Economic Impact of the Marcellus ShalePennsylvania Northern Tier RegionThe Progress Authority
  • Established in 1993.
  • General Purpose Authority.
  • IDA/IDC.
  • 20 member board of directors-key.
  • Small staff.
  • Certified by the Commonwealth for all Pennsylvania economic development programs.
  • Contracted with Bradford and Susquehanna Counties, as needed in Sullivan and Wyoming.
  • Responsible to facilitate investment and employment enhancement.
  • Local Economic Development.
  • Natural Gas Development Education
  • About 3 years ago we started to educate ourselves adequately about the Natural Gas industry.
  • Unlike Western PA, not familiar- conventional vs. unconventional.
  • Due to heritage, economic impacts are not visible, as compared to impacts with 150 years of development.
  • Continuing Education; from Texas to Canada
  • Traveled to Wise County, Texas to Barnett Shale Play.
  • Similar demographics to our counties.
  • Saw Every Aspect of Natural Gas Drilling.
  • Community impacts.
  • Alberta, Calgary Canada-RIM.
  • GO EXPO Prospect Companies.
  • Gained perspectives on US and Canadian gas industry development & impacts.
  • Understanding the Differences
  • Critically important to realizing the Marcellus impact vs. other gas plays.
  • The conversion focused on climate, topography, demographics, governmental structure, regulations and mineral rights.
  • Translate the industry to Northeast Pennsylvania unlike Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. Critical Components include:
  • High rural population (People/ per sq mile).
  • Many properties; Fragmentation.
  • Dependence on ground water for drinking.
  • Rural infrastructure to support development.
  • Abundant water supply.
  • Characteristics of resources and market proximity.
  • Geographic and political dynamics
  • Availability of Local Infrastructure
  • High Rural Population
  • 72%
  • Highly Fragmented
  • 51 Municipalities
  • Few areas covered by Municipal Water and Sewer
  • High Dependency on Private Water & Sewerage Systems
  • Majority of Roads maintained at local municipal level
  • 1,593 mi/2,495 mi. = approx. 64%
  • Economic Impact Drivers
  • Two Ways to Generate Revenues:
  • 1: Business to Business spending.
  • 2: Payments to land owners. Community Giving
  • Differences in Economic Impacts vs. other plays:
  • Free hold minerals-#1 reason. (PA vs. Texas/Canada)
  • Leasing frenzy- from $25 or less per acre, to $5,700+ (Strategic value)
  • Second largest gas play in the world, next to South Pars/Asalouyeh, located between Iran and Qatar. [1]
  • Now other plays – Eagleford/Ohio/North Dakota/Israel
  • Thickest part is in the Northern Tier Region.
  • Thermal maturity: key to resource value.
  • Rig Counts as a measure.

  • 98% methane no downstream processing; (sweet gas) very little H2S.
  • Outstanding volumes (8mmcf) +/- average 2mmcf +
  • Pipeline infrastructure, Millennium, Stagecoach, Tennessee (Project 300), Transco and others.
  • New Marc I project/hub creation
  • Proximity to largest natural gas market in the US the east coast/megalopolis
  • [1]:PSU UpdateIndustry Swings; Ups, Downs and Use of Money
  • 2008: 3.2 Billion. 2009: 4.5 Billion. 2010-2011:8.7 Billion, 100,000.[1]
  • 20 Billion 200,000 jobs by 2020.[1]
  • Capital projects-Texas use of revenues.
  • (Taxation) Must be cautious with revenues.
  • Employment Swings- “had job, lost job” volatile employment not as severe.
  • Waste water- controlling variable.*(recycling vs. injection and filtration)
  • Alberta/Calgary Plan called for diversity.
  • New York State Factor
  • US rig counts shifting to oil.
  • [1]:PSU UpdateAdditional Economic Motivators
  • Oil company valuation.
  • Reserve and LHP.
  • XTO by Exxon
  • EAST by Shell (next slide)
  • PSU Study recognizes other economic drivers, not evaluation. (pipeline, compression, midstream)
  • Pipeline upgrades-transportation costs-critical.
  • Other formations above and below the Marcellus (seismic testing to 20,000 to 25,000 ft)
  • New Development, housing, commercial industrial.
  • Understanding gas drillers business models.
  • Shell buys US company East Resources for $4.7 billionEuropean oil giant buys US shale gas company East Resources for $4.7B from private investorsDate of article: May 29, 2010NEW YORK (AP) -- Royal Dutch Shell PLC said Friday it will buy East Resources Inc., a major owner of shale gas holdings in the northeast United States, for $4.7 billion from private investors.Europe's largest oil company said it will pay cash for East Resources, a Pennsylvania company that owns more than 2,500 oil and natural gas wells in the U.S. It also controls 1.25 million acres of land, mostly in the energy rich Marcellus Shale region that runs from New York to southwest Virginia.Localized Analytical Study
  • Based on Penn College’s work force model; 400 jobs/well/rig count. Measures employment.
  • Progress Authority in collaboration with Penn College.
  • Special Scope of work to attempt to quantify and measure local economic impact.
  • Model will utilize metrics such as permit activity (January 2010=502 total permits, January 2011=1442 total permits), water utilization, productive wells, leasing activity, etc.
  • Six months (+/-) to complete.
