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.
Part three of our series on natural gas production in the Marcellus Shale focuses on well completion. Take a look.
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.

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.

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?"
Jeff and Donna Williams are lifelong dairy farmers in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania. For them, Marcellus Shale natural gas development is a positive for the farm, community and the county. Watch the video to learn more about their experiences with developing natural gas wells on their property and the installation of pipeline across it.
DC Bureau's documentary "The Marcellus Shale: The Politics of Gas" reveals the controversy surrounding natural gas production in New York. While skeptics of production fear hydraulic fracturing, a widely used technique to extract gas, will ruin the state's pristine waterways, proponents tout potential economic benefits. The political situation surrounding natural gas in New York is tainted. DC Bureau discovered the same year a powerful republican state senator endorsed industry-drafted revisions to gas mining laws, his law firm represented the largest natural gas producer in the state. Partners at the firm also advised local residents on real estate transactions involving mineral rights. In addition, DC Bureau revealed a liberal Upstate congressman championed strict control over hydraulic fracturing at the same time his wife lobbied for the American Association of Professional Landmen, whose members acquired gas leases in the state for energy companies. With investors rallying support to drill in the New York portion of the Marcellus Shale -- which geological experts say may hold the world's largest store of natural gas, the race to tap into natural gas in this pre-Jurassic formation has begun.
In the first of our six-part series on natural gas production in the Marcellus Shale, we explain the process of selecting a site to drill.
