A visitor to our site recently asked about the amount of shale gas produced in Pennsylvania by operator. The following table contains data from the first six months of 2012, summarized by operator. It includes the number of wells showing gas production, the total sum of gas produced, and the average production of each operator’s producing wells. The dataset was downloaded on October 30, 2012, which is important to note, as it is sometimes updated without notice.
The results vary tremendously. There could be numerous reasons for this, including the age and location of the wells. This table does not take into consideration condensate or oil production, however those categories are rare in Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale and other unconventional wells.
