According to the Pennsylvania College of Technology, 150 occupations and 420 individuals are required to drill and complete a single Marcellus Shale natural gas well. These businesses range from local hardware stores and environmental consulting firms, to water treatment facilities, and manufacturers of all sizes, including well-known companies like U.S. Steel. The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry publishes a monthly report — Marcellus Fast Facts — highlighting the types of jobs and industries impacted by natural gas development.
