The Marcellus Shale is estimated to hold the second-largest deposit of natural gas in the world.
Responsible Development in the Marcellus
Anadarko is among the largest producers of clean-burning natural gas in the United States, and a significant portion of the company’s production comes from the Marcellus Shale in north-central Pennsylvania, where the company currently produces more than 380 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. That’s enough to fuel the daily heating and cooling needs of more than 2 million American homes.
Anadarko is committed to safely producing natural gas in a manner that protects Pennsylvania’s natural resources and is focused on the shared prosperity of the communities around us.
Together with a group of leading Marcellus producers, Anadarko developed a set of Recommended Standards and Practices for Exploration and Production of Natural Gas and Oil from Appalachian Shales, called the Appalachian Shale Recommended Practices Group (ASRPG). Learn more about these efforts at asrpg.org.
The company’s commitment to public safety extends to the improvement and maintenance of roadways in its operating areas. Since 2006, Anadarko and its partners have invested more than $90 million to upgrade more than 370 miles of private, state-route, state forest and township roads and enhance driver awareness in north-central Pennsylvania.
