Pennsylvania's Department of Environmental Protection has under-counted the number of wells producing Marcellus shale natural gas, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The problem has frustrated industry, elected officials and eco-groups.
A Sunday analysis by the newspaper showed there are 495 more wells producing gas or ready to produce gas than DEP has recorded as ever being drilled.
In addition, 182 of those wells don't show up on the state's Marcellus shale permit list.
DEP spokesman Kevin Sunday says the agency acknowledges problems and is working to clear up the data.
