NTRPDC Marcellus Shale

In the past few years, exploration and development of the Marcellus Shale has grown exponentially. The region is located at the very center of the natural gas extraction that is taking place in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. It has the potential to have a significant impact on population demographics, social services, roads, environment, and overall identity of the region.

The information surrounding this industry is rapidly evolving. However, below you can find various documents, presentations, and links to other websites with information and resources. If you have any addtional information that should be included, please e-mail info@northerntier.org or call toll free at 888.868.8800.
