Learn the basics of what's behind the Marcellus Shale boom in this educational video, created by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for www.post-gazette.com/pipeline Video by Katie Park 2/27/11
Take a complete look at how Range develops Marcellus shale wells. We take a look at planning, drilling, completions and ultimately production from the shale formation.
Peter Saltonstall, a landowner in the Finger Lakes region, takes us on a flyover of natural gas drilling sites in Pennsylvania. We show the scope and scale of hydrofracking in Pennsylvania. Gas pads, pipelines, and road construction are common sites in the rural landscape. Saltonstall considers the potential for job creation, energy independence, and tax gains, while showing the environmental impact of hydrofracking. This video will spark curiosity and inform viewers on both sides of the debate.

Shale gas drilling boom has changed the lives of many Pennsylvanians in ways good and bad. Two-thirds of Pennsylvania sits on top of Marcellus shale, one of the world's largest shale gas deposits. While some other states and countries are taking their time to figure out how to proceed with shale gas drilling, Pennsylvania has welcomed the gas industry and allowed it to move ahead in a rapid speed. An independent filmmaker and journalist Kirsi Jansa has been following and witnessing the various impacts of the shale gas drilling boom in Pennsylvania since the spring of 2011. A 16-minute documentary "Life above Marcellus Shale 2011-2012" provides multiple perspectives of shale gas drilling. It is based on the first 10 episodes of her short documentary series "Gas Rush Stories".

Part four of our series on natural gas operations in the Marcellus Shale focuses on production and marketing.

A video by Scott Cannon http://gdacoalition.org On July 31st, 2011, a group of Democrat and Republican community leaders boarded a bus to travel an hour north to see, hear, and feel the negative effects of gas drilling. This is the tour the gas companies don't want you to see. Sure, there are a few millionaires made from gas drilling, but for every millionaire, there are countless other who are lied to, have their rights stripped away, and are inconvenienced beyond reason, all for the sake of a "bridge" fossil fuel that will eventually run out. We encourage everyone to take a trip through gasland. Talk to people, notice the traffic, look at the once beautiful landscape, and ask yourself, "Is this what I want? Is this what I want for my children and grandchildren?"
In the second part of our series on natural gas operations in the Marcellus Shale, we take a look at well pad preparation and drilling.
