Eastern Ohio is a prime location for manufacturers, energy producers and refiners that consume natural gas or natural gas liquids for fuel or feedstock. Over $64 billion in capital investment tied to shale has been announced in Ohio.

About Shale in Eastern Ohio

Deep, underground shale formations are producing prolific amounts of natural gas and natural gas liquids, such as ethane, propane, and butane. The Utica in Ohio and Marcellus in Pennsylvania and West Virginia are delivering record-setting levels of production. These abundant hydrocarbons are changing how the U.S. fuels its energy needs and global economics in the petrochemical sector.

The Appalachian Basin is dominating shale gas growth.  Since 2012, 85% of shale gas production growth has come from the Utica and Marcellus shales in the Appalachian Region.
