughout the world, aim to develop students who are academically advanced and committed to actively promote Social Justice at both the local and global levels. These educated people would then help transform others by their example through running the affairs of the world in a civilized, moral and compassionate manner. “Our students are focused on giving of their time, talents and resources for the benefit of others. They live the Ignatian principle to be “a person for others,” said Bishop Canevin president, Ken Sinagra.
On the part of the administration and staff, there is an environment created in the school which embodies the core tenet of Jesuit education - “cura personalis”, the care for the entire person: body, mind, spirit, intellect and social wellbeing. “Our aim and goal is to care for each and every student in what he or she needs in order to reach their full human potential. Some students need greater assistance in their studies, some in social skills, some in development of speaking and writing, and others with their faith. By graduation, we hope to have impacted them in such a way that they are ready for the demands of college and the world. At the same time, we hope to have instilled in them the appreciation and awareness of God’s creative beauty found in the sciences, math, music, art and the humanities,” said Mr. Sinagra. Bishop Canevin students have the opportunity to take advanced courses through the Jesuit Virtual Learning Academy. JVLA courses are taught online by seasoned, certified Jesuit high school educators throughout the United States. Students in Jesuit schools are connected with each other in the virtual learning environment where they complete college level studies and can discuss curricular issues with their teacher and each other. Bishop Canevin students are currently taking JVLA courses in “AP Micro Economics,” “AP Psychology,” “Multimedia Authorship,” “Introduction to Astronomy,” and “AP Environmental Science.” This opportunity for an expanded advanced curriculum at the university level includes opportunities for study in courses such in AP Art History, AP Music Theory, Beginning Arabic, Beginning Mandarin, African- American Studies and Digital Photography among many others. The courses provide a unique opportunity for Bishop Canevin students to study with their peers across the country in an Ignatian context. While Bishop Canevin is not administered or overseen by the Jesuit religious order, the school will use their outstanding educational methods as its model for education. “Our plan,” said Mr. Sinagra, “is to excel in the next ten years and beyond as the model Ignatian school in the Greater Pittsburgh area. We look to provide our students with an excellent high school education and college-prep foundation for which the Jesuits are well known.” Students interested in applying to Bishop Canevin or scheduling a “shadow day” may contact Mrs. Marianne Reinhart, Vice Principal, at 412-922-7400 ext.28 or reinhartm@ bishopcanevin.org

Natural Gas Technology
Cleaner Long-Haul Engines Guzzle Diesel or Natural Gas Companies are developing powerful engines that can run on natural gas together with diesel.
Cheaper freight: This GE locomotive can run on both diesel and natural gas.
Technology that allows diesel engines to instead run primarily on natural gas could provide an economical way for railroads and shipping companies to shift their vast transportation systems over to natural gas. Such a shift could lower greenhouse gas emissions, since natural gas when burned emits 15 to 20 percent less carbon dioxide than diesel. It could also save shippers money and lower the cost of shipped goods, since the natural gas boom in the United States has made natural gas far cheaper than diesel “The economics are very powerful,” says Mark Little, director of GE Global Research. “Diesel fuel is somewhere on the order of 10 times more expensive than natural gas, per unit of energy. There’s switching going on all over the place.” GE has developed locomotive engines that still use diesel but can also run on up to 80 percent natural gas. It recently started testing the locomotives with the freight railroad company BNSF. Meanwhile, some trucking companies have developed similar technology for long-haul trucks. This month, for example, UPS will begin testing 10 dual-fuel trucks that use technology from Clean Air Power, a company based in Leyland, England. Companies are likely to find dual-fuel engines more tempting than natural gas–only engines, because drivers can revert to diesel if natural gas pumps aren’t available or if the price of natural gas goes back up. “The biggest concern for fleets is the issue of fuel price volatility,” says Amy Myers Jaffe, executive director for energy and sustainability at the University of California, Davis. “So there’s a lot of interest in dual fuel.” Diesel engines can be made to run on natural gas with relatively small modifications (see “Swiss Researchers Make an 80-mpg Hybrid”). In a diesel engine, fuel and air are ignited not with a spark, as in gasoline engines, but by compressing them until they get hot enough to combust. Compression ignition, as the process is called, doesn’t work
well with natural gas alone. It’s too difficult to control exactly when combustion occurs, and the natural gas can detonate— explode like bomb—damaging the engine. In a dual-fuel engine, the problem is solved by injecting a small amount of diesel into the engine to trigger combustion. The main addition needed to convert a diesel engine to a dual-fuel one is a system to inject the natural gas. Beyond that, it’s mostly a matter of altering the combustion timing and air-to-fuel ratio via simple adjustments. GE researchers have also designed a control system that takes into account the load being put on the engine and ambient temperatures, and adjusts the ratio of natural gas to diesel accordingly. This can be useful, for example, when running a locomotive through a tunnel, where the engine heats up to levels that can make natural gas combustion harder to control. In this case, the GE system automatically shifts to using less natural gas. Dual-fuel technology isn’t new—it was demonstrated as early as the 1960s, says Russell Goss, program manager for dual-fuel technology at Caterpillar, which sells dual-fuel generators. But low natural gas prices have recently increased demand and led engine makers to fine-tune the technology to meet emissions requirements and displace as much diesel as possible while still maintaining performance. The technology does have shortcomings. For one thing, most dual-fuel engines can burn no more than 65 to 80 percent natural gas. However, Westport, based in British Columbia, has developed engines that can run on up to 95 percent natural gas. They still use diesel to trigger combustion but are optimized to run on natural gas. Unlike most dual-fuel engines, they don’t run well on diesel alone. In addition to testing the dual-fuel locomotive from GE, BNSF is testing one that uses Westport technology. For applications that require less power than large trucks and locomotives, it’s possible to use spark-ignited engines that can run on either gasoline or natural gas. Although they’re less powerful, these engines can use cheaper emissionscontrol equipment. While dual-fuel technology could facilitate a transition to natural gas, a comprehensive changeover will be held up by the high cost of natural gas engines and the lack of fueling infrastructure. There are still few natural gas pumping stations, especially stations that make the liquefied natural gas (LNG) that’s best for long-distance trucking and rail.

Consol Energy Sells Coal Mines for $3.5 Billion Consol Energy sold five mines in West Virginia and one in Eighty Four, PA to Murray Energy Corp. It will keep its Bailey and Enlow Fork mines in Southwestern Pennsylvania, where much of the coal is shipped to energy-hungry countries like China. Consol is predicting 30 percent compound annual growth in its natural gas production over the next four years as it switches from coal to natural gas. This represents about 50% of Consol’s coal mining. The buyer, Murray Energy Corp., is the largest privately owned coal company in America. Producing approximately 30 million annual tons of bituminous coal that provides energy to households and businesses across the country, Murray has eight underground and surface mining operations, plus 40 subsidiary and support companies. Transporting coal via truck, rail and waterways, they operate the second largest fleet of long wall mining units in the country. With a support team of 3,000 employees in six states, Murray Energy Corporation provides coal to the country's leading electric producers, domestically and abroad.
