About the Marcellus Shale
The Marcellus Shale running throughout the Allegheny Plateau is recognized as one of America’s most significant natural gas fields. Gas and oil drilling takes place throughout the field, with drilling and shale extraction operations in portions of New York, northern and western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and parts of Delaware. Natural gas reserves have also been found in Marcellus Shale rock in Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas, as well.
High Rate of Injuries in the Marcellus Shale Region
Natural gas exploration and extraction from shale requires drilling operations that put oil and gas field workers at risk of serious injury and death. Despite workplace safety regulations that are among the strictest in the world, workers in exploration and drilling operations throughout the Marcellus Shale region continue to suffer among the highest rates of accident injuries in the industry.
