A WVU Engineering alumnus talked with students and faculty about shale drilling innovations Friday.

Billy McCartney delivered the Dow Union Carbide Seminar.

He discussed areas he believes can be improved on, markets that should be created and ethane pipeline issues.

"If you're going to spend half of the value of a commodity to move it, from point A to point B, why not put the consumption in the Appalachian region. That's what I think is very important for us as a state, as a university, and as engineers to make happen. It's a long term process but I'm sure we can do it," McCartney said.

McCartney graduated from WVU in 1995 with a Chemical Engineering degree.
