Could you drill on my land?

That all depends on where you live, the amount of land you own and a number of other factors. The first step would be to determine if there are hydrocarbons in the subsurface land you own. Penn State’s Marcellus Center for Outreach and Research has a number of maps that you can view to determine if your land is in the Marcellus footprint.  If you live in one of these counties, the next step would be to determine if you own the subsurface mineral rights. If you are a mineral owner, we encourage you to contact the National Association of Royalty Owners (NARO) for additional information on leasing your land for natural gas development.
