The amount of Marcellus Shale gas produced in Allegheny County more than doubled in the first half of 2012, with nine online wells concentrated in Frazer and Fawn producing more than 3.6 billion cubic feet of gas, according to new data released by the state Department of Environmental Protection.

  1. It’s great to finally see a industry be successful here in Pennsylvania.I am a BIG supporter of fossil fuels and I just love seeing natural gas produced here in our state.We live in a region that has a strong history of blue collar jobs and the hardest working people in the country.
    All I can say is:
    DRILL,BABY,DRILL!!
    Natural gas,oil and coal are the BEST energy sources we ever had and have.
