PA Marcellus Drilled Wells Data Updated

A few days ago, I talked about the nebulous situation in trying to determine just how many Marcellus Shale permits there are in Pennsylvania. Many of the same concerns with permits can lead to multiple occurrences on the spud report which is the source of the drilled well data in Pennsylvania.

Without going into all the monotonous details once again, as of February 1, 2012, there were 4,534 records on the spud report, representing 4,274 distinct wells.  The following are depictions of the larger number, both spatially and temporally.

    There is no amount of money that should make us want to risk the health of our family and loved ones. Its a fact that the damaging poisonous effects of fracking are killing and leaving people, animals and the land to slowly deteriorate. Air and water are necessities for survival, poison them with hazardous waste and cancer causing carcinogens and you are murdering our people. You are causing earthquakes. This is manmade, not mother nature. What’s wrong with this picture?

      Greed, indifference, and a will to dominate. The little people are expendable. I would recommend leaving the area, if possible. The only help we can expect is from the federal govt, and Obama just stated in his State of the Union that he is behind the fracking. If possible, leave.
