With record results from test wells in the Utica Shale, pipelines coming on line in the Marcellus Shale and drilling in the Upper Devonian, next year there should be considerably more activity than 2012. According to RigData more than 1,000 Marcellus wells await pipeline hookup, and another 2.4 Bcfd of Marcellus gas could be added soon. That’s a lot of volume. Everywhere we go and everyone we speak to says 2013 is going to be busier than last year.
