Marcellus and Utica Shale Potential in New York State


Marcellus and Utica Shale Potential 

in New York State

Public Presentation by: Lou Allstadt, Brian Brock, Chip Northrup, and Jerry Acton

What is the potential for extracting natural gas from Marcellus and Utica shale in New York State, given the geology, current technology and economic conditions?  This is a critical question for landowners, elected officials, concerned citizens, and planners. New Yorkers have been watching Pennsylvania’s production and impacts with great interest since 2008 when shale drilling began there.  Now three experts in geology, drilling technologies, and the economics of the gas industry, along with a systems engineer, have studied 5 years of production records from Pennsylvania and test wells in NY.  They have compiled enough information from public and industry sources to address conclusively where the Marcellus and Utica may be productive in New York, and just as importantly, where it is unlikely to be productive.
