SEED to host Cline Shale public forum

Sweetwater Enterprise for Economic Development (SEED), the sales tax entity that is responsible for economic development in Sweetwater, will be hosting a “Cline Shale” public forum for those interested in learning more about the Cline Shale Oil Play and how it affects West Texas.  The public forum will be held on Thursday, June 27, 2013 at 6 p.m. in the historic Sweetwater Municipal Auditorium, located at 400 Locust Street in Sweetwater. Art Maberry, President of the SEED Board of Directors, stated that “this is an opportunity to learn more about the fracking process, what other areas are doing and to hear from business leaders on why they located in West Texas.”  The Nolan County Forward Planning Committee, started by SEED President Art Maberry, directed SEED staff to host a Cline Shale public forum in June to “better inform the residents of Nolan County and West Texas about the Cline Shale oil play.”  The forum will have several speakers from the industry and will include an update on the current oil business activities in Nolan County by SEED staff.For additional information, contact the SEED office at 325-235-0555 or by email at or
