Marcellus Shale gas drilling information with photos

Shale gas production near schools
Is a one mile setback enough?

The addition of a third drilling pad close to Fort Cherry Junior-Senior High School has more parents in SW Pennsylvania asking questions about the safety of drilling close to schools. Many feel drilling and gas processing sites should be at least 1-mile (5,280 feet) away from schools and other facilities with populations that are more sensitive to air pollution.

New pipelines for Marcellus Shale gas exports
Eminent domain is being used in Pa.

In 2016, half the pipelines in Pennsylvania were at least 45 years old with the majority of US pipelines installed before 1970. Corrosion accounted for 28% of serious pipeline accidents.
