PA, ten years in

Pennsylvania's first shale gas well was drilled ten years ago

How time flies.

Here's where Pennsylvania stands today - by the numbers, from Marcellusgas.org
  • 15,507 permitted unconventional PA wells
  • 13,794 are horizontal wells 
  • 8,664 are drilled or under development
  • 5,547 have reported production values
  • 475 have been plugged
  • 80 new wells added in the last 21 days
  • 4,446 well-pads are permitted in the state

A third of the state's land area is leased for drilling. Pipeline and gathering line development, dotted by compressor stations, has yet to catch up to drilling.

Where will we be ten years from now? Seventy?
