The Appalachian Basin's Marcellus shale is a world-class reservoir and it has now been joined by the prolific Utica shale. Production of liquids from the basin is forecast to grow dramatically as drillers concentrate on rich-gas portions of the Marcellus and Utica. At the same time, the region's tremendous dry-gas assets are its backbone. Both plays offer huge regional extents, reasonable drilling depths, proximity to markets and lustrous well results. The playbook includes a 24" x 36" full-color Marcellus-Utica Shale wall map.
