As you may know, the Marcellus Shale is considered to potentially be the world’s second-largest natural-gas field. A recent IHS report (more info here, too) underscores the fact that safe American oil and natural gas from shale formations will continue to expand, adding more jobs and economic activity, for decades: IHS’s October 2012 report, America’s […]

Does the Commonwealth receive 20% from each well?

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through Act 13, receives an impact fee on each Marcellus shale well which is then distributed to local municipalities, counties and state agencies. More details on the impact fee distribution and rates is available on the Pa. Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission’s website. In 2012 alone, $204 million in impact fee dollars […]
