Too much success hurting Marcellus, Utica shale drillers

By Bob Downing Published: September 12, 2013

Too much success is becoming a problem for Marcellus shale drillers, says the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Shale formations such as the Marcellus are producing so much natural gas that the nation's gas supply will exceed its demand by 2017, according to research released on Tuesday by Bentek Energy LLC.

The consultant said its models show production in Pennsylvania and Ohio will be eight times larger than the growth in demand during the next 10 years.

“We've had to pull back on some very profitable plays that just a few years ago were supposed to have tremendous growth,” said Justin Carlson, a Bentek analyst and Tuesday's keynote speaker at the 2013 Penn State Natural Gas Utilization Conference. “It is a substantial opportunity for end-users.”
