HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas officials and leaders in the oil and gas industry will gather in Hutchinson next week to give an update on activity in the geologic formation known as the Mississippian Lime Play.

The discussion set for Nov. 27 is part of a daylong conference on how small businesses and job seekers can benefit from the resurgent oil and gas activity.

The state Commerce Department says Gov. Sam Brownback is among the officials scheduled to take part in the morning roundtable.

A networking session will give small-business owners a chance to meet officials from oil and gas companies and their suppliers. There will also be a career fair in the afternoon.

The event takes place in the Encampment Building at the Kansas State Fairgrounds.
