The article reports on the Marcellus Shale assessment by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in the Appalachian Basin which shows about 84 trillion cubic feet of recoverable natural gas and 3.4 billion barrels of natural gas liquids. The Marcellus Shale was considered a potential reservoir rock that could produce gas rather than just a source of gas. Moreover, technological advances and developments in the Marcellus Shale could be significant in the country's energy supply.
