What are the job opportunities for residents of this region who are unable or unwilling to relocate?

While jobs in engineering, construction, and equipment operations are most plentiful, there are professional services and support positions being filled by firms located in southeastern Pennsylvania. Additionally, many of the jobs at the South Philadelphia and Delaware County refineries are directly tied to Marcellus development. For additional information on employment opportunities in the natural gas […]

Are there plans to add a permanent pipeline for the drilling companies’ water supplies to come into the area or will the locals in shale areas have to hear the rumbling of water trucks forever?

Yes, pipelines can be used to transport water to a well pad and some operators are moving in this direction when logistically possible. The responsible development of natural gas from shale formations involves both the use of fresh water and the return of water from underground formations. Water is often transported by pipeline for its […]

How will PA be affected after the drilling is complete?

One of the natural gas industries main objectives is to minimize our geological footprint and bring properties back to pre-drilling conditions once active operations are complete. In order to reduce our impact we rely on a restoration process that involves landscaping and contouring to previous specifications. Here is some information directly from our website: Why […]

Why is Propane so freakin expensive?

According to the Energy Information Agency (EIA), propane prices are subject to a number of influences, some common to all petroleum products, and others unique to propane. Because propane is easily transported, it can serve many different markets, from fueling barbecue grills to producing petrochemicals. The price of propane in these markets is influenced by […]

Is there a research fund at the state that would use revenues coming in from the industry?

Marcellus Shale operators have paid more than $406 million over the past two years in impact fees, which are allocated to municipalities around the state as well as government organizations that conduct research into new regulations and systems, along with the effect of this growing industry on the Pennsylvania. The Department of Environmental Protection recently […]

When is the pipeline ready for operation?

The first step in pipeline construction is obtaining the appropriate permits and right of way (ROW) easements to construction the line. Upon completion, there are a number of tests conducted to ensure the structural integrity of the line before it goes into operation. These tests include x-raying the welds on the pipe to ensure mechanical […]

How much natural gas is being extracted from wells in my area?

Unfortunately we do not know which county you reside in, however the Pa. Department of Environment Protection has a great online resource where you can view production reports for wells in your area.

What is the economic impact of the development on SEPA?

While the Marcellus Shale formation does not extend beneath SEPA, that doesn’t mean those in the Philadelphia area aren’t benefiting. The most obvious impact is the utility rate savings that everyone, including those in the greater Philadelphia region, have received as a result of this development. Researchers recently found that in 2012, because of reduced […]
