Given the refinery and port capacity here – will products from around the state flow through this region?

The ports and refineries in the Philadelphia region are certainly benefiting from Marcellus development. In fact, the three refineries in the region are sourcing their natural gas needs from the Marcellus and some companies are shipping natural gas liquids from the ports. So to answer your question more directly, yes, Marcellus Shale natural gas is […]

What information does Wall Street get/provide?

The MSC represents all sizes and types of companies – large, medium, and small – some of which are privately owned while others are publically traded. As with any public company, our operators are required to report their quarterly earnings to investors. Further, the privately owned companies are also required to report their production results […]

Is it disruptive to the land?

In order to construct a well pad, vegetation is removed and the land is leveled.  When constructing a pipeline, a right of way is established and cleared. The Marcellus Shale Coalition has a series of recommended practices on Site Planning, Development and Restoration that go into greater detail on land management guidelines. State regulations require […]

How can a university partner with you [MSC or industry] to increase professionals needed to work in your company/industry?

The Marcellus Shale Coalition has partnered with a number of university researchers over the past few years to provide original fact-based research related to the economic impact of natural gas development on the region’s economy as well as research to address environmental matters. For example: the MSC partnered with researchers at Penn State University to […]

What education is needed to understand that hydraulic fracturing is safe?

Each day, the Marcellus Shale Coalition (MSC) and our member companies are engaging communities across the commonwealth and region to help inform all stakeholders about the natural gas development and hydraulic fracturing process. And while natural gas development does involve some risk (like all industrial processes), the MSC works collaboratively with federal, state and local […]

What are the new technologies that are being spawned by the industry?

New technologies are researched, tested and developed on a daily basis across the natural gas industry. From emission control technologies to water management to advanced  drilling rigs, computer software and spill containment systems – processes are refined and new products are developed to further reduce the industry’s environmental footprint that also increase efficiencies. On water […]
