Introduction

In 2008 two large natural gas formations were discovered in the  Northeastern United States: The Marcellus and Utica shales. These  discoveries transformed the United States, almost overnight, from a net  importer of natural gas to natural gas gluten; the cost per dekatherm of  gas in the United States dropped from nearly $13.50 to under $3.00.  Hydraulic fracturing, a process which has been in existence since the  1940’s, is the method leveraged to acquire natural gas from these  formations.
