 Marcellus: Technology

Applying Technology to Safely Maximize Value

Anadarko's application of technology is key to unlocking the tremendous resource potential of the Marcellus Shale. It begins with horizontal drilling, which enables Anadarko to efficiently maximize access to the natural gas-bearing formation, while minimizing the amount of surface space needed to develop these resources. A second essential technology is hydraulic fracturing, which must be applied in order to produce the natural gas from the dense shale formation more than 7,000 feet beneath the Earth's surface. 

Appalachian Shale Recommended Practices Group (ASRPG)

Anadarko played a leading role in the development of the Recommended Standards and Practices for Exploration and Production of Natural Gas and Oil from Appalachian Shales. This set of standards and practices was developed to promote effective safety, environmental and health practices consistent with the key recommendations of the U.S. Secretary of Energy's Advisory Board's (SEAB) final report and the National Petroleum Council's (NPC) Prudent Development report.
