Women of the Marcellus
"Today, Energy In Depth released "Women of the Marcellus," the video above that highlights how Marcellus Shale development is re-uniting and strengthening families across Pennsylvania. While many have seen and heard by now of the obvious economic benefits and consumer savings made possible thanks to responsible Marcellus development, this video highlights the stories of three families whose lives have been made materially better owing to these opportunities. From a dairy farmer in Troy who significantly expanded her operations, to a young couple that purchased a bed and breakfast operation in Towanda - all of these stories highlight families brought together, and made stronger, as a result of development in the area."
Quote: "In 2008 alone, natural gas companies paid over $1.8 billion in lease and bonus payments to Pennsylvania landowners many of whom are Pennsylvania farmers."
