PITTSBURGH (AP) — The head of Pennsylvania's leading natural gas industry group says she'll be stepping down this fall.

Kathryn Klaber, CEO of the Marcellus Shale Coalition, says Friday that she's proud of what the group has accomplished over the last four years. The coalition represents drillers, pipeline companies, and other industry-related companies.

The group plans a nationwide search for its next leader.

Coalition chair Dave Spigelmyer says the group is grateful for Klaber's tireless efforts. When the coalition was founded in 2008 Pennsylvania produced negligible amounts of natural gas, but production from the Marcellus Shale formation has boomed since then.

The group says Klaber will be representing them at upcoming meetings in Australia and London, as well as hosting the MSC's third annual Shale Insight conference in Philadelphia in late September.
