News, facts and opinions on fracking or hydraulic fracturing with links to Public Meeting announcements on Marcellus Shale activities and the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
We will explore the impacts that Marcellus Shale natural gas extraction has on the environment, including air and water pollution. We address some key talking points for landowners who are considering signing a Marcellus Shale gas lease. Photos of drilling rigs, gas well site equipment, hydro fracing, natural gas facilities and gas pipelines will be added to Marcellus-Shale.us regularly.
See firsthand what a Marcellus gas well looks like with photos of drilling sites and equipment used to frack a Marcellus Shale horizontal well. Find firsthand information and photos of water pollution issues like the Cross Creek Lake and Brush Run fish kills, with official documents you won't find elsewhere on the internet. Learn about the real natural gas extraction issues beyond the landman's promises including royalties and the signing bonus.
Political contribution information related to Pennsylvania politics and Marcellus Shale exploration are also featured from the years Marcellus drilling began through the November 2010 election. We'll follow some of the key legislation affecting hydraulic fracturing and frac fluids, and provide information for citizens who are concerned about protecting their drinking water from the impacts of horizontal gas wells.
Gas drilling meetings and events are posted on the Meetings & Events page, so return often to see what's new at Marcellus Shale US. Marcellus gas production companies may have the right to extract the gas, but citizens have the right to a healthy environment, including clean air and pure water, as guaranteed by the Pennsylvania Constitution.
