Marcellus Shale natural gas production is rising even faster this year than energy experts had predicted, and that's having a national impact on energy.

Bentek, a Colorado company that analyzes energy trends, said 2013 production in Pennsylvania and West Virginia is up about 50 percent compared with last year. Figures for the pipelines that take gas out of theMarcellus show that in the first six months of the year, Pennsylvania produced about 1.5 trillion cubic feet of gas, with projections for a year-end total of about 3.2 trillion cubic feet.

That yearly number translates into the equivalent of about 550 million barrels of oil.

The official mid-2013 production figures for Pennsylvania and West Virginia haven't been released yet by those states, but Bentek's figures are considered very

The price of natural gas can only go so low and there's only so much storage. What next?

These growing numbers are fantastic for the local and state economies. I reckon that is why the Eco-imperialists are so against oil and gas production.

Marcellus Shale natural gas output rising fast. Marcellus Shale natural gas production is rising even faster this year than energy experts had predicted.
Take care of the domestic fuel market first and above all else before exporting and selling fuel or natural gas to other countries!
More fracking, more chance to pollute the surface and underground waters. Properly treat the fracking water so it can be released safely on the surface. Recycle water into the underground rocks fracturing Only if there are NO contaminates or pollutants injected into the underground water and rock system at the same time.
Anyone for flaming water from the kitchen faucet? How about More earthquakes from additional ground water and fracking operations?
We need clean drinkable water and uncontaminated lakes and streams!
Drive vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

It's great that there is more domestic energy production but then again it will be sold on the global market to it may not do us any good.

Yes, the industry needs additional pipelines. But it takes time to build them. They may have to slow production until the infrastructure is in place.

The "oil boys," as you call them, will be just as happy to produce natural gas. After all, it's a form of energy.

Cheap wholesale gas has no effect whatsoever on the cost of transmission and distribution.
