New York-based National Fuel Gas Co.’s first well drilled into a different shale formation on land that it controls in western Pennsylvania has shown promising results.
The Amherst-based energy company said the first well that it drilled into the Geneseo shale produced as much as 14.1 million cubic feet of gas per day, at its peak, and averaged 8.6 million cubic feet per day during its first 30 days of production.
The Geneseo shale is a layer located above the Marcellus shale, the geographic formation that has attracted most of the attention from drillers during the first few years of the shale gas boom.
