A team of researchers in Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences has found that invasive plants are increasing with natural gas development.

Natural gas contributed $51B to the Ohio and Pennsylvania economies in 2015.

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission will distribute $173 million in impact fees from shale oil and gas drilling to county and municipal governments, the Marcellus Legacy Fund and state agencies.

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection recently approved an underground injection control well for disposal of wastewater.

There were 268 oil and gas drilling permits issued in Pennsylvania’s Marcellus shale play, and 112 permits issued in Ohio’s Utica play in March/April.

Eclipse Resources Corporation successfully drilled its newest record-setting “super-lateral” well, the Great Scott 3H in less than 17 days. The Ohio well had a total measured depth of 27,400 feet and lateral extension of 19,300 feet.

Pennsylvania and Ohio had the two largest annual natural gas production increases from 2015 to 2016, reflecting higher production from the Utica and Marcellus shale plays.

The Energy Information Administration expects that electricity generation fueled by natural gas will continue to exceed that of any other fuel.

Shale gas had its origins in the oil embargos and energy crises of the 1970s, which led to government research to increase domestic energy supplies.

Liquefied natural gas exports expected to drive growth in U.S. natural gas trade; U.S. could be net exporter of natural gas by 2018.
