MARCELLUS SHALE
 

Pennsylvania Impact Fee

Unlike most other drilling states, an impact fee stood in place of a natural gas severance tax in Pennsylvania during the early years of Marcellus Shale gas production


Pennsylvania saw yet another drop in revenue from the annual impact fee from Marcellus Shale wells in 2016, third decline in a row, making it the lowest annual payment in its 6-year history.

Revenue drops have been due to low commodity prices for natural gas and aging Marcellus wells with steep production declines.
