- Strong Production: Marcellus and Utica natural gas production has multiplied by a factor of 10 in the past decade, to about 25 billion cubic feet a day - roughly third of U.S. output.
- Market Access: The Rover pipeline, one of several pipes coming on-stream in 2018, will start shipping up to 3.25 MMCFD of natural gas. That's enough to power about 30 million homes
- Robust Midstream Opportunities: Natural gas production has exceeded available pipeline capacity for several years. Infrastructure is the only thing holding back the Marcellus Shale.
