Unconventional Gas Production Cut in Half in PA
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) has released their semi-annual unconventional production and waste reports. This data is self-reported from well operators to PADEP. While in the past, this report was limited to Marcellus Shale wells only, now it includes wells in other formations, such as the Utica, which require similar treatment to extract hydrocarbons.
Despite the expanded definition, the gas production for this period is half that of the previous six months, and barely more than one fifth of condensate production:
Here’s a look at just the gas production over the last three cycles:
In the map below, you can see production values for each well that reported for the cycle. Please click the compass rose and double carat (^) to hide those menus, then click the “i” tool and any map icon to learn about specific wells.

A reader commented that Chesapeake data was missing from the production report.
