Ohio Utica Shale

Standard & Poor's issues major report on Marcellus-Utica shales

By Bob Downing Published: October 19, 2012

From the Marcellus Drilling News:

Ratings agency Standard & Poor’s on Monday issued an important new report on the Marcellus Shale and the key role it’s playing in the United States’ natural gas and overall  energy picture.

Titled “How The Marcellus Shale Is Changing The Dynamics Of The U.S. Energy Industry,” there’s a lot of great information in this 10-page report.

For example: the report lists the Top 15 Marcellus Shale producers, with estimates of how much shale gas they produce (as of fourth quarter 2011).

It also discusses how and why the Marcellus is one of the most cost-effective plays in the U.S. for producers, and why they can make money in the Marcellus at much lower commodity prices for gas than in other plays

It contains a complete list of pending and planned pipeline projects in the Marcellus, including ethane pipelines.
