Pennyslvania may dominate natural gas production in the Marcellus shale for many years, according to experts.
That was the subject of an Associated Press story by Kevin Begos on Saturday.
Pennsylvania is a cost-effective place to drill and more than 2,00 wells have been drilled but not completed. Drillers are likely to complete those wells, despite lower natural gas prices.
Analysts say that Pennsylvania will likely remain the center of Marcellus drilling.
There is little Marcellus shale in Ohio. The deeper Utica shale is what drillers are after in Ohio.
Ohio and West Virginia may be better positiioned than New York to benefit from drillers going after lucrative wet gases: ethane, butane and propane.
Drillers fear that New York could impose stricter rules on drilling.
