Marcellus Shale Discussion: Directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing are not new. But their current use in extracting natural gas and oil in areas like the Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania has been called a "game changer" by the US Energy Information Administration.
Join the Friends of the Wissahickon and geologist Tim Bechtel on Wednesday, October 23, 2013, at 6:00 p.m. at Valley Green Inn for The Game Changer: Hydraulic Fracturing and the Marcellus Shale. This presentation is part of the popular lecture series Valley Talks, sponsored by Valley Green Bank.
