About the Marcellus Shale

The Marcellus Shale is among the largest natural gas opportunities in the U.S. and is estimated to hold the second largest deposit of natural gas in the world. This tremendous domestic resource has the potential to supply the U.S. with clean-burning energy for more than 100 years.* 

Marcellus Shale activity in Pennsylvania has generated more than $1.6 billion in local and state tax revenue, and has supported more than 275,000 jobs statewide, according to statistics compiled by the American Petroleum Institute in 2012.

Anadarko Operating Highlights

Anadarko’s operations in North-central Pennsylvania are focused on producing the clean-burning natural gas found in the Marcellus Shale formation. The company holds approximately 260,000 net acres in Centre, Clinton and Lycoming counties, with additional non-operated activity in Potter, Sullivan and Tioga counties.
