New Low for Active US Crude Oil and Natural Gas Rigs
In 2 months, the US saw a 56% decline in rig count, reaching a 33-year low.
Drilling Slowdown Sparks Water Trading
When fracturing slowed last year in the Marcellus, companies holding produced water they did not need for fracturing paid other operators to take it. It provided a cheap source of fracturing water then, and in the future, water trading could reduce the high cost of shipping water.
Turning Dirty Produced Water Into Fresh Water and Salt To Sell
Antero Resources has built a huge plant to turn waste water into fresh water and salt for sale. The $275-million investment in West Virginia is the most tangible indication of how operators in the Marcellus are pushing water reuse.
Ultimate Production Accurately Predicted From Initial Production
In this work, the authors perform automatic decline analysis on Marcellus Shale gas wells and predict ultimate recovery for each well.
Technology, Efficiency, and Midstream Growth Drive Long-Term Future for Marcellus, Utica
While the collapse in oil price is reshaping opinions about the North American shale revolution and the outlook for oil producers, natural gas producers in the United States are in a somewhat different position
Upbeat Natural Gas Producers Show Value of Low Expectations
The price declines for oil and natural gas are equally brutal, with roughly a 50% decline for both fuels.
Increasing Cement-Sheath Integrity To Reduce Gas Migration in the Marcellus Shale Play
This study examines the effects of drilling, completion, and production operations and their associated cyclic stresses on a cement sheath.
Unique System for Underbalanced Drilling Using Air in the Marcellus Shale
Air drilling has become popular in the Marcellus and Utica shale reservoirs because of its higher rate of penetration (ROP) and less resulting formation damage.
Searching for Opportunities in Environmental Trouble
Polluted streams in Pennsylvania could provide a source of water for hydraulic fracturing and help prove a new way to clean up waterways contaminated by coal mine waste.
