Do they drill for it?

Yes, Marcellus Shale natural gas wells are drilled and completed using highly sophisticated technologies, and all done within an aggressive regulatory framework. In Pennsylvania, more than 4,000 horizontal Marcellus Shale wells have been drilled as of October 2012, according to the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC). Here’s more information about the production process, specifically regarding […]

Why is there not taxing of the industry that would help the entire state in terms of revenue?

The oil and natural gas industry is taxed like every other company doing business in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In fact, since 2006, these companies have paid more than $1.6 billion in state taxes, with $420 million coming in 2011 in the form of corporate income taxes, sales tax and employee withholding taxes. This was […]

Does it have anything to do with oil?

The Marcellus Shale, considered to potentially be the world’s second largest natural gas field, contains primarily natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGLs), such a butane, ethane and propone. Yet despite the fact that the Marcellus Shale does not necessarily contain crude oil, the regional, national and global impact of this production is remarkable. A […]

Are they going to have to drill here and tear down buildings?

MSC member companies are committed to creating strong working relationships with mineral- and land-owners, as well as the broader communities where we operate, while working toward the shared goal of making positive contributions while addressing local needs. We would also encourage you to view page 27 of this presentation, which highlights the fact that horizontal […]

Why doesn’t the Marcellus Shale Coalition work with PA Legislature to offer incentives for Business, Homes to convert to natural gas?

Our industry is very engaged with elected officials at all levels of government, including our elected officials in Harrisburg to promote the increased use of this clean-burning resource. The Marcellus Shale Coalition supports the “Marcellus Works” legislation sponsored by State Representative Stan Saylor which is designed to further utilize natural gas as a transportation fuel. […]

Are there any unsolvable technical problems?

The tightly-regulated development of clean-burning American natural gas is without question an industrial process. And like nearly all industrial activities, there is some risk. But natural gas producers and government officials continue to work collaboratively to ensure this risk is mitigated at every step of the process. By leveraging new, more efficient technologies and putting […]

If fracking is so safe, why has Gov. McCrory of NC vetoed legislation to lift a ban on it, not once but twice?

We certainly can’t speak for former Governor McCrory, but we can offer a look at her public statements. Earlier this year, the governor indicated that she supports hydraulic fracturing, and “energy policies that create jobs and lower costs for businesses and families.” However, hydraulic fracturing is new to North Carolina, and she requested that regulations […]
