State Geological Survey Creates On-Line Marcellus Map With Drilling Locations

The West Virginia Geological & Economic Survey has created an interactive web site that shows the Marcellus Shale formation in the Mountain State and locations of actual drilling sites. WVGES's "Marcellus Shale Mapping System" displays locations of completed Marcellus wells as well as permitted wells. The web site also provides general information about the Marcellus formation, including depth and thickness.
