Endless Mountains Visitors Guide: New Attraction in PA- Visit a Well Pad
History in the Making: Marcellus Shale Natural Gas Drilling
The Endless Mountains Region has embarked on a new and fascinating journey with the introduction of natural gas drilling in the area. Natural gas companies have made residency here as they work diligently to extract the natural gas from the Marcellus Shale formation–a black shale that is thousands of feet underground. The Marcellus Shale lies beneath much of Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio,West Virginia, and adjacent states. As you travel through the Endless Mountains, you may see a well rig towering into the sky,
or a large leveled area of ground with equipment all around.These are all part of the drilling landing pad and gas extraction process.We invite you to learn about and discover this part of history that is unfolding in the Endless Mountains.
To learn more, contact the visitors bureau at 1-800-769-8999, or visit http://www.pamarcellus.com/. (This website is clearly pro-drilling in every way.)
I am going to call the number above and ask where would be a good place to see a gas well.
Here is the website where you, too, can download this visitors guide:
