Marcellus Shale FAQs - 16 Found

What factors did the USGS identify to describe reduced or restricted availability or access to Marcellus gas and natural gas liquids, thereby reducing the overall undiscovered resource estimated volume?

The USGS did not exclude any of the Marcellus shale from its assessment study.  The USGS did not restrict the resource availability because of economic, cultural, legal, or any other factor.  The USGS did recognized that geologic properties, such as organic carbon content (“richness”), thickness, porosity, permeability, and thermal maturity vary across the assessment unit areas and impact the resource potential.  These factors were incorporated into its assessment.
