As the traditional center of finance and commerce for our Commonwealth, Southeastern PA is home to investors, manufacturers, workers, services providers, unions, ports and infrastructure that can enhance the responsible development of Marcellus Shale. We believe that the economic impact of Marcellus Shale Development will touch many and diverse local businesses here in the Delaware Valley. Realizing these benefits requires a concerted effort by local businesses to better understand natural gas development in order to align ourselves with the industry’s needs and objectives.
