Shale Gas

Natural Gas produced from non-traditional reservoirs has become the hot new trend in recent domestic production. The Appalachian Basin is no different with several interesting shale opportunities.

Marcellus Shale is being developed heavily in Pennsylvania and parts of West Virginia, and companies
are starting to explore opportunities in the Utica Shale in the basin.

Ohio is home to some interesting shale prospects, but as of yet, is relatively unproven.

We at Northwood complete and produce Devonian Shales in Ohio, and we have teamed up with other
companies for deeper, larger shale challenges.
