The Marcellus Formation is a unit of marine sedimentary rock found in eastern North America. Named for a distinctive outcrop near the village of Marcellus, New York, it extends throughout much of the Appalachian Basin. The shale contains largely untapped natural gas reserves, and its proximity to the high-demand markets along the East Coast of the United States makes it an attractive target for energy development.

Videos and PowerPoint slideshows from the firm?s 2009 webinar series on matters affecting Cap and Trade can be found on the link.
