An abundant supply of clean natural gas

$1.4 billion in state & local tax revenue

160,000 Pennsylvania jobs


That’s the promise of developing the Marcellus Shale

Natural gas and oil jobs are poised to drive Pennsylvania’s economic recovery.

Pennsylvania sits on the Marcellus Shale, one of the largest supplies of natural gas in

America. Exploring for and producing this clean-burning energy could generate more

than $1.4 billion in state and local tax revenue in 2015 – and support 160,000 state jobs.* In fact, it is

estimated that the Marcellus gas industry has already created more than 44,000 Pennsylvania jobs.

With hydraulic fracturing, a process that recovers natural gas from deep below ground, we

have the know-how to safely and effectively unlock this resource while protecting our environment.

Hydraulic fracturing is a technology that has been used since the 1940s in more than a million U.S.

wells. That’s great news for America’s energy security – and jobs and economic prosperity here

in Pennsylvania.
