Representatives in the oil and gas industry are in Buckhannon this week.

West Virginia Wesleyan is hosting the annual oil and gas equipment show.

The show Thursday featured a vendor's show with exhibits on new technologies and what the industry does every day.

Companies said the oil and gas industry is more important in West Virginia as time goes on.

"It shows the community what we do, it's an opportunity for the various vendors to show to the various producing communities what they do, what services they provide," said Mike McCown, of Gastar.

This is the sixth year that West Virginia Wesleyan will host the two-day expo.
