Industry Insights on Marcellus and Utica Shale

Posted in Uncategorized by podcastpgh on November 6th, 2012

Today’s episode covers the Marcellus and Utica Shale formations. Our guest is Joe Baran from Bertison George.  I’ve worked with Joe for the past few years.  He has provided the oil and gas valuations for most of my shale estate planning and probate clients. He provides a lot of interesting information and insights into the industry, including market pricing, infrastructure development, and some of the secondary economic benefits of the industry coming to our area. We focus most of our attention on Pennsylvania and Ohio which is fitting since we recorded a few days before the election.  The oil and gas industry has also focused their attention here with slightly less interest in WVA, and New York State for a few reasons which we touch on briefly.
