    12. Range Resources in Southwestern PA Range Resources has 570,000 net acres located in southwestern Pennsylvania and estimates that 125,000 net acres are in a “super rich” portion of the Marcellus Shale.  One recent well completed in this area had an initial 24 hour production test rate of 6.4 million cubic feet of natural gas and 1,266 barrels of liquids per day. Range Resources (RRC) refers to a portion of the company’s Marcellus Shale properties in southwestern Pennsylvania as “super rich” due to the high BTU content of the production stream. The company estimates that the natural gas stream of wells in this area will have a minimum 1350 Btu. Range Resources has drilled and completed eight wells into this area and estimates ultimate recovery (EUR) of 305,000 barrels of natural gas liquids, 95,000 barrels of condensate and 3.9 Bcf of natural gas per well.  Range Resources estimates that once in development mode, the cost to drill and complete a “super rich” well will average $4.7 million. The typical well will have a lateral length of 3,742 feet and fourteen hydraulic fracturing stages. The well is estimated to generate an internal rate of return of 95% and a net present value of $10.7 million per well. Source: http://shale.typepad.com/marcellusshale/pennsylvania/

    21. A PSU study* estimated PA economic activity related to shale gas at $11.2 billion, reflecting $1.1 billion in state and local taxes from various sources, and approximately 140,000 jobs (nearly 70,000 direct jobs), based on 1,405 wells in 2010 producing approximately 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day. According to the Marcellus Shale Coalition, gas production could reach 15 billion cubic feet per day by 2015. Depending on the phase of gas well development, various occupations are more involved, such as engineers, geologists and cartographers, welders, and legal workers. Many occupations are affected, but generally the most directly utilized occupations are the heavy equipment operators, general laborers, commercial truck drivers and general office workers, accounting for over 60 percent of the occupations affected. Many experienced roustabouts and roughnecks involved in the daily operation are often employed by the company from out of state, working long hours for weeks, alternating blocks of leisure time off while living in temporary quarters rented by the company. At year end 2011, Pittsburgh MSA unemployment rate was approximately 7 percent, while PA overall was approximately 7.7 and U.S. was 8.5. *Pennsylvania Marcellus Natural Gas Industry: Status, Economic Impact and Future Potential, Timothy J.

Local Ordinances Under Act 13 • Local ordinances adopted pursuant to the Municipalities Planning Code (MPC) and/or the Flood Plain Management Act are the only ones that can regulate oil and gas operations. • Local ordinances shall not contain provisions that impose conditions, requirements, or limitations on the same features or purposes of oil and gas regulations as Act 13.
