The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) cut its estimate of technically recoverable oil from California’s Monterey shale formation.
Researchers from the Duke University Energy Initiative gathered data from communities surrounding ten oil and gas plays to determine the net outcome of increased revenue and service demand costs in these regions.
Over 80 entries were submitted for this year's contest...and four entrepreneurs walked home as winners.
The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Bureau of Forestry is steward of the state’s 2.2 million acre state forest system. The bureau has established a Shale-Gas Monitoring program to determine trends or patterns in shale gas development in the state forests, the first report being released in April.
One of the positive impacts of shale development across the Commonwealth has been the resources poured into updating the Department of Environmental Protection's (DEP) website. This is part 2 of 2 highlighting the public resources available online from DEP.
