Past News Releases


The Marcellus & Utica Databook, Volume 3 has been released today, announced Edward Camp, co-publisher of the Databook and Developer of ShaleNavigator. "The third volume of the Databook offers a complete summary of Q3 and Q4 2012 shale gas development in the Marcellus & Utica plays, says Camp. "Some interesting patterns will be clear to Databook purchasers, especially when comparing to volumes 1&2, while the new Supply Chain Opportunities section offers tools readers can put into action immediately."

Inside the Databook Volume 3:

Over 70 updated maps display where wells are being drilled for in every county across the three state Marcellus & Utica Shale plays. These maps show which companies are doing the drilling, and the major pipeline and gas compressor infrastructure that are critical to bringing gas to market. Additional maps show lease offer and well result data, where available. Together, these maps give readers an overview of the rapidly changing shale gas landscape.

Databook Volume 3 also provides a state-by-state legislative update section, analyzes gas pricing and what it means for drilling activity in 2013, and explains how service companies can participate in the shale gas boom in the all-new Supply Chain section.

Though the just-released Volume 3 has the latest updates, Volume 2 shows 79 Detail Maps, including every county with active drilling from the important first half of 2012, and provides an economic update section that explains how natural gas prices affected drilling in that time period. Additional items only in Volume 2 are a list of New York towns that have voted to either ban or support drilling, and a comprehensive Directory of Landowner Coalitions with contact details.

Volume 1 includes 90 Detail Maps, including every county with active drilling for the full 2011 year, a boundary map delineating wet and dry gas areas, and details on the major mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures that made headlines in 2008-2011. Volume 1 also includes contact details for all 118 drillers active in the Marcellus & Utica region.

Who benefits from the Databook Series?

Businesses in the shale gas development supply chain use the Databook to see patterns of development so their companies will know when and where to be in the rapidly expanding shale play landscape. Landowners and real estate professionals use the Databook to see if there’s permitting and drilling in their areas of interest, and if so, who is being issued permits and who is doing the drilling.
