Marcellus Shale Could Change the Face of Pipeline Construction in the U.S. Northeast, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - February 15, 2010) -  Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- In the past several years, the Marcellus Shale formation has gained increasing importance as a natural gas and liquids producing region. Located across the states of New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, as well as parts of Virginia, the Marcellus Shale is at the northern end of the Devonian Black Shale Succession, and what lies beneath the ground is now commonly thought to be approximately 500 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and associated hydrocarbon liquids. Estimates go as high as 1,300 trillion to 1,600 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, which would make it even larger than the 900 trillion-cubic-foot North Field in Qatar, which is helping fuel Qatar's growth to 77 million tons of liquefied natural gas (LNG) production by the end of 2010.
