  • EV Energy says it's unlikely to finalize Utica Shale deals this year
    EV Energy Partners says it doesn't expect to finalize any transactions related to its Utica Shale properties before year's end. EV has placed about 300,000 acres in the formation up for sale. "It's an exploratory shale position, and our focus is more on managing more mature producing oil and gas properties," spokesman Michael Mercer said. (12/24) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Reports quantify Marcellus Shale's productivity
    The Marcellus Shale formation has become the most productive natural gas field in the U.S. despite a slowdown in drilling this year, multiple energy reports say. Marcellus wells in Pennsylvania and West Virginia had daily output of 7 billion cubic feet of gas this year, or about 25% of the country's shale gas production. The play could hold "almost half of the current proven natural gas reserves in the U.S.," a Standard & Poor's study says. Associated Press (12/25) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Don't expect a shale-gas boom in N.Y. next year, expert says
    New York is unlikely to experience the type of shale-gas development seen in Pennsylvania even if Gov. Andrew Cuomo approves operations next year, observers say. "My sense of it is, there will be some activity, but I don't see it as being a big land grab," said Nancy Schmitt of Taum Sauk Capital Management. "I think it's a smaller resource [than Pennsylvania] and it's unproven and there's political risk. There's a lot of reason to believe they'll be more cautious moving into New York."
