According to Gas Business Briefing, Pennsylvania, birthplace of Marcellus Shale activity, generally has been divided into two major producing regions: the Southwest, which includes dry gas, but primarily features wet gas resources, and the Northeast, strictly dry gas-oriented.
There now is a third area of the Keystone State which consultants and producers agree is worth drilling — but Marcellus Shale isn’t the only reason to poke holes in the ground.
The drilling in NW PA is in Utica and Devonian. The counties seeing most of the action now are Mercer and Lawrence.
